Thomas Jefferson

Jefferson placed significant value on the ability of human beings to use reason to understand their world.  In fact, Jefferson was so opposed to mysticism that he removed from his bible any account of the miracles that Jesus is alleged to have performed.  The resulting Jefferson Bible, contained only those precepts that Jefferson believed were integral to the moral philosophy of Jesus Christ.
