According to the recent lesson manuals, the founding fathers, including Benjamin Franklin, were inspired. All things denote (not connote) that there is a God, and, to quote Mr. Franklin, beer is proof that God loves us and wants us to be happy.
Discuss how your discussion of the first lesson in the manual went.
Did you discuss how almost all astronomers are atheists, the difference between denotation and connotation or that beer is probably from God, even thought it tastes terrible?
