"Declaration of Deist Interdependence"   --   David Pyle  --  2003

Now, this is a work written in a more radical time of my Deism.  They say that imitation is the most sincere form of compliment, and as such I hope Thomas Jefferson realizes that I wrote this work in honor of his "Declaration of Independence"  It was written on July 4th of 2003.
