Jefferson on Revelation:

Commenter Brian asks for evidence that Thomas Jefferson or James Madison believed in the legitimacy of any revelation. I explored the question with regard to Jefferson in this post. I really didn't touch Madison, whose views on revelation are hard to pin down. The best evidence nonetheless indicates Madison's views were exactly like those of the other key Founders -- some revelation is legitimate; some is not; man's reason determines which is what.

And we've come to such a "reasoned" consensus, now haven't we?
