Francis Bacon The Father of Science

Sir Francis Bacon (1561-1626) is known as the Father of the Scientific Method. After all, he developed it.

That’s great, but what does Francis Bacon have to do with Our Lost Founding?

In fact, Bacon played a leading role in creating the British Colonies of Virginia and the Carolinas. Furthermore, he is believed to have drafted two Virginia Colony charters. As such, he is arguably among the Founding Fathers of the United States of America.


In a confession of faith he wrote:
“I Believe that nothing is without beginning, but God; no nature, no matter, no spirit, but one, only, and the same God. That God, as he is eternally almighty, only wise, only good, in his nature; so he is eternally Father, Son, and Spirit, in persons.”

He added:
“[He] created heaven and earth, and all their armies and generations; and gave unto them constant and everlasting laws, which we call nature.”
