Since I was a kid I've been hearing stories about this so called "Father of our Country". Yes, there are stories of his life and what he did but people back then weren't very well educated and sophisticated as we are today. They could have been misinterpreting what was going on or under the influence of wine or moonshine which was widely manufactured in those times. No picture exists of this man other than some paintings. That could be anyone in those paintings or it could all be a great hoax! Perpetrated by Separatists seeking to benefit from breaking away from England and getting no bid contracts for Revolutionary War machinery. In fact, I'm so convinced that George Washington never existed and you good people have been lied to for so long that I'm gonna' post a new thread about the George Washington hoax every day until you all throw up your arms and say "Alright! Alright! You win! I believe you!". Interesting sidebar: I do believe in 65 million year old Dinosaurs though. Plenty of Dinosaur fossils around as proof.
