Oddly enough, there were also 95 Theses that Martin Luther, a German monk, famously nailed to the door of the Castle Church in Wittenberg in 1517 to express his displeasure with the Roman Catholic Church's practice of charging people money to be forgiven their sins.
This eventually led to the Protestant Reformation, a billion and a half splinter sects of Christianity, Pilgrims, American Evangelicalism, Jerry Falwell, Pat Robertson, and the practice of charging people money to be forgiven their sins.
Martin's theses and eventual independence from the Church may be seen as a sort of precursor or inspiration to our own (mostly Protestant) Founding Fathers' Declaration of Independence from Great Britain.
They certainly may be seen as that if you try hard enough. Try harder!
Go back to Day 96.
