Is there no words on Benjamin Franklin's monument ?
I found a picture of Benjamin Franklin's monument and wasn't able to see any words on it.

Why didn't people just use the epitaph Benjamin wrote himself when he was 22 years old:

Quote:The body
Of
Benjamin Franklin
Printer
(Like the cover of an old book
Its contents torn out
And stripped of its lettering and gilding)
Lies here, food for worms.
But the work shall not be lost
For it will (as he believed) appear once more
In a new and more elegant edition
Revised and corrected
by
The Author.

"Throughout the day, quotes from Franklin are projected onto the walls, and graphic panels highlighting his life and accomplishments provide visitors with a still greater appreciation of this Founding Father."

Skepticism is not a position; it is an approach to claims.
Science is not a subject, but a method.
