New Study Shows the Number of Americans who Believe in God but Not Religion is at Record Highs
A new study by Duke and UC Berkeley shows the number of Americans who believe in God but not in any organized religion is now up to 20%! These millions of people hold Deistic beliefs but probably don't know it. We have a lot of work to do educating people about the existence of Deism! I frequently hear from people who tell me they've believed in God/The Supreme Intelligence but rejected all of the various "revealed" religions for years and thought they were alone in their beliefs and how happy they are to learn they are not alone, that they are in fact Deists! You can help us reach these people by subscribing to our monthly Deism web-zine Deistic Thought & Action! by clicking the "Subscribe" link above.

The survey shows a giant step forward for Deism in the fact that it actually uses the word "Deist" and for the very significant raw numbers it shows as representing the number of people who are Deists. In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist. For a more accurate definition please see our Deism Defined page.

One of the reasons the freethinker Giordano Bruno was tortured and murdered by being burned alive by the Catholic Church during the Inquisition was that he said the Universe is eternal and infinite which violates the superstitions in the Bible found in Genesis. This new study vindicates Bruno.
Obama supporters forget that when all is said and done, Obama is just another politician. This article shows he's proving that he is nothing but a politician by doing more than any other president to mix religion and government, especially through giving tax-dollars to religious organizations.
