Principles of Nature by Elihu Palmer


Principles of Nature Elihu Palmer


This powerful and thought provoking book both enlightens and entertains! Written by a very good friend of Thomas Paine, Elihu Palmer, Principles of Nature belongs on the bookshelf of every Deist and freethinker!

Elihu Palmer was an ordained Presbyterian minister from Connecticut who valued truth much more than dogma and, therefore, became a Deist. In 1796 he started the Deistical Society of New York and became a close friend and fellow Deist of Thomas Paine.

In 1793 he became blind due to yellow fever. However, this did not stop him in his efforts to promote Deism! His wife helped him to continue the Deist struggle for enlightenment and was of great importance in helping him write this excellent book. Perhaps his blindness and the Bible's false promises of "faith-healing" gave him even greater insight into the reality that is Deism.

Palmer does a great job in both conveying the sublime natural beauty of Deism while also making the shortcomings of the Bible crystal clear. Thomas Paine had this to say to Elihu Palmer regarding this important book:  "I received by Mr. Livingston the letter you wrote me, and the excellent work you have published. I see you have thought deeply on the subject, and expressed your thoughts in a strong and clear style. The hinting and intimating manner of writing that was formerly used on subjects of this kind produced skepticism, but not conviction. It is necessary to be bold." And bold this book is!!

News of Interest to Deists
A recent survey on religion shows there are 34 million Americans who are classified as "Nones", that is they do not embrace any of the "revealed" religions and the vast majority of them are not Atheists. In actuality, the vast majority of the "Nones" are actually Deists!

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  In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist.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.

Astronomers report a recent study strongly indicates the Universe is infinite.
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.

Does the Abraham Accord Promote Peace or a Plan For War? 
The Abraham Accord between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and the US seems to be more of a war plan against Iran than any kind of legitimate peace agreement.
