Why Deism?  From None to Deism

 

Why Deism?
From None to Deism

by Bethany B.

Over the last few weeks I have been reading different books, and it lead me to your website. I actually found it through research I did on a post I saw on an Atheist's Facebook page. I don't remember what the post was about, but through my research and reading, I found your book: Deism: A Revolution in Religion, A Revolution in You. I have never claimed to be an Atheist, but I have never found anything to "associate" myself with.

I have always believed in God (I actually have believed in a Mother and Father God, which I found out just a few months ago was more of a Pagan belief), but I have never believed in the "Bible God". I found it cruel and contradictory. I made the decision when I was 13 that I would never attend another church service because I was told "God" gave babies AIDS to punish their parents, and people who have never heard of the "Bible God" would go to Hell because it was their fault for not being "saved". I have kept the promise I made to myself over 16 years ago, and have not regretted it once.

After reading your book, several other books, and looking at different websites, I have finally found others who feel (mostly) the same way I do!! It has been a great relief to me to finally find a group who wouldn't look at me like I have lost my mind. My boyfriend accepts my thought processes when it comes to areas like this, but I have been called an Atheist many times. Solely because I said I was not a Christian.

I have two children and I do not want to them to encounter the fear and negativity I had when I was younger due to religious beliefs. I want my girls to be good, honest, hard-working women who do not have to say "I'm a Christian!" in order to feel good about themselves. I want them to believe that God does exist, and They love them unconditionally. My children will grow up with understanding instead of fear.

I am looking forward to reading the books that are being sent to me!!

Thank you

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.

Obama is making the mixing of church and state worse than ever before.
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.
