Why Deism?
From Christianity Through New Age Movement and Nervous Breakdowns to Being a Deist

by Rick

I recently discovered, just days ago, Deism and would like to thank you for all the work you have put into reviving it and the Deism website! I started reading your book, Deism: A Revolution in Religion, A Revolution in You, yesterday and can't express how grateful and excited I am about it!

I lost my "faith" when I was in my early teens...when I started reasoning and questioning what I was being taught in Christianity. I then spent 10 years heavily involved in drugs/alcohol. I next spent 7 years studying Eastern religions and New Age thought, trying to find SOMETHING that made sense to me. I finally gave up and became a workaholic with no "religion" for 10 years until I had my first nervous breakdown. In the 10 years since, I have had another nervous breakdown, suffered major depression and ended up on Social Security Disability Income. I finally feel like I have found the answer/philosophy/religion that truly matches my beliefs and have to wonder what my path would have been had I found Deism back in 1993 when you started the World Union of Deists (that was right at the same time I gave up my search for something logical)...

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  In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist.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