Why Deism? I knew I was a Deist.


How I Became a Deist

by Betty Roark

I have known all of my adult life that I was different from my family members, friends, and work associates regarding religion.  I have not been baptized.  I never experienced the feeling that most people relate about their experience when they were so called "saved".  I thought that I was odd and that something was wrong with me.
This is how I was introduced to Deism.  Less than one year ago, my boss approached me with a newspaper article from the Nashville Tennessean.  The headlines of the article had the term Deist in it.  He asked me if I knew what Deist means.  I immediately went into the search engine on my computer and a wealth of information opened up to me.  As I read I knew that I was a Deist.  I haven't stopped reading yet.  I am a happier person, I am at peace with myself, and I am thankful for the day that my Boss posed that question to me.  I read all of your E-mails.  I check every day for new ones.  I forward most of them to a friend who is struggling between Deism and Revealed Religion.

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  In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist.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