Why Deism? Brought to Deism via The Age of Reason


Why Deism?
Brought to Deism via The Age of Reason

by James O

I'm 82 years old, raised in a Christian home.  Until moving away from home I attended a protestant church; later drifting away as many do.  For the last 20 years or so nagging questions about the many exaggerations, murder, plunder and mayhem found in the old testament of the Bible puzzled me.  Questioning supposed experts in the religious field, I got unsatisfactory answers.....and even a few "I don't knows".  Quite by accident I stumbled across a copy of Thomas Paine's The Age of Reason.  At last all the answers to my questions and a whole lot more were contained therein.  I'm in my 3rd reading
of this marvelous book.  There is a tremendous amount of  information packed into this tiny volume.

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  In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist.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