Why Deism? I discovered I was a Deist . . . and much more!


How I Became a Deist

by M. S.

To tell you the truth, I don't know exactly how I came to know about Deism. I do remember that I was on the internet doing research on many scriptures that I have always had a hard time believing in by "faith". While searching, I found scriptures that I had never noticed before. Mainly because most churches that I had attended NEVER discussed such subjects as child abuse, murder, genocide, or many other ungodly acts in the bible. Scriptures that I had NEVER heard read  from the pulpit! At first I was sad and mad at the same time by these horrific scriptures. I was disappointed by what I felt to be intentional deception from "revealed religions."  They have no answers, so they will tell you to pray about your questions and ask for revelation. Just believe and have "faith"! I wanted more. I wanted  truth. BLIND faith wasn't working for me any longer! I wanted answers!!!!
Somehow  I ended up on Deism.com. Deism described the God of my dreams. The God that I can honestly say that I love!  I actually get teary-eyed at times when I think of how awesome God Is. He wants us to live life. As I wrote in my article "Will The Real God Please Stand Up", (December issue of THINKonline!) "The real God would never cause death to any living creation, out of hatred, rage, vengeance."
I am free. Free indeed! I am grateful that I finally found the truth...or maybe the truth found me. All I know is that is how I discovered that I am a Deist. My Creator God made it possible for me to live in a beautiful World, in a awesome Galaxy, that is located in HIS incomprehensible Universe. I can live with that...truly live!!

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  In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist.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