Deism For Today


Deism today is as viable a philosophy as it was during the enlightenment era of the 17th through 19th centuries. Thomas Paine said it best, “ We have it in our power to begin the world over again. “ The Islamic religion is in the midst of a power grab for world domination, we must put a stop to such ideas of power. Let us not forget the dominance of the Christian religion and the Catholic Church of the middle ages that brought untold bloodshed to the human race. Do we wish to see a repeat of this dominance over the human race, but by the Islamic religion this time. We have but to look at current events to see how ruthless this religion can be, it is a religion of submission and not peace as they proclaim. In the Koran it states — “SURAH 9:29 Fight against those who (1) believe not in Allah, (2) nor in the Last Day, (3) nor forbid that which has been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger (4) and those who acknowledge not the religion of truth (I.e. Islam) among the people of the Scripture (Jews and Christians), until they pay the Jizyah with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued.” Is this to be our future? I for one think not! The cry of “ Give me Liberty or give me death. “ still rings loud and clear.

The first task of the Deistic Revolution in religion is to awaken and educate the people to the reality of Deism and release them from the dogmas of the “Revealed Religions” world wide. To accomplish this task deists must not be afraid to challenge the teachings of the “Revealed Religions” The best tool to do so is to use their own “Holy Books” to show them the errors of science through the use of reason and logic.

Although the numbers of Deists is small compared to the “Revealed Religions” we are truly the pioneers of Deism today. As individual Deists we must be more active in getting the word out about Deism than the “Revealed Religions” promote their religions. We should take advantage of every opportunity to educate and promote Deism.

Many search for truth today which escapes them through the “Revealed Religions” It is not necessary to carry the dogmas of religion in order to believe in god. By embracing deism through the god-given power of reason and logic one is free to worship their god as they deem necessary without the trappings and rituals of religion. Yes we truly have it in our power to begin the world over again or be doomed to repeat the tragedies of the past.

  1. Excellent post. You are right, what we see today is nothing more than a repeat of the ignorance of the Inquisitions and the Holy Wars/Crusades. It seems mankind follows a cycle just like nature. We repeat stupid actions and expect a differnet result (I recall Einstein defining this is the definition of insanity). At some point Reason has to take hold. The advancemant of science and technology is rapidily erroding the relevance of the dogma of revealed religions. One can only hope that more people see our Creator as he truly is – a giver of life and not some personalized, bipolar, egomaniac.

    I’ll be sure to stop in and see you again. Come on over to my blog some time and tell me what you think – quest4light.wordpress.com.

    Take Care

    • Thank you for stopping by, and I hope you retun often to comment on many of the other posts. It is my hard felt feelings that through education, the superstitions of mans religions can be overcome. Until that day arrives man will continue to destroy man for the sake of his god. It will be the people of reason that will eventually prevai to lead mankind to cco-exist with others in peace.
