Some science behind the scenes


Deism is defined as a religious philosophy that derives the existence and nature of  the spiritual world from reason and personal experience. This is in contrast to ‘fideism’ which is found in many forms of Christianity, Islamic and Judaic teachings, which hold that religion relies on revelation in sacred scriptures or the testimony of other people.

Deists tend to assert that ‘God’ [as creator] does not intervene in the affairs of human life and the natural laws of the universe. What organized religions see as divine revelation and holy books, most deists see as interpretations made by other humans, rather than as authoritative sources. Deists believe that God's greatest gift to humanity is not religion, but the ability to reason.
