Yes I am a Deist. I am a free thinker. My own mind is my own church. Religion is a human invention that has been misused and abused through time. I believe in God not religion and God gave us the ability to reason.

so, im about a year late on my comment or so yes, xD i was going through the few deist art there is and i noticed your beautiful little stamp~ and then when i went to read the description i noticed it was based off of quotes from very dignified people. id like to bounce off concepts and beliefs with you if you'd like
Well I thought that way too. I discovered Deism when I was reading about the founding Fathers. In particular Thomas Jefferson, Thomas Paine, Benjamin Franklin, and George Washington. They were Deists not Christians.
Only because it is the closest thing to what I believe. My beliefs are actually a lot like that of the ancient Greek gods, and the way that they interact with humans. I do believe in a god and a devil, and that they do watch us, and that they interfere with our lives, but mostly in the same way that two four year olds will crouch down on a street corner and observe and play with a trail of ants. I however don't believe that either one really created us. I do think that we were a sort of random course of nature.

Well the Deism movement did happen in the 1600's to the early 1800's. It was succesful until the reform era. Religion should not change but improve. As in some of the dogma has been misread. I believe many religions to be ridiculous because they say it's God's religion when God never said create me another religion. That would be cruel of him. And God is not cruel.
