deist are not theist [Trollville]
Things I hate: I have to fight for deism is not theism. 1. a deistic2.5 'god' can be base on the same reason and deduction as a "strong" atheist. 2. Less important, our founding fathers were deist (not the same brand of deism as today) and they gave you rights to be atheists By lumping my deistic beliefs violates my first two statements. I get pissed off when I dabble in deism and the RRS labels me as a theist. As distasteful to RRS, a new language need be constructed concerning what 'god' is or is not. I am not going to reply to anyone that simply state what your 'god' is. The proof of burden lies equally among "strong" atheist and theist. I will only reply to people who want to (de) cultivate my/our conception 'god' through reason. Swallow the pill, my conception of what 'god' is or not is linked to your sentience. Any person that places my conception of 'god' on the same plane as unicorns and flying spaghetti monster will go to HELL Fortunately I will see you there. Deism is more closely associated to agnosticism than theism. You pricks (i.e. intolerant atheists) de-elevate deism to theism. Again, our deistic founding gave you the right to be critically "patriotic" and to be atheists. Our deistic founding fathers did not put "under God" into the pledge of the allegiance or "In God We Trust" into our currency. Our founding, deistic fathers would be turning over in the grave if our current leaders labeled our country as a Christian Nation I hate to be a prick, but some people here de-elevate my deism to theism. They do it so rudely to label my/our conception of 'god' to unicorns and flying spaghetti monsters. It is our deistic tradition that gave us the Bill of Rights and Declaration of Independence. I admit that they are flawed and can be improved upon, but unicorns and flying spaghetti monsters are not the answers. They are simply a refutation to the current problem and provide more problems than answers. I know this was a tangent/rant, but deism is not theism. I agree that we live in a "Christian Nation" and it sickens me. My deism is not theism.
I asked to be banned, so I was banned.
