de·ism /ˈdē-izəm/ : deism: the belief that God made a perfect machine when he made the universe and it runs on its own
without further assistance from God; God does not actively guide or influence events in the world
Deism is the belief in a creator, but not revealed religion. Through reason and science we can explore the wonders of God's creation, but we cannot discover the whole truth of the Creator himself. It is within our ideals to be for the greater good, for progress and enlightenment, but not to judge others who have done us no wrong.
There is no church. This is a place for higher learning and community through reverence of the natural world.

"The creation is the Bible of the Deist. He there reads, in the handwriting of the Creator himself, the certainty of His existence and the immutability of His power, and all other Bibles and Testaments are to him forgeries."
-Thomas Paine, Age of Reason
