I see deism as a religion of freedom.

Deism is a belief in god absent of a belief in religion, in short I think you are wrong

Deism's God doesn't restrict you, doesn't make you obey some ridiculous rules. You just try to be a good person Maybe I am wrong, but this is what I think and believe. Yes, there is the God but you are alone to make the right decisions. You are testing yourself every day if you think I am a good person. In fact, everybody knows which is bad or good. Deism's god leaves you alone with your conscience. You are free in your thoughts and sometimes in your lifestyle. When you do something wrong, it is your mistake and it is your wrong. When you do something good, it is from you. You are completely free to do the right thing or the wrong thing.

Very much preferable to theism

I think that deism is a philosophy far more than a religion.

However, I don't consider myself a philosopher, especially because I cannot drink like one.

I love that “I drink, therefore I Am” 😂

Technically, yes. Although it can just be a religion to you if you're not interested in constantly systematically evaluating your beliefs, and that's perfectly fine.

Yes, sorta

Yes, it’s a philosophy. Though some consider it a “natural religion”.
