Explanation of Deism

To the Atheist group and their spokesman Richard Dawkins and to Mr. Deity the buffoon. They all have one thing in common. They have kept themselves from acknowledging the true Creator as creation itself testifies to. They have literally blinded themselves by their rightful hatred of the false Bible gods and by doing this have accepted the Churches wrong definition of Deism as a god that started everything and then went away leaving man to fend for himself. By that placement of Deism they lumped it together with the other word the church invented called Atheism. To make sure they turned all their followers against these two forms of thought of which the former was the greater threat, Webster a devout Christian placed these words in his dictionary Falsifying Deism closer with the definition of Atheism. Thus insuring no god fearing man wanted to be. After all wasn't that in one of the parables where the seed fell on poor soil only to spring up, whither and die? Of coarse it was. And then there was doubting Thomas. How much better it would be for those who haven't seen and still believe? Forget your natural reason because the bible shows that comes from the devil who tempted Adam and Eve to eat from the tree of knowledge. Of course this does not hold true in the Hebrew Religion, o them the door was never closed. Your god, the Christian bible instructs, wants you to remain dumb. Unless you become as little children you can not enter the kingdom of heaven. You do realize after that original sin the bible god cut off heaven to all mankind. Thousands of years later he lamented; found a holy, engaged to another, young female child, well under the age of consent, (to consent?) (bearing God's son), which became true man and true god in order to have himself murdered and spilling his human blood as a sacrifice (Redemption) for Adam's original sin, reopening the door to life everlasting; saving mankind to enter eternal life in heaven. For he so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son to die for mankind freeing him from the curse of original sin. Baptism became the ritual to replace circumcision because it was designed to be palatable for the Gentiles..
And if the Atheist stops keeping a closed mind due to the absurd Bible Gods he, as well as the Deist are arguing with, then he will realize as Anthony Flew (head of the Atheist for decades) did and I quote. "The Deist Conception of a God exists by observation and rightfully so! There is no carrot or stick for believing or not believing. After all you are but a link toward the end result which in all probability is a long way off. Still my reason tells me if I lived a good life toward my fellow humans, I am sure Providence will provide for my demise." Everything existing that we observe in the Universe is governed by Natural Law.
Reason in this arena has no control influence on an Atheist and that could be a danger with those of impaired mental genes from Birth or mind distorting drugs..

A qoute from Thomas Payne:
"Deism teaches that the only word of God is the Creation. But some, perhaps, will say: Are we to have no Word of God - no revelation? I answer, Yes; there is a Word of God; there is a revelation. The Word of God is the creation we behold and it is in this word, which no human invention can counterfeit or alter, that God speaks universally to man. It is only in the Creation that our ideas and conceptions of a Word of God can unite. The Creation speaks a universal language, independently of human speech or human languages, multiplied and various as they are. It is an ever-existing original, which every man can read. It can't be forged; it cannot be counterfeited; it cannot be lost; it cannot be altered; nor, can it be suppressed. It does not depend upon the will of man whether it shall be published or not; it publishes itself from one end of the heavens to the other. It preaches to all nations and to all worlds; and this Word of God reveals to man all that is necessary for man to know of God."

The scientific principles that man employs to obtain the
foreknowledge of an eclipse, or of anything else relating to the
motion of the heavenly bodies, are contained chiefly in that part of
science which is called trigonometry, or the properties of a triangle,
which, when applied to the study of the heavenly bodies, is called
astronomy; when applied to direct the course of a ship on the ocean,
it is called navigation; when applied to the construction of figures
drawn by rule and compass, it is called geometry; when applied to
the construction of plans or edifices, it is called architecture; when
applied to the measurement of any portion of the surface of the earth,
it is called land surveying. In fine, it is the soul of science; it is
an eternal truth; it contains the mathematical demonstration of
which man speaks, and the extent of its uses is unknown.
It may be said that man can make or draw a triangle, and therefore
a triangle is a human invention.
But the triangle, when drawn, is no other than the image of the
principle; it is a delineation to the eye, and from thence to the
mind, of a principle that would otherwise be imperceptible. The
triangle does not make the principle, any more than a candle taken
into a room that was dark makes the chairs and tables that before were
invisible. All the properties of a triangle exist independently of the figure,
and existed before any triangle was drawn or thought of by
man. Man had no more to do in the formation of these properties or
principles, than he had to do in making the laws by which the heavenly
bodies move; and therefore the one must have the same Divine origin
as the other.
In the same manner, as it may be said, that man can make a
triangle, so also, may it be said, he can make the mechanical
instrument called a lever; but the principle by which the lever acts
is a thing distinct from the instrument, and would exist if the
instrument did not; it attaches itself to the instrument after it is
made; the instrument, therefore, cannot act otherwise than it does
act; neither can all the efforts of human invention make it act
otherwise- that which, in all such cases, man calls the effect is no
other than the principle itself rendered perceptible to the senses.
Since, then, man cannot make principles, from whence did he gain
a knowledge of them, so as to be able to apply them, not only to
things on earth, but to ascertain the motion of bodies so immensely
distant from him as all the heavenly bodies are? From whence, I ask,
could he gain that knowledge, but from the study of the true theology?
It is the structure of the universe that has taught this knowledge
to man. That structure is an ever-existing exhibition of every
principle upon which every part of mathematical science is founded.
The offspring of this science is mechanics; for mechanics is no
other than the principles of science applied practically. The man
who proportions the several parts of a mill, uses the same
scientific principles as if he had the power of constructing a
universe; but as he cannot give to matter that invisible agency by
which all the component parts of the immense machine of the universe
have influence upon each other, and act in motional unison together,
without any apparent contact, and to which man has given the name
of attraction, gravitation, and repulsion, he supplies the place of
that agency by the humble imitation of teeth and cogs. All the parts
of man's microcosm must visibly touch; but could he gain a knowledge
of that agency, so as to be able to apply it in practice, we might
then say that another canonical book of the Word of God had been
If man could alter the properties of the lever, so also could he
alter the properties of the triangle, for a lever (taking that sort of
lever which is called a steelyard, for the sake of explanation) forms,
when in motion, a triangle. The line it descends from (one point of
that line being in the fulcrum), the line it descends to, and the cord
of the arc which the end of the lever describes in the air, are the
three sides of a triangle. The other arm of the lever describes also a
triangle; and the corresponding sides of those two triangles,
calculated scientifically, or measured geometrically, and also the
sine's, tangents, and secants generated from the angles, and
geometrically measured, have the same proportions to each other, as
the different weights have that will balance each other on the
lever, leaving the weight of the lever out of the case.
It may also be said, that man can make a wheel and axis; that he
can put wheels of different magnitudes together, and produce a mill.
Still the case comes back to the same point, which is, that he did not
make the principle that gives the wheels those powers. That
principle is as unalterable as in the former case, or rather it is the
same principle under a different appearance to the eye.
The power that two wheels of different magnitudes have upon each
other, is in the same proportion as if the semi-diameter of the two
wheels were joined together and made into that kind of lever I have
described, suspended at the part where the semi-diameters join; for
the two wheels, scientifically considered, are no other than the two
circles generated by the motion of the compound lever.
It is from the study of the true theology that all out knowledge
of science is derived, and it is from that knowledge that all the arts
have originated.
The Almighty Lecturer, by displaying the principles of science
in the structure of the universe, has invited man to study and to
imitation. It is as if He had said to the inhabitants of this globe,
that we call ours, "I have made an earth for man to dwell upon, and
I have rendered the starry heavens visible, to teach him science and
the arts. He can now provide for his own comfort, AND LEARN
Of what use is it, unless it be to teach man something, that his
eye is endowed with the power of beholding to an incomprehensible
distance, an immensity of worlds revolving in the ocean of space? Or
of what use is it that this immensity of worlds is visible to man?
What has man to do with the Pleiades, with Orion, with Sirius, with
the star he calls the North Star, with the moving orbs he has named
Saturn, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, and Mercury, if no uses are to follow
from their being visible? A less power of vision would have been
sufficient for man, if the immensity he now possesses were given
only to waste itself, as it were, on an immense desert of space
glittering with shows.
It is only by contemplating what he calls the starry heavens, as
the book and school of science, that he discovers any use in their
being visible to him, or any advantage resulting from his immensity of
vision. But when he contemplates the subject in this light he sees
an additional motive for saying, that nothing was made in vain; for in
vain would be this power of vision if it taught man nothing."
