What is Deism?

In this pre-recorded discussion with Tim Wingate, a World Union of Deists' contact for Minnesota, and Bob Johnson, the founder and director of the World Union of Deists, the basics of Deism are explained.  Deists believe in a supreme intelligence and, for those like Bob, believe that evolution is one of the designs of the designer (aka, God).

Sprinkled with humor, Bob and Tim discuss fruit flies, bumper stickers, faith healing, cults, atheism and other topics as they explain the difference between Deism and organized religions, including Freemasonry.  A number of the United States' Founding Fathers, most notably Thomas Paine, were Deists.  The two provide an excellent discussion about how churches and their doctrines were different from today.

In this podcast, Bob shares why he started the World Union of Deists.  Tim and Bob make some important points about the importance of Deism and how they would like to see Deism develop in the future.  Bob's vision for the World Union of Deists is both altruistic and educational.

Although the show is pre-recorded, Bob Johnson will open the chatroom and address questions or comments posted there.
