    dude....you made an incorrect assertion. If you have studied the people associated with the American Revolution, you would know that many of the fathers were deist freemasons.

    You are really quite impossible to converse with....and you post irelevant garbage that you know nothing about.

    Lets see Dsade you are an avowed Atheist how does Deism correlate to Atheism please give me more light on this subject or is Wikipedia ok http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Deism


    Deism is a religious and philosophical belief that a supreme god created the universe, and that this and other religious truth can be determined using reason and observation of the natural world alone, without the need for faith. Deists generally reject the notion of divine interventions in human affairs - such as by miracles and revelations. These views contrast with a dependence on revelations, miracles, and faith found in many Judeo-Christian,[1][2] Islamic and other theistic teachings.

    How does belief in a SUPREME GOD correlate to Atheism. Furthermore with out going in depth I can tell you Freemasons are not Deist, its only wishful thinking of antireligious zealots.

    Now...I know you can do this...search for Founding Fathers and Deists and see what comes up. Doesn't sound much like Protestant to me, since they reject prophets, the bible, and other revelations.

    For a Christian, you are getting a lot of glee out of being a prick.

    No, the founding fathers of the United States were by and large Deists. In fact, Thomas Jefferson removed all claims of Jesus' divinity from the bible, truncated the canonical works he felt most relevant, and removed all supernatural goings on. The book was titled, "Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth", IIRC. Jefferson did so as he saw the doctrine, religion, and church structure of his day as a path of oppression, and a means of subjugation. Really, Jefferson and the other founding fathers saw the supernatural tint of of bible as frivolous - and this is especially prevalent in that none of Jesus' miracles, neither his prophecy or resurrection are mentioned in this book. Why, though? Because the moral take-home from the bible is valid as a code of ethic sans sanctification; it is nothing more-or-less than common sense: "be nice, don't lie, don't steal". In reality, these are all things more or less imperative to the proper functioning of any group of pack animals, and are valid as nothing more than that. Aside from dominance displays, you really do not see animals in the same pack thieving food from each other and/or killing each other unnecessarily. These are things necessary to the survival of a pack. Over time, silly books and god-heads have been accredited for their creation.

  6. Deism is better defined as a belief in a supreme "being" that set the universe in motion and has been hands off ever since. That "being" may or may not have any resemblance to the Judeo-Christian "God" as we know it, depending on the view holder. Rather, it simply acknowledges a higher power made the universe and said higher power does not give a rat's ass about either Jesus or Brittany Spears.

    Not an expert on Deism, but I can certainly discern one. dsade made the comment many of the founding fathers were deist, and I gave evidence for that claim. Have you given evidence against it?

  10. dsade made the statement that the Freemasons were Deist in the context that FreeMasons Believe in a supreme being this is correct but I fear that dsade tends to think of FreeMasons as believing in a God that doesnt have any relation to a Judeo Christian God and this is incorrect. I did look up the different definitions of Deist on the internet and some of definitions are correct when speaking of Masons some are incorrect and I know from the authors they are not Masons as I know dsade is not a Mason , how do I know because I am a FreeMason 32 degree so I tend to think I know more about the Guild than the Profane. Will I go into anyother details I think not but here are some numbers I dug up on the internet for you concerning FreeMasons and the Founding Fathers of America 1. Generals in the Continental Army 33 were FreeMasons.
    2. signers of the Constitution 13
    3. signers of the Declaration of independence 9
    Let me add that the movers and shakers of that time period were FreeMasons i.E. George Washington
    Benjamin Franklin
    John Hancock
    many of the early and late presidents were FreeMasons

    The Bottom line is Masons are deeply religious men and set the foundation for the country I am from, America and not one of them is an atheist and all of them believe in the principles and ethics of the bible. If you dont like the truth or the foundational principles my country was based on you can always move to some communist country or some semi communist state like california just joking for those that dont have sense of humor anyway I am finished here I leave you with the moral compass of desade who I find amusing at times but I dont take seriously.
