Correct me if I'm wrong, but I believe that Calvinism deserves a mention here

And not just Christian viewpoints, but others if they could be added...

-edit- nevermind... determinism is mentioned and that links to Calvinism. I believe there should be more religions related but this is the wrong place to discuss...


Shouldn't "Deism" be above "God" on this page? Hyperbolick (talk) 21:25, 29 August 2019 (UTC)

Tone problem

There is a tone problem the way this article is written. There appears to be personal opinion sprinkled throughout the article. For example, "Locke's famous attack on innate ideas in the Essay effectively destroyed that foundation. After Locke, deists could no longer appeal to innate ideas as Herbert had done. Instead, deists were forced to turn to arguments based on experience and nature." I see no works cited to back this assertion up. What's famous about his attack? How is it that deists could no longer appeal to innate ideas? This is not a neutrally written resource article and should be changed to be more consistent to encyclopedia style writing. -- Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 19:47, 28 October 2019 (UTC)

Agreed. This article has a fair bit of hot garbage sprinkled on it. --DonkeyPunchResin (talk) 14:37, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

Rejects revelation as a source of religious knowledge

This is not the only, or even most prominent, definition of Deism and certainly the intro needs to be reworded. Deism is also, if not more commonly defined in terms of personal experience. As in people who have not experienced revelation but still believed in a Supreme Being as their reasoning indicated as much. Many would eschew rejecting revelation as it would involve zooming inside someone else's mind to know what they experienced. Last I checked we still hadn't mastered the zoomy mind thing. --DonkeyPunchResin (talk) 14:37, 11 April 2020 (UTC)

Hitler said many times he hated the atheists (Christians hate the atheists and without facts present him as atheist); at the end of his life in his private life he was negative against religion BUT NEVER AGAINST GOD, and he was a mysticist (all his symbols; naturalists don't oppose metaphysical naturalism)
