Deism Overcomes Religious Violence and Makes a Meaningful Life

Deism Overcomes Religious Violence and Makes a Meaningful Life

Our WUD Deist Contact for Scotland, Linda, is an amazing and inspiring Deist. She and her husband were victims of the Islamic religious violence that unfolded in London, England on Thursday, July 7, 2005 via al Qaeda bombings of the London subway system and on a double-decker bus which have come to be known as the 7/7 bombings. Linda's husband  died from the religious inspired violence two months after sustaining his injuries. Linda was crippled and is now frequently confined to a wheelchair and in pain. The Islamic religious violence also caused her to miscarry her baby.

This horrific experience caused Linda to ask a lot of profound and important questions. Why did this happen to her and her husband and child? Where was God? Is the Quran, or any of the holy scriptures, God's word?

Thankfully, Linda discovered Deism while she was asking these and other very important questions. Her years of honest and objective asking of life's most basic and important questions has resulted in the edifying, powerful, thought provoking, enlightening and inspiring articles by Linda that are linked to below. Linda also was interviewed for our WUD Deism Podcasts which is also linked to below.

News of Interest to Deists
A recent survey on religion shows there are 34 million Americans who are classified as "Nones", that is they do not embrace any of the "revealed" religions and the vast majority of them are not Atheists. In actuality, the vast majority of the "Nones" are actually Deists!

The survey shows a giant step forward for Deism in the fact that it actually uses the word "Deist" and for the very significant raw numbers it shows as representing the number of people who are Deists.  In reality, the number of Deists is actually higher than the survey shows because the survey uses an outdated definition of Deist. For a more accurate definition please see our Deism Defined page.

Astronomers report a recent study strongly indicates the Universe is infinite.
One of the reasons the freethinker Giordano Bruno was tortured and murdered by being burned alive by the Catholic Church during the Inquisition was that he said the Universe is eternal and infinite which violates the superstitions in the Bible found in Genesis. This new study vindicates Bruno.

Does the Abraham Accord Promote Peace or a Plan For War? 
The Abraham Accord between Israel, the United Arab Emirates, Bahrain and the US seems to be more of a war plan against Iran than any kind of legitimate peace agreement.
