Through the Gauntlet to Deism

As of late, I've become a Deist. Believing in God, but not the associated baggage.

I was baptized a Catholic. I was a Druid in College. Somehow or another I passed through Lutheran, Charismatic, and Puritanical Calvinist phases to arrive in the land of Deism.

Christopher Hitchens' God is Not Great: How Religion Poisons Everything and Thomas Paine's The Age of Reason convinced me that man and man-made religion get in the way of the work of God, which we can see all around us through nature. The Declaration of Independence calls it Nature's God.

Also I've been reading The Laughing Jesus by Timothy Freke and Peter Gandy, which has enlightened me as to the forged nature of the Bible.

Anyway, I feel compelled to share my quest for the Creator, with my blog The Deist Review, and to pursue happiness, while coming out of the gloom of judgmental man-made religion, which certainly does poison everything.
