A. The Meaning of the Word “Deism”

Question 4

Who Corrupted the Term “Deism”?

Atheists, agnostics, and skeptics are at fault. Among historical figures, David Hume is a good example. His essay “On Suicide” is a short work that encapsulates many of the fabrications that have been foisted on our Founders and Framers. Today most everyone believes that the American Founders viewed God as a Deity who takes no interest in the world. This is false.
