The belief that God (or some form of deity or divine creator) exists, but plays no interactive role in our day to day lives

The founding fathers of the United States were largely deists."

Yes,and they were largely slave owners.
Oh yeah,and they also sort of killed all the Indians and stole their land and also sort of started the KKK etc.
Then they just sort of blamed it all on Christianity.Nice guys.....

Wait,I meant that they were a bunch of dirty,lying,cocksucking faggots!

Deism is the world view that God created the universe but doesn't interact with it anymore. Unfortunately most deists are smug assholes and filled with the same kind of intolerance as atheist nuts. Contrary to the other definition here it's possible to be a deist and not be opposed to religion. It's also possible to be both a Christian, following the teachings of Christ and be a deist by believing that God either never did interact or stopped interacting.
Deism is the worldview that God created everything but doesn't interact with us.

The belief that the universe was not created by God, but by another omnipotent being of the same name.

blah blah blah

"god doesn't interfere with our daily lives blah blah blah, but he bestowes the gift of reason upon us which would be god interfering with us which according to deists and their high and mighty "reason" he doesn't do but they just said he does do it,blah blah blah"

And deists said that it's self evident that all men are created equal but deists owned slaves and considered them 3/5 human.

Some twisted fuckin "reason" there assholes.You enlightened beasts!
Bunch of self-serving bastards and rationalizing hypocrites!!!
