I actually like Deism from the perspective that it doesn’t merely assume (as does hardcore materialism) that the unthinkable order of the universe is simply a product of serendipitous processes.
I understand that what I am about to say will not resonate well with you.
However, in my own “Panentheistic/Berkeleyanish” take on reality, I see the universe as being contained within - and constructed from - the mental fabric of a higher Being’s mind.
In which case, I find it exceedingly illogical to think that this Being would create something as amazing as this universe within the sovereign and subjective confines of its very own personal consciousness and then simply “abandon it” as is suggested in Deism.
For one thing, HOW would you abandon an aspect of your very own personal being?
And more importantly, WHY would you abandon it?
In other words, why would you not want to be involved in some way with your own creation as suggested in Theism?
We just need to weed-out and expel Theism’s absurd notions as to what God’s involvement in the universe actually entails.
