Let's talk Deism

Though in present times, Deism isn't really looked at as a current "religion". However, when I first learned about last year in AP Euro, it totally hit all of my beliefs right on the dot. Many many influential people in history during the 17th and 18th century have claimed Deism.

From Wikipedia

Instead, deists hold that correct religious beliefs must be founded on human reason and observed features of the natural world, and that these sources reveal the existence of one God or supreme being.
So, anyone else out there consider themselves a Deist?

I don't consider myself a Deist, but I could easily be labeled one I think...

Im somewhat a Deist. More of a philosophy than a religion.
