    Neither. There is no evidence for deism nor theism.

    Now let's tell you a story about a man called Jesus:

    A god assaulted, by a proxy angel ?

    inseminated a 'virgin' named Mary,

    in order to bring his son incarnate into our world.

    A cowardly action… by any god…!

    Mary and her fiance ?,

    ….Joseph, had to travel to Bethlehem to register for the census.

    There Mary gave birth to a son of a 'god' ?

    a god put a star in the sky to guide people to the baby?

    In a dream god told Joseph to take his family to Egypt.

    Then this god stood by and watched as Herod killed thousands and thousands of babies in Israel

    in an attempt to kill Jesus. (wow!)

    As a man, god's son claimed that he was god incarnate: "I am the way, the truth and the life," he said.

    This man performed many 'miracles'. He healed lots of sick people. He turned water into wine. These miracles prove that he is god? Miracles??

    But he was eventually given the death sentence and killed by crucifixion.??

    His body was placed in a tomb.

    But three days later, the tomb was empty ?!

    And the man, alive once again but still with his wounds

    (so anyone who doubted could see them and touch them), appeared to many people in many places.

    Then he ascended into heaven and now sits at the right hand of his god the father almighty, never to be seen again.?

    Today you can have a personal relationship with the Lord Jesus. hahaha…

    You can pray to this man and he will answer your prayers.

    He will cure your diseases, rescue you from emergencies, help you make important business and family decisions, comfort you in times of worry and grief, etc.

    This man will also give you eternal life, and if you are good he has a place for you in heaven after you die.?

    The reason we know all this is because, after the man died, four people named Matthew, Mark, Luke and John wrote accounts of the man's life. Their written attestations are proof of the veracity of this story.

    This is the story of a Jesus. ""??

    Do you believe this story?

    You are Delusional !!

    However, …. any debate on this is useless,

    since a god

    needs to be proven – First.

    The evidence points to atheism! If one miracle claim is true…….then it’s cause is just unexplained. It’s doesn’t point to the existence of a God.

    Do you have any evidence that supports your deity is not imaginary? Were the Greek gods legend or real?

    Were the Egyptian gods real or legend?

    Were the Roman gods real or legend?

    Were the Aztec and Mayan and Hawaiian gods real or legend? How about the Norse gods… real or legend?

    The evidence points to our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ being the beloved Son of God, who came in the flesh most worthy, perfect and Holy, He was crucified on the cross for our sins and in glorious resurrection He rose again on the third day.
    The Spirit of Christ is alive and well.
    To those who believe are saved, transformed and justified by the blood of Christ.

    The Holy Bible is true and never ceases to amaze me, and many others. It provides life filled with a very real hope and we can be sure that the Lord is the good Shepherd.
    I am thankful for that.

    Peace to you all, keep the faith strong and well done for the great work in Christ. β€οΈπŸ™Œ

    Jesus is not God. God raised Jesus from the dead and put him (Jesus) at his own (God's) right hand. The Bible is clear on this. unfortunately trinitarians hate the truth and would rather love a lie.

    Acts 2:22-36
    22 β€œMen of Israel, listen to these words: Jesus the Nazarene, a man [r]attested to you by God with [s]miracles and wonders and [t]signs which God performed through Him in your midst, just as you yourselves knowβ€” 23 this Man, delivered over by the predetermined plan and foreknowledge of God, you nailed to a cross by the hands of [u]godless men and put Him to death. 24 [v]But God raised Him up again, putting an end to the [w]agony of death, since it was impossible for Him to be held [x]in its power. 25 For David says of Him,

    β€˜I saw the Lord always in my presence;

    For He is at my right hand, so that I will not be shaken.

    26 β€˜Therefore my heart was glad and my tongue exulted;

    Moreover my flesh also will live in hope;

    27 Because You will not abandon my soul to Hades,

    Nor [y]allow Your [z]Holy One to [aa]undergo decay.

    28 β€˜You have made known to me the ways of life;

    You will make me full of gladness with Your presence.’

    29 β€œ[ab]Brethren, I may confidently say to you regarding the patriarch David that he both died and was buried, and his tomb is [ac]with us to this day. 30 And so, because he was a prophet and knew that God had sworn to him with an oath to seat one [ad]of his descendants on his throne, 31 he looked ahead and spoke of the resurrection of [ae]the Christ, that He was neither abandoned to Hades, nor did His flesh [af]suffer decay. 32 This Jesus God raised up again, to which we are all witnesses. 33 Therefore having been exalted [ag]to the right hand of God, and having received from the Father the promise of the Holy Spirit, He has poured forth this which you both see and hear. 34 For it was not David who ascended into [ah]heaven, but he himself says:

    β€˜The Lord said to my Lord,

    β€œSit at My right hand,

    35 Until I make Your enemies a footstool for Your feet.”’

    36 Therefore let all the house of Israel know for certain that God has made Him both Lord and [ai]Christβ€”this Jesus whom you crucified.”

    There is no God in Deism, as in Theism,.There is only the first cause. You need the person and brain in this material world. how does it apply to the cause? The answer is, it does not. Deism does not deny spirituality. It could be or could not be present. Spiritual desists as myself believe in spirituality.

    The scriptures tells us that Jesus didn't do the miracles it was the Father through the man Jesus and the Father is who Resurrected His Son the Man Jesus. Stop teaching false truths of God.

    Neither. If god existed there would be no need to prove his existence. So it’s a clever trick to balance between two delusions and create a god like the Easter bunny or Father Christmas all in the mind of gullible devotees who are anxious to gobble up everything that can help them to believe in a celestial wizard.

    Atheists don't claim that the universe came out of nothing. That may be what Turek thinks the atheists are claiming, but he should listen more carefully.
    And if God exists, he didn't create anything from nothing (nothing is here to be understood as the philosophical notion), because He was there and so nothing wasn't there…
    And by the way, a deistic god could decide, when creating the universe, that this universe would be life-permiting.

    This segment is not really great πŸ™ I'm very disappointed.

    To take Dr. Turek's points one by one;
    1. The deity that created the universe does not need to be the same one as the one that created life.
    2a. Same for the morality we seem endowed with. There is no reason to assume that morality was created, or that it was created by the same deity that created the universe, or by the same deity that created life.
    2b. If the creator deity were a loving deity, it would not have created suffering.
    3. There is no logical connection between a possible creator deity and any assumed or believed miracle worker on earth, and we can think of a myriad different "spaceless, timeless, immaterial, powerful, personal, intelligent" causes in addition to Dr. Turek's favorite deity. Those ideas can only be linked by a leap of faith, or as it is better known; wishful thinking.
    4. As of this writing, not a single "spiritual experience, and miracle claim in the history of the world" has been proven to be true. As it is he who claims who must prove, not the other way around, this means there is no reason for anyone to be rationally convinced by any of these theistic claims.

    Most learned Atheists do respect fine tuning but at most say its T.Paines Deism. Deism is similar to God in Genesis saying "my spirit shall not always strive with man." whether it's disgust at sin or whatever, Deism needs to answer What did God find more interesting than earth? Is it Heaven? Jesus said May yr will be done on earth as it is done in Heaven" Im craving a ciggarette thinking about it.

    "if god wants to show his love, he must interact with humankind". but wouldn't that interfere with free will. also one could argue that you wouldn't know if its more moral to interfere vs not interfering
