Doktor, I thought so.
Osso, thanks. It's my favorite utterance. After ma-ma and da-da.
Interesting that we contrast agnosticism and atheism to THEISM--the belief in a personal God who participates in humans' lives. We never make reference to DEISM--the belief (believe in by some founding fathers, e.g., Jefferson, Franklin and Paine) in a God who has made the world with its laws of self-maintenance and then retired to let it "evolve" on its own. This God has been referred to as a Deus Emeritus.
Deism is a subset of theism, is it not?
