alex_antonin has an interesting take on Deism. I completely agree with this quote:

The problem with monotheists is that most of them are trying to turn what the others (in our collective) call "Source" into a personal Deity which is like bacteria praying for the sun to bring them a miracle. The sun doesn't even care about humans, why should it care about bacteria? Source is just too far beyond our level to be a personal Deity. If there *are* personal Gods, they are NOT the same as the one that made the Universe. Much like in Vodoun, where they believe in a distant impersonal Creator Deity, but pray to more personal Earth-bound Deities. Vodoun is like Deism crossed with polytheism.
