Now that’s very true. Deism as a basically all-American philosophy – our secular religion as it were – has a vague, absentee-father god which is imbued in our founding papers and I think is one of its strengths.
From the time I was little, I knew to be VERY WARY of anybody who claims to “speak for God”. They almost assuredly don’t.
The “religious nones” as a category has been a subject of study for decades, where deism, agnosticism, atheism, skepticism, “don’t particularly care either way”, all are put together, even though within there are differences.
