God gave us reason not religion…

The World Union of Deists (slogans: ‘God gave us reason not religion’ and ‘In nature’s God we trust’) define their beliefs as follows: ‘Deism is the recognition of a universal creative force greater than that demonstrated by mankind, supported by personal observation of laws and designs in nature and the universe, perpetuated and validated by the innate ability of human reason coupled with the rejection of claims made by individuals and organised religions of having received special divine revelation.’

Edgar Andrews, from Who Made God?, kindle location 1890
