That sounds about right. I can't for the press releases on the miracles they've created in genetic science.
Nobody censors what they agree with

If all the millions being pumped into genetic research don't add up to any bio-strategic advantage for the jews, we know that at least there will be a lot of very fat jew salaries being drawn.
Nobody gets paid to tell the truth.

What is a Deist?

Deism is a belief in a divine power and a form of unorganized religion. The first deist in England is often thought to be Lord Herbert of Cherbury, who in the 17th century, formulated that a supreme power, existed, should be worshipped, receive offerings of penance, and that a lasting kingdom existed after death. Lord Herbert however eschewed more organized forms of religion and instead relied on reason.

The early deist looked at foundational science and believed the miracles of this world could not have been created without a divine presence. Further deists had no difficulties believing the concept of evolution, since they did not rely on creation stories from major religions. In fact almost every deist embraces evolution wholeheartedly since it is considered a reasonable explanation for the way in which people came to be on the earth.

However, a deist does not believe that creation exists without intelligent design. The theory of intelligent design may not however be an adequate explanation for the deist. Some deists see their conception of a higher power as one that brought creation into being and has then taken a highly impersonal role in human affairs since. Others have a sense that a concept of God may occasionally produce miracles or work in small ways in people`s lives but that these works are not adequately understandable by reason.

In fact, one of the most difficult things to do is to define what a deist thinks, since the foundation of deism is a respect for a highly individualized view on a higher power. Individual views of a God are reasoned out, since almost all deists believe that reason is the greatest gift of the creator.

Deists have been highly influential in American politics, since many of the founding fathers of the US can be considered deists. These include Thomas Jefferson, Benjamin Franklin, and James Madison. Usually, George Washington is included in the list of deists.
