      I sort of feel sorry for you. I mean, my last post should have shown you that you were misusing the word "strawman" and it appears you have not even looked it up to see what it means and how it is applied. Perhaps you have a learning disability?

      I've made it clear I don't go by the strict definition of Deism you provided. I actually did this in my first reply. Apparently you lack reading comprehension.

      As for sharing Scripture (Scripture that I affirm), I've done so plenty on this site(and in response to you as well). Your claim that I cannot is not only provably false but also ridiculous at face value. An Atheist could (and probably would) find at least some passages in the Bible with which he or she agreed with, and might even quote. Do you realize how stupid it sounds for someone to make the claim that anyone but a Christian by your definition can share (and affirm) ANYTHING that's included in the bible? Seriously?

      I already did. Any person (apparently, except you) reading my posts would know the difference, at least from my point of view.

      Again, you change the subject away from the original topic.
      Whether you like a verse or not is irrelevant. As you state...even Atheist's may like what a verse says.
      What doesn't change is the fact that God does not practically exist for either the Deist or the Atheist.
      For the Atheist, God does not exist. For the Deist, God originally created and then ceased to interact with creation. God practically doesn't exist. There is no difference in everyday function between an Atheist and a Deist. For both God is of no practical purpose and has never entered the world as a man to be a sacrifice for sin.
