One who believes in a god, and there rests, not mixing the one article of his faith with articles of human invention.
If you really want to understand Deism, go read The Age of Reason, by Thomas Paine.

a person who accepts the belief in god,but does not believe in the religion.He/she has no understanding of being aethiest or religious,but believe in individualism.these type of people usually understand that believing in god completely is rhetorical because for an aethiest and a religious person,in the end neither have proof or a clear explanation on their strong grasp of the belief they so entrust on.
a person with a true mind of freedom is someone not many know a diest.

A Deist is a person who believs that God created the world. This person might or might not believe in evolution, but knows that God is behind it all and he's satisfied with that thought. He doesn't feel the need to follow a religion; Meaning: A Deist does not give a dime (for the lack of better word) who came fist, who came last, who was the son and who was the prophet, and especially who wrote what in which book. He respects these people and chooses not to talk or even think about them. He know's God is up there and as long as he doesn't steal, lie, and hurt other people he has no need for following religion.
i'm a deist, i know i'm not capable of seeing God and i don't even wanna see him, but i know he's there and watching over and once in a while i sit down and talk to him but he knows that i dont like reading brainwashing mind blowing time consuming religious books because i don't even know who wrote them when pen and pencil were barely invented, and he's totally fine with it. wish myspace had Deist as an option to your religion selection.

Additionally, being a deist, such as myself, one can believe that a higher power created the universe and that is all. The guy that posted something about how a higher power wouldn't have any dealings with humans was on the right track.
A deist is as close as you can get to athiesm and not be an athiest.

An atheist who believes in some god.
If you're agnostic or deist, if you believe in (the possibility of) some form of deity but don't let religion run your life, then you're practically an atheist.

A Deist is any person who believes that God created the universe and dissociated himself from it. They do not believe in divine intervention of in organized religion, such as church gatherings. Some do not believe that Jesus is the son of God, but merely a prophet; however they are still considered Christians, because they do believe somewhat in the Holy Bible. They also believe in the power of science, and if science and scripture contradict one another, they usually lean towards the science aspect because of factual data. The most notable Deist to date are Thomas Jefferson as well as other U.S. Founding Fathers, and rumored John Locke.
"I have never seen a church for Deist."
"And you never will."

"The United States Constitution is based on Holy scripture."
"Only if you consider logic and science a religion, because that is what our foundings fathers believed in."
