Monodeism is a school of thought, is a philosophy of life, but it is not a faith. It is not a community group or church, has no prayers or rituals. We promote a monist concept of the Universe and deist, humanist values. The principles stated under are to express our views. Freethinking and not conformity is encouraged.
Monodeism is a blend of deism, monism, and humanism. We claim that the Universe is conscious is the first cause, is eternal, and infinite. All that exists in this immense Universe is interconnected and is part of the integral whole. ONE, a unique substance that is aware and has localized intelligence, is the building block of the Universe. From a subatomic particle to mega planets, all that exists is made of ONE. The Universe is self-regulating; hence no God is needed or has ever existed.
We do not accept claims that God, as commonly perceived, has revealed himself to some individuals. The only way to understand God/ONE is through human reasoning. So, we have concluded that the conscious Universe/God is the only Reality that exists.
We advance secular values. No cause is higher than service to humanity and doing good for goodness sake and not for rewards—equality and justice for all irrespective of race, gender, or faith—Separation of Church and State and fair distribution of wealth, is our message.
We are freethinkers, and we strive to control our destinies. We follow our conscience and do not live in fear of eternal retributions. We can contribute our time, energy, and resources to the causes we value most. We are guided by common sense, reason, and science.

If there are already so many deist groups, then why another one, MonoDeism. And how it differs from other deist groups or different modern philosophies like humanism or atheism. Let me say that deism gained popularity after the publication of Thomas Paine’s book ‘The Age of Reason’ in the late eighteenth century. Over time it has declined in popularity, partially under the organized church’s pressure and the introduction of other secular thoughts.
Currently, deism is divided into various groups, including Classic Deism, Church of Modern Deism, Positive Deism, Neo-Deism, Expanded Deism, Pandeism, and more. Some of them are unapologetically critical of revealed religions, while others are more tolerant of certain aspects of faiths, and some are just a reformed Christianity. All Deists believe in a creator God who is not as actively involved in world affairs as the supernatural God of the revealed religions is believed to be.
MonoDeism is different from other deist groups. We categorically reject the concept that God created the Universe. We are monist and more atheistic than any other deist group and claim that the Universe is uncreated and that creator God apart from the Universe never existed.
Leading schools of religious thought are polytheism, monotheism, pantheism, panentheism, and deism. Polytheists worship many gods. Monotheists worship only one God. Pantheists believe that God became the Universe, and Panentheists claim that the Universe is one part of God. Pandeism is closer to our view, yet it does not define God in monist substance terms.
All theistic schools of thought, including deism, believe that God created the Universe so, God is the first cause. MonoDeism fundamentally differs and claims that the Universe is the first cause. Hence no God created the Universe or is needed to manage it. God or Universe is the same.
Furthermore, we claim that a unique creative substance ONE, is the building block of all that exists in the Universe. That God is not a holy spirit but a conscious substance. We claim that everything starting from an atom or a cell to the infinite Universe is made of ONE. And everything at the micro-level is self-managing so, no God is needed or ever existed. MonoDeism is part of the progressive secular movement. It is somewhere in between deism and atheism.
The God we represent is not the God of Thomas Paine, Newton, or Darwin but the God of Spinoza and Einstein. The Universe and science as we understand it in the twenty-first century. We admit that no human philosophy or even science is perfect or permanent, and all must change with time. Laws of nature are constant, but human’s understanding of the laws of nature is not.
I establish this page to educate people on the concept of MonoDeism and its philosophy of life. I know numerous questions need answers. Your Questions and criticism are necessary for improvement and are appreciated. I am working on my next book, Conscious Universe, that I hope to publish soon. Thanks, please do not forget to like this page.
