Modern History of Sourcebook:
Thomas Paine:
Of the Religion of Deism Compared with the Christian Religion

This article concentrated on the reason given by the author that deism is some kind much more realistic to the human perception than other creed human already taken for a long time, or we can say 'official religion' for certain group of religious people. Logical terms that applied in the approach for the quest of reason make it argumentative enough and look completely make sense. Although human perception or the God gift of reason is not as close as it has to be evidence to the existence of God and or the chosen one. Point of interest of the text is the description of the weakness in the existence of miracle and as far as I see is the revelation that every man may have at the end of time. The author says that it is far too easy, it somehow illogical. In comparison to the reality that we usually talking about are, nothing is free in this world, at least you need to do a thing to get something, and something is not coming from nothing. Something should be a granted in order for human to get in to the heaven, if it is really exist. In the creed’s inconsistency, improbability and irrationality against the reason posses by the human minds the author make a distinct comparison to the Deism. Not to suppress one upon another religion but rather to be a comparison of the reason human possess versus the creed of religion should be placed it is the main purpose of it.
