English citations of pandeism, Pandeism, pan-deism, and Pan-Deism

Belief in a God who is both pantheistic and deistic.[edit]

  • 2015, Douglas MacGowan, Mother Nature Network, What Is Deism?, May 21, 2015:
    Over time there have been other schools of thought formed under the umbrella of deism including Christian deism, belief in deistic principles coupled with the moral teachings of Jesus of Nazareth, and Pandeism, a belief that God became the entire universe and no longer exists as a separate being.
  • 2013, Raphael Lataster, There was no Jesus, there is no God: A Scholarly Examination of the Scientific, Historical, and Philosophical Evidence & Arguments for Monotheism, page 165.
    Deism might be superior in explaining why God has seemingly left us to our own devices and pantheism could be the more logical option as it fits well with the ontological argument's 'maximally-great entity' and doesn't rely on unproven concepts about 'nothing' (as in 'creation out of nothing'). A mixture of the two, pandeism, could be the most likely God-concept of all."
  • 2012, Donald L. Jackson, Religious Lies - Religious Truths: It's Time To Tell The Truth!, page 175:
    Charles Hartshorne introduced his process theology in the 1940s, in which he examined, and discarded pantheism, deism and pandeism in favor of panentheism, finding that such a doctrine contains all of deism and pandeism except their arbitrary negative aspects.
  • 2011, David Michael Wylie, Just Stewardship, p. 24.
    This is very different from pantheism and also very different from deism. Compare panentheism and pantheism, pandeism, panendeism. Read Acts 17:28.
  • 2010, Tristram Hunt, Marx's General: The Revolutionary Life of Friedrich Engels, page 43:
    What Engels particularly embraced in all of this was an idea of modern pantheism (or, rather, pandeism), a merging of divinity with progressing humanity, a happy dialectical synthesis that freed him from the fixed oppositions of the pietist ethos of devout longing and estrangement.
  • 2010, Charles Brough, The Last Civilization, p. 246:
    Deism and pan-deism, as well as agnosticism and atheism, are all Non-Theisms.
  • 2009, Sean F. Johnston, The History of Science: A Beginner's Guide, page 90:
    In its most abstract form, deism may not attempt to describe the characteristics of such a non-interventionist creator, or even that the universe is identical with God (a variant known as pandeism).
  • 2008, Charles Brough, Destiny and Civilization: The Evolutionary Explanation of Religion and History, p. 295:
    FREE THINKERS: all people whose beliefs regarding "spirits" are compatible with modern science. Deism, pan-deism, agnosticism and atheism are compatible; theism is not.
  • 2007, Alex Ashman, BBC News, Metaphysical Isms:
    Pandeism is the belief that a god gave up their status as a god to become the universe, and is thus based on the ideals of deism.
  • 2001, Jonathan v.d. Sluis, Consider Rejoining:
    Your ideas about how no outside source is able to influence the world are more in accordance with deism rather than theism, however. So how about the term pandeism to describe your position?
  • 1998, Scott Corey and Mary Foley, The 1979 Bombing/Ellul and TK's use of "Enoch":
    Quite possibly, but some sort of pan-deism, of the God-is-in-all-nature variety.
  • 1997, Pastor Bob Burridge, Theology Proper - Lesson 4: The Decrees of God:
    If God was the proximate cause of every act it would make all events to be "God in motion". That is nothing less than pantheism, or more exactly, pandeism. The Creator is distinct from his creation. The reality of secondary causes is what separates Christian theism from pandeism.
  • 1995, "Marine's Ballad Honors Soldiers, Trappist Monks", Albuquerque Journal, p. B-10:
    He describes his current spiritual position as pandeism or pan-en-deism, something very close to the Native American concept of the all- pervading Great Spirit.
  • 1993, Joseph Askew and Michael Friedman, Heinlein/Race:
    Heretical churches like the Fosterites, and pan-Deism? Could you please give me directions to this part of Middle America?
    I don't think [Heinlein] particularly likes these churches but it is not hard to find Churches who believe these sort of things in Middle America. Salt Lake City for instance. Pan-Deism I have to admit he worked on himself.
  • 1989, Hayden Carruth "Donald Hall's House of Virtue Built in the Woods and Fields of Time" in Liam Rector, ed., The Day I Was Older: On the Poetry of Donald Hall, p. 69:
    Perhaps we can say that the dominant cultural traits of any era are the diseases of the human spirit which must be accepted and transcended by the writers of that era if they are to succeed, e.g. Whitman's progressivism and optimism (with which he wrote the greatest elegy in American literature), Pope's rationalism and pan-deism (with which he wrote the greatest mock-epic in English literature), and Dante's Thomistic, not to say Gothic determinism (with which he wrote the greatest humane lyric of all time).
  • 1975, American Jewish Congress, Judaism: A Quarterly Journal of Jewish Life and Thought, p.41:
    Is Gordon a pan-deist, or a monotheist?
  • 1967, Francis E. Peters, Greek Philosophical Terms: A Historical Lexicon, p. 169:

  • 1941, Charles Hartshorne, Man's Vision of God and the Logic of Theism, p. 348:
    Just as [absolute perfection in some respects, relative perfection in all others] is the whole positive content of perfection, so CW, or the conception of the Creator-and-the-Whole-of-what-he-has-created as constituting one life, the super-whole which in its everlasting essence is uncreated (and does not necessitate just the parts which the whole has) but in its de facto concreteness is created - this panentheistic doctrine contains all of deism and pandeism except their arbitrary negations.
  • 1918, Yale University Sheffield Scientific School, Yale Sheffield Monthly, p. 463:
