“Theologians sometimes suggest a reconciliation [between science and religion] by means of naturalistic deism, the idea that the creation of the universe (and perhaps the laws of physics) was the direct handiwork of a deity who then left things alone as they unfolded, never interfering in nature or history again. For the faithful, this has been even more problematic than pantheism: it not only denies miracles, virgin births, answered prayers, and the entire cosmological apparatus of Christianity, Judaism, Islam, Hinduism, and much of Buddhism, but also raises the question of where God came from in the first place.”
