Enlightenment was a cultural movement of intellectuals in 18th century, first in Europe and later in the American colonies. Its purpose was to reform society using reason rather than tradition, faith and revelation. It promoted science and intellectual interchange and opposed superstition, intolerance and some abuses by church and state. Deism is the belief in a creator, but not revealed religion. Through reason and science we can explore the wonders of God's creation, but we cannot discover the whole truth of the Creator himself. It is within our ideals to be for the greater good, for progress and enlightenment, but not to judge others who have done us no wrong. There is no church. This is a place for higher learning and community through reverence of the natural world. Texans Seeking Enlightenment is meant to be a place where deists can get together to discuss their beliefs without judgement and build a community of like minded individuals.
