From 2003 till 2007, Dynamic Deism was a vibrant, wonderful
community of seekers who believed, as Thomas Paine once said,
that "God Exists, and there it lies". The DD Community
grew to over 200 members, and had
wonderful theological exploration and seeking together.
Sadly, a number of factors conspired to its being
"officially" shut down in 2007, not the least of which being its
founder (David Pyle) moving on to a broader theological focus
than Deism. This is in some ways appropriate, as DD was
founded itself in the decline of the United Deist Church.
DD included many different parts, although the most vibrant
and active was the "Dynamic Deism Online Community and
Fellowship". This was an online discussion and community
forum for Deists to share not only theological reflection, but
also to share experiences about life as a Deist.
Some sections of that forum were private, and it would not be
appropriate to share them on the open web... but DD always had a
large amount of its discussion available for anyone to see.
Those sections have been preserved in the archive. The
sections that were private can still be accessed by those with
valid userid's and passwords from the old forum.
This is a closed archive forum. You cannot join if you
were not already a member before October of 2007. Legacy
members can still log in, see the "Fellowship" section, and even
continue to make changes and post. Sadly, due to
corruption in the membership files, we here at Celestial Lands
can not make any alterations to the forum structure.
was formerly known as the "Dynamic Deism Library", an online
collection of Deist and related works, has been expanded to
"Celestial Lands Library". Please visit it!
For Deists or DD Legacy members who are still interested in
Deism Bumperstickers, Deist coffeemugs, and Deism shirts to
spread the "Non-Prophet Religion"... you can still visit:
For all of you who participated in DD, especially those who
were members of the "Dynamic Deism Fellowship" I (David Pyle)
can not tell you how indebted I am to you. You helped me
grow theologically and spiritually, and much of whom I am today
as a minister grew from your encouragement and willingness to be
in relationship with me. To the Administrators,
Moderators, and other Leaders of DD, I am more grateful for your
time, talent, and advice over the years. You all have
amazing energy and wisdom, and I know you are moving on to
better and better works in this world.
Thank you all for everything...
