From The Collaborative International Dictionary of English v.0.48 :

  Deism \De"ism\ (d[=e]"[i^]z'm), n. [L. deus god: cf. F.
     d['e]isme. See Deity.]
     The doctrine or creed of a deist; the belief or system of
     those who acknowledge the existence of one God, but deny
     [1913 Webster]
     Note: Deism is the belief in natural religion only, or those
           truths, in doctrine and practice, which man is to
           discover by the light of reason, independent of any
           revelation from God. Hence, deism implies infidelity,
           or a disbelief in the divine origin of the Scriptures.
           [1913 Webster]

From WordNet (r) 3.0 (2006) :

      n 1: the form of theological rationalism that believes in God on
           the basis of reason without reference to revelation [syn:
           deism, free thought]
