I'm a deist myself. I don't technically believe that there is a god that is actively doing things, or some overspanning entity that somehow controls everything.
I don't believe that things can be solved by praying, or anything like that.
Religion, in my opinion, is a way to explain things that cannot be explained otherwise, or is a way to make oneself feel better in times of adversity.
I cannot rationally state that there is no god whatsoever either though.
So, I'm a deist. I believe that there's something more, but if it's there, it's a very passive deity indeed.
Until it can be proven that there is nothing more, however, it would be irrational of me to exclude the possiblity.
