Characteristics: People who practice Deism don't worship at all. Atheism, not believing in a God at all is the the opposite of Deism.
Significance: Since Deism is a very enlightened approach to a religion many of the believers are freethinkers. For example, many of the founding fathers were believers in Deism and that helped them successfully create the workings of the United States. There are many people who do practice Deism today and it is a belief system that affects how people think and live their lives.
