Thomas Edison was heavily influenced by [[Thomas Paine]]'s ''Age of Reason,'' and can be considered an adherent of Deism.
Remarks made Late in life Thomas Edison was heavily influenced by Edison [[Thomas Paine]]'s ''Age of Reason,'' but despite attempts to describe him as an atheist he remained a believer in advocacy of Deism;"Nature is what we know. We do not know God and rejected claims to the gods of religionscontrary. And nature  Little is not kind, or merciful, or loving. If God made me -- known about the fabled God religious beliefs of the three qualities of which I spoke: mercyyoung Thomas Edison, kindness, love -- He also made the fish I catch and eatwhen he was most productive. And where do His mercy, kindness, and love for that fish come in? No; nature made us -- nature did it all -- not the gods of the religions"
