What is dualistic theism?
Most Christians believe that God has three aspects, God, Jesus, the Holy Spirit.
Descartes believed the self was dualistic
Theism is the belief in God. There are two main types: monotheism, which is the belief in one God, and polytheism, which is the belief is many gods. Christianity, Judaism, and… Islam are all examples of monotheism, while Hinduism is an example of polytheism. Another Answer (posted by AustralianAstronomer, 6th December 2009). Derived from the Greek words; theos (god) and theoi (gods). Theism can be defined as follows; Belief that there is a God, Belief that there are Gods, Godly. Theism can be subdivived into monotheism (belief that there is one God) or polytheism (belief that there is more than one God). There are also different conceptions of a God; theistic (a God that does intervene in the course of human affairs) or deistic (a God that does not intervene in the course of human affairs). A pantheistic God does manifest through every aspect of the universe as a conscious being (space, time, matter, energy, mass). Hence the term, "all is god, god is all". Contrary to popular belief, theism does not necessarily equate to religion. Buddhism, Jainism and Taoism are non-theistic religions. Furthermore, not all theists are affiliated with an organised religion.
Thales of Mileuts ~585 BC was a dualist. He taught his students of the phusis (one underlying element to everything). He believed the phusis was water. He believed in the mind… and the body (as well as physical matter) being separate entities.
Theism is a belief in a God or gods, who created and now control the universe and usually intercede in human affairs. When used in relationship with deism, it usually refers …to the Abrahamic religions (Judaism, Christianity and Islam). The concept of deism arose during the Enlightenment as a minimalist interpretation of Christianity, as attempts were made to establish a rational basis for faith. Because the concept of a God who intervenes in human affairs seems unsupportable, the notion developed of a creator God who, having created the world, took no further part in world affairs. Deism is thus a form of monotheism in which any notion of special revelation is impossible, and the nature of the god can only be known through reason and observation from nature. A deist rejects the miraculous and the claim to knowledge made for religious groups and texts. Several of the Founding Fathers of the United States appear to have been deists.
Monotheism, because they believe there is no other god but Allah Islam is considered monotheistic. Monotheism believes that there is one God- in the Muslim's case, they believ…e in Allah. Other monotheistic belief systems include Judaism and Christianity.
It's composed mainly of subsistence agriculture and cash production of basic commodities or industrial goods for the international market It's mainly composed of the exp…ort market. Importation of final products from international markets is rampant as the raw goods exported are imported in their final form e.g minerals and cash crops such tea,coffee The economy relies heavily on international borrowing as subsistence agriculture is not enough to supply money for development. Imbalance of trade is usually existence as imports are usually more than exports.
Dualistic thinking is a view about the relationship between mind and matter. It claims that neither the mind nor the body can be reduced to each other in any way.

Theism. The doctrine or belief in the existence of a God or gods. Mormonism, Catholicism. Both believe in the existence of God.
Ethical monotheism: belief in One God, giver of the Torah and its ethics and laws.
"Non dualistic thinking" is a contradiction in terms. Thinking, by its very nature, is dualistic. What is the meaning of "up" without the concept of "down?" How can we know "…black" without "white?" Thinking happens in the mental realm, which is firmly placed in the world of duality. The only way I know of to go beyond duality is by meditating. One strengthens one's awareness, so one can become a witness to thoughts, feelings, and physical sensations. I have been meditating for fifteen years, and I see that I cannot find the words to describe the conditions needed for existing beyond duality. I had better get back to meditating!
Existence, Humanity, Design, gives us Insight, and explains why all cultures belive in a supreme being. I am pretty sure Insight is right, but not positive
Theism is the belief in God, atheism is the absense of belief in God, so they are largely opposites. The only similarities is that they are both concepts associated with the p…hilosophy of religion.
Christianity, Hinduism and Islam
Judaism may be the only truly non-dualistic religion. Christianity and Islam claim to be monotheistic, but a majority of the teachings focus on the dualism of God/Satan or Jes…us/Satan. While Satan does figure into Jewish teachings, his nature is entirely different, serving god as a holy prosecutor, not as some rival trying to torment mankind. Other polytheistic religions aren't really dualism, more like a 16 way tug-of-war where a god can be good one day and evil the next, and so is technically a rejection of dualism as well.
Theism is a belief in some sort of god, whether it's the current one in fashion or of some other god. Atheism is not believing in any type of god period. As far as to whic…h is better, that is for one to decide personally. Will you feel emotionally comforted in believing in a god or are you strong enough to believe in yourself.
