An unspecified belief in an undetermined transcendent force.
Ietsism is a Dutch term for a range of beliefs held by people who, on believe that “there must be something undefined beyond the material and that which can be known or can be proven”, but on the other hand do not necessarily accept or subscribe to the established belief system, theology or view of the nature of a God offered by any particular religion.
The name derives from the Dutch equivalent of the question: “Do you believe in the conventional ‘Christian’ God?”, a typical ietsist answer being “No, but there must be something”, “something” being iets in Dutch.
