Astronism is a religion that is not necessitated on a belief in a God, or higher power deity that exacts a certain moral code. For this reason, Astronism can be described as non-theistic, in a similar yet distinct sense to Jainism and Buddhism, both of which are religions that do not necessarily deny the existence of God, but do not ascribe particular focus on the concept of God.
Essentially, in Astronism, the role of the concept of God is reduced in comparison to other religions which are likely described as theocentric, hence their focus is placed on God. Particularly, it is the source of spirituality that the worldview of the religion is derived, hence why Astronism is referred to as cosmocentric because it derives its spirituality from The Cosmos, or the astronomical world as it may also be referred to.
Despite this, there is a developed theology of Astronism that does explore questions about "the uncaused first cause". Astronist theology conceptualises God as something called The Divine which was discussed at length in the founding book of Astronism, the Omnidoxy.
