Theistic naturalism is a belief orientation within the wider naturalistic worldview of the philosophy of Astronism and is affirmably upheld by the Millettarian Tradition which it has come to dominate. It states that there does not exist an afterlife of any kind for either sentient beings or non-sentient beings, thus it does not make a distinction between sentience and non-sentience, which does divert from some other beliefs held within the Millettarian Tradition.

However, theistic naturalism, as its name suggests, does continue to affirm the existence of an all-powerful creator God, usually referred to as The Divine within The Omnidoxy, and in most Millettic philosophical contexts. It is the belief within the theistic naturalist understanding that pre-Millettic religious and philosophical traditions have assumed that the existence of a creator God automatically suggests that its creations shall meet or otherwise hold direct interaction with their creator, however, this assumption is not held within this belief orientation.

Theistic naturalism, despite its belief in the existence of a God, should not be confused with the creation of a religious belief system. In alignment with the wider orientations of Astronism, theistic naturalism does not place any particular identity, system of worship, or role to God beyond that of its all-creativity. It is, therefore, in direct alignment with the approach of Astronism towards the identity of God which is characterised by a deeply set hesitancy.
