...have you read anything on panentheism?It depends on how one chooses to define God. If we're talking about some omnipresent being who lovingly handcrafted us, guides us and takes an interest in our well-being, I would have to say I'm an Atheist. I find the idea of some higher power watching over us from above, handing down rules and regulations, praise and condemnation as something that humans have conjured up as kind of a security blanket. We raise our children, we teach them and love them and we want, sometimes need, to believe that someone other than our own parents have our best interests at heart and love us as we love our kids. I think without that feeling of parental guidance and care humans feel lost and alone. I think that personal belief system also fills a need for us to somehow dodge responsibility for our own actions. Something good happens and we give thanks to God. Something bad happens and it's the work of the devil.
Now, if we're talking about God as simply the act of creation I would consider myself a Pantheist. I believe in the almighty molecule, the atom, the particle, the big bang. Can I prove that some anthropomorphic God didn't wave a magic wand around and trigger the birth of the universe? No, I can't. It's possible we're simply a product of a random roll of the dice. I can tell you that with two years of advanced physics under my belt I've felt closer to the concept of God in a classroom than I ever did in any church.
