The creator of everything, not separate from it but with it and at the heart of it.
Compare it to a molecule of water which is no different than the ocean it was created in except for its individuality. God is the ocean of all consciousness and we are parts of the consciousness.
When the battle is lost for the creating deity to have an existence, theists take one of two exits:
1. “God is undetectable because he is outside space and time.”
2. “God is everything and in everything and about everything.”
Both are meaningless. (i) No one knows what 1. means and (ii) even if there as any truth in this, a being “outside space and time” could not affect us who are “within space and time.” (iii) it is a bald statement and can be dismissed without evidence.
The second (i) is simply redefining “everything” and is no more sensible than saying “Love is in trees.” -> where’s your logic, where’s any evidence? (ii)Fails on the 'which came first?' test: God who is everything or everything into which god inserted himself? (iii) it is a bald statement and can be dismissed without evidence.
If you say "God came first." the questions arise, "Where was he before and why did He feel it necessary to leave? And how do you know?" If you say "everything existed and God inserted himself into it." Then, "How do you know? and "He is not a creator."
