I've been reading a couple things regarding God that @fschmidt has posted about his Mikraite religion. He wrote " God is not necessarily viewed as a sentient being, but is viewed as the sum of all forces in the world." He also has a nice article on the way they interpret God in Mikraite: http://www.mikraite.org/God-for-Atheists-td18.html I remember how in many ancient religions, God or deities are sort of impersonations of nature. That makes me raise the question, is God basically everything that the individual isn't, and has no control over? Regardless of whether they imagine an actual being there, or just the sum of all natural forces?
