Pandeism: An Anthology presents the work of sixteen authors, new and old, examining the implications of the revolutionary evolutionary theological theory of Pandeism - the proposition that the Creator of our Universe created by becoming our Universe, and that this proposition can be demonstrated through the exercise of logic and reason.

These authors present a wide range of views originating from their varied experiences, from professional theologians and religious educators to lay philosophers with PhDs in the hard sciences. Collectively, these authors have assembled the most extensive examination of Pandeism put to print in over a hundred years.


I agree with the philosopher Gottfried Leibniz that God would have created the best possible world. Remember, God-Consciousness is doing this for His own purposes, just as we always do the best that we can for our own purposes and with the resources available to us. Since God-Consciousness had all possible resources, He would have created the best possible universe.

Looking around us, the universe does work pretty well. I would say it would be the ultimate arrogance to suggest anyone could do better. Sure, I agree, there are things we are not happy about, but I genuinely believe there is a very good reason for everything that happens in this universe. I would never dream of questioning what has happened, and what is happening in the world. I believe everything is in its right place, and everything is perfect just as it is.

God-Consciousness had the purpose of creating a universe that allowed Him to experience Himself. He, therefore, had to create the universe within Himself. As there was nowhere He was not, it would have been impossible for Him to do otherwise (assuming I can use the word impossible with regard to God!).

God’s Plan was the ultimate game. One could view it as a game where God-Consciousness split Himself into lots of tiny pieces, and chose to forget who or where He was, with the object of putting the jigsaw puzzle pieces back together again and then removing the blindfold and regaining His memory so He once more knew He was God-Consciousness. I realize that this sentence is complete nonsense as it sits here, but I suspect it does point to something like the Truth. These words may be written in a light and playful way, but there is real Truth behind them.
