8.9 Pandeism

Pandeism combines deism with pantheism, the belief that the universe is identical to God. Pandeism holds that God was a conscious and sentient force or entity that designed and created the universe, which operates by mechanisms set forth in the creation. God thus became an unconscious and nonresponsive being by becoming the universe. Other than this distinction, and the possibility that the universe will one day return to the state of being God, pandeistic beliefs are identical to deistic ones.
