    The computer system hypothesis means God's creation is in essence a program or a hologram of sorts, and as such, it could theoretically be hacked, hence the grand design of the matrix could be altered. As far as its relation to Pantheism goes, it would indeed mean that all of existence has its roots orginating from the same source, that being the mind of God, a pantheistic conception.

    So yes, I think your idea best fits the category of Pantheism.

    "computer system" is maybe the wrong term. I thought about something like a non-material power that is responsible for the universe as we know it today. The summary of all physical laws maybe. That's god to me and he's not like a human being with feelings and debilities. So, yes Pantheism seems to fit well.

    I put panentheist but it's the first time I've heard that term.

    I think God is the predescribed being, the experience before thought, the only truth.

    So I didn't pick pantheism because I do think our thoughts exist and therefore are part of the universe, though they're definitely not universal or godly.

    I believe God is a sad clown. It explains everything.

    It depends on which God.

    Is it the God Poseidon, or the God Zeus, or perhaps Brahma, or Allah, or Yahwah, or even the Trinity?

    The Ancient Greeks were the first to come to the conclusion that the Gods represented natural forces and so science was born.

    As far as religions go, I most strongly identify as Hindu. But I come from a Hindu tradition that believes that all sincerely followed paths seeking truth (including Atheism) lead eventually to God.

    I didn't know about the concept of God, until someone explained it to me when I was eight years old. I thought it was odd. I still find it hard to believe, but I don't really care about if God does or doesn't exist. I know that the idea of God is now very widespread and everyone has heard of it, but let's say we'd live in a world where this idea would only be known amongst religious people. In that case I'd be curious what adults who never heard about God would react like if someone explained it to them. I think the idea of God could only make sense if you grew up in an environment where many people believed in it.
