self test A on the above            self test B on the above         


I rather tentatively believe in a God who might be called "The Creator of the Universe" or "The First Cause" and who may be the ultimate source of a creative dynamism ("vital spark"?) that seemingly energizes life.  Beyond that initial moment (which some link to "The Big Bang") I believe God does not interfere with the workings of the universe—which proceed according to physical laws. I believe humans' conception of God  can only be indirectly informed through observation and rational investigation of the natural world—not directly through divine revelation or mystical experience.       


I believe, not only did He create me, but that God is concerned with human beings personally.  I conceive  of Him as a personal being (perhaps a father) with a personality. I value talking with God through introspection / praying.  I believe God listens to prayers and watches over us. I believe that, given His personal interest in the world and its people, He will intervene on behalf of worshippers (performing miracles, etc) or to reward / punish. Some conceive of God in terms of forgiveness and love, others in terms of vengeful, judgmental punishment.
