Pantheism is the belief that everything that exists is part of God. This makes it difficult to see how God exists as a separate entity. There are many different types of pantheism.
- Some types of pantheism see the natural universe as God and can be summarised as Atheism with a bit of reverence thrown in.
- Other types of pantheism believe that consciousness and/or other god-like qualities permeate the universe. This is Faith based and different from atheism, there is a further problem. Are the bad things in existence part of God? Is evil part of God?
