Similar to the 'cosmological supergod' concept that began evolving 
from the time of King Solomon in the Old Testament, except perhaps 
for the expansion part.  The Christians and biblical Jews had 
adopted a slightly lesser god concept than the one that you present 
here when they declared their god to be omnisicent, omnipotent and 

However, I personally regard this not so much as a god concept, but 
instread a 'multiverse' concept.  Namely, I believe that 
the 'multiverse' itself has the same qualities which you present, a 
living organism in and of itself, yet I do not call it a god, nor do 
I worship the 'multiverse'.  Nor do I believe that we can 
qualitatively 'know' the 'multiverse' much beyond the abstract 
mathematical calculation that you've presented.

Not even all Christians believe in a separate god as you suggest.  
Some do and some don't.  The god concept that you've extrapolated 
from is largely borrowed from the Christians, with various 
modifications made for perhaps scientific value.

I believe that you're putting agnosticism into a box.  There are 
several strains of agnosticism.

I believe that Jesus is a perfected human being, with the same

A common assertion made among Christians themselves concerning 
atheists, which atheists nonetheless deny.

Modernized Christianity teaches the omniscience, omnipotence and 
omnipresence of the Trinity in it's orthodox textbooks at it's 
mainstream seminaries.  The concept of omnipresence does not imply 
separateness.  Some Christian god concepts are more evolved than 
others and some less than others.  Variations of god concept 
presentations may occur if presented by educated seminary scholars 
versus street corner lay-evangelists.
