That is God viewed as the laws that govern the natural evolution of the universe. This is more a philosophy than a belief in a personal god. But this should help you feel more comfortable around us and talking with us.

I don't think most atheists believe in Spinoza's god.
If you mean that most atheists would accept that the concept of Spinoza's god is not entirely incoherent, then maybe.

Er... you realise this isn't gonna be hella comforting poking around here Wink

Our local Christian boyo KingsChosen has his own theory as to the purpose of prayer but it's... well I gotta warn you it's well and truly fucked up. (BTW you might need to wear a hard hat, there's loadsa swearing around here.) You might put the question to him in the Ask A Theist thread.

Honestly, I have enough theists in my life I can go to for questions. No worries about language there are times this momma swears like sailor. Angel

Ha!

I can't wait to poke around. I've been questioning a lot lately - my friends are all fairly bible literal -- Fairly meaning they don't really believe in slavery but will also tell you that the bible slavery didn't really mean slavery Wink

But they all believe our planet is 6000 (it seems to keep getting younger) years old, evolution and science are just ways of satan.

Thanks for the welcome,
on the fence

The Hofmannists among us may have different sacraments than you might be used to. But Welcome! Watch out for the concertina wire while you're sitting on the fence. Shit's razor sharp.
