Most people ask me to define God when I ask if they believe in God, so I'll define what I mean by God. Carl Sagan said he believed in God as in a higher power, meaning the laws of physics controlled him but he had no control over them. Hawking said he does not believe in a personal God but "the embodiment of the laws of physics", which sounds exactly like what Sagan meant. I do not mean this type of God. Creator: Do you believe a conscious being created the cosmos? If so, do you believe that same conscious is still conscious? Thanks for any insight!
