The "God of dogmatic religion" only differs from a personal prime mover insofar as its ability to conform to change. More believers in a particular faith requires more dogma to maintain peace within said faith. After a brief bout of introspection, one person can modify his own model without damaging the underlying belief.

The problematic dogma in philosophy is, 'God is stuff is we cannot explain.'

Neil Peart said it best: the more we know about, the greater the unknown. Does this mean that every hole we 'fill' opens two more that we have not filled? Is this axiomatic support for God? When we explain a phenomenon, what holes are we filling? By what means can we establish the scope of one of these 'holes'? Did 'holes' slip in between electricity and magnetism when we unified these forces, or do we now see electromagnetism a single hole we filled many years ago?
