It Depends On Your Definitions Of 'God' And 'Cosmos'

Hi Mario,

If you define 'God' as the causal agent for the existence of the cosmos, then the two are logically distinct.

If you define 'cosmos' as all that exists and avoid the question of how it happened to "come into existence" then anything you might call God would be part of the cosmos by definition.

I don't think the definition of either term is the important or interesting thing; the interesting thing is the question of how did everything come into existence, regardless of how you name the various aspects of what exists.

Warm regards,

Paul
