I was just about to post something along them lines! In order to approach the notion of God scientifically, you must first define and agree on the attributes of God and then work from there!

For example most old books will gove these two definitions on God:

1) He is the Creator;
2) He is Eternal.

From these two definitions, for example, and classifying the universe as the Creation, we can deduce that the universe and God are not one and the same. This is what I conclude because the Universe is not Eternal (it was created at the Big Bang, therefore has a beginning), and something that did not exist previously cannot create itself spontaneously. Well I might be wrong but that is just an example!
