** This often leads to the confusion as to whether persons such as Einstein and Sagan, who expressed high levels of respect and wonder for nature, should be considered pantheists. As RichardDawkins also expresses similar feelings regarding nature, it's entirely possible for one to feel about something as religious persons do about their faith without being religious.

* PiecesOfGod: Pretty much the trope namer, though the standard Pantheist will believe that the pieces are all that there ever was, and still constitute some degree of a whole
** {{Pandeism}} claims that God destroyed itself to become our Universe (tho this may be only temporary) - Pantheism claims that the pieces are all that ever was and ever will be.

'''Pantheism''' is a theological theory which equates God with the Universe. Often characterized as "Nature worship", it has been equally attacked by theists as being UsefulNotes/{{Atheism}} in disguise, and by atheists as being theism in disguise. Because of this ambiguity, it has also served as a label applied to many scientists of questionable religiousity, but who clearly had a spiritual reverence for energy and nature, such as AlbertEinstein and Carl Sagan. Many east Asian religions have strong Pantheistic leanings, with Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism all exhibiting substantial forms. Pantheist leanings appear in even the earliest texts of Buddhism and Hinduism, but the roots of the Western form are basically OlderThanSteam.

* [[strike:[[CallARabbitASmeerp Call Nature A God]]]][[ExactWords Call Nature God]]: One of the main criticisms against naturalistic pantheism, which is based on the belief that God is non-personal, non-sentient and in fact nothing but nature in the scientific sense.

*** According to WPM, if this is the case, the person is already a Pantheist, and simply does not acknowledge it. It is, of course, possible to treat Pantheism as religion, philosophy, or both, and there are many avowed Pantheists who are also Wiccans, Unitarian Universalists, etc.

* CessationOfExistence: Most monist physicalist, and many other Pantheists, agree that existence as an independent consciousness ends upon death, and that all parts return to the whole, though that whole can be anything from the physical universe to an over-soul.
