I don't know. But some people's conceptions of "God" (I'm tired of saying meme so much) seem to refer to this "mystery at the back of everything", rather than the vengeful Jehovah. I don't find this version of the "God" meme particularly harmful, that is, IN-AND-OF-ITSELF. (Obviously, this version of the meme COULD be attached to a lot of other harmful ideas in a particular belief system.)

Before I jumped in, a few people were trying to point out that not all religions are like "fundamental Christianity" while others were painting ALL religions as being totally (equally?) bad and harmful. I'm with the former set of people, trying to help the latter see that there are differences.
