Pantheism is often been described as being a synonymous euphemism for atheism (since the big ‘bad’ “A” word carries so much social stigma across the world that the term “pantheism” substituted makes disbelief in a personal god sound a bit more mild). But why then are New Age religions decribed as being somewhat pantheistic. A pantheistic “god” could be envisioned as being sort of of an “essence” type whereas a theistic god is an anthropomorphic guy-in the-sky deity which the Abrahamic religions believe in).
Pantheism is an “ism” with “the” in it but no negation. A slippery slope to the sin of idolatry! Consider the “pan” and recall monotheism. Bingo—all is one in the Absolute. Hegel. Philosophy sublates religion. Invert the idealism—Marx. Apply the result—Lenin. Follow through—Mao Zedong. Take away the number you first thought of—Communism minus the Absolute equals get rich quick.
Where does that leave pantheism? As the Esperanto of religions. Where does that leave getting rich? Well, money talks louder than Esperanto speakers.
