Seems to me that since “God” is so poorly defined and basically anything to anyone - that its equally impossible to give a serious answer to the question. Or at least one ought to define God first before even raising it, then you’ll have something to play with.
Me, I’m fine with the notion of an unknowable God, something more, that’s beyond our reach and timeless.
Where people cross over into poison-KoolAid territory is when the presume their petty little human minds grasp the god security blanket by convincing themselves that they have a personal relation with a god who’s actively looking down on them and who’s all concerned about them and how much they worship their designated god of the universe.
The notion that dedicating your life to studying manmade scriptures (perhaps enlightened, perhaps just high, no matter, still self-obsessed human musings) will somehow get you closer to god, I find ludicrous, no matter how seriously these religious ‘scholars’ take themselves. All that study does is take people into their own human mindscape.
For me God is in her ongoing Creation, billions and billions of dynamic years unfolding one day at a time.
I’m convinced you’ll get closer to universal truths (and “god”) by spending your time simply absorbing the unfolding reality of nature, particularly in this age of fantastic scientific insights and visualizations. Of course, if you want to see our human god experiment gone horribly wrong, there’s always human history to learn about and weep. Consider today’s self-certain absolutists those god-fearing trumpkins with their wannabe totalitarian president whom they embrace with such self-created fear & hate driven passions that have totally unhinged them from recognizing fundamental physical reality.
