Definitions

from Wiktionary, Creative Commons Attribution/Share-Alike License

  • n. A coherent belief in a God who is both pantheistic and deistic, e.g. a God who designed the universe and then created it by becoming the universe, thus ceasing to act consciously with respect to the universe.
  • n. Worship which admits or tolerates favorable aspects of all religions; omnitheism.

Etymologies

A blend of pantheism and deism; or possibly from German Pandeismus or Italian pandeismo (Wiktionary)
