I am sort of a pantheist (the idea that the Divine is immanent in the Universe), sort of an animist (the idea that everything has a soul), sort of a polymorphist (the idea that the Divine has one substance and many faces or forms).  All of which probably makes me a nondualist, too (I don't believe you can neatly divide the numinous up into good and evil).  I also think that the deity-forms we describe are our cultural overlays or interpretations of the encounters we have with the numinous, which probably doesn't have personality, unless it has emerged by social interaction with us.  And its agenda may not be the same as ours (see my suggestion for a polymorphist bus slogan).
