No offense intended at all. But, I really am baffled by the reasoning for pantheism.
To me, the hypothesis of “the deity is the universe itself” is just as weak as any other hypothesis of deity(ies). No evidence to start with. It is a hypothesis that can never be proved or disproved so why do some accept it to be true?
We do not accept the hypothesis of the Celestial Teapot’s existence just because it has been hypothesized, do we?
