We shall explore nature and the universe, by science, for all answers until science leads us, at last, to God.

I dislike the word GOD and all words used to identify universal omnipotence. Those who struggle to understand what is obvious try to explain with archaic stories. Some of these stories are more ridiculous than modern soap operas. In some there is wisdom, but all of these stories are open to selection and interpretation of self-serving readers and re-authors.
We are but a flame in an infinite mass of energy. When an individual flame is "spent" the chemistry of the physical residue is absorbed and reused into the surrounding environment. The warmth of the flame is not gone. It is simply transferred to another place or form in the infinite mass.
The answers are all around us. When there is an abundance of clover the rabbits proliferate in direct proportion. When the population of the rabbits exceeds the yield of clover that the soil can produce then the rabbit population suffers. They become weak, lethargic and easy prey to the fox. The fox proliferate until the lessened rabbit population can no longer support their numbers. Everything must balance or take time to be replenished.
All energy is dynamic and replenishing to its own diverse manifestations. If you need details then study science. Scientific writings, even if erroneous, have more value than the ancient fables because, they too, are changing. Written science is corrected as new things are learned. Interpretation is always open to argument.
To your original question I answer YES but with qualification. The qualification is that one must understand that God is not the fire-eyed Lord of the ancient fables but a Universal Omnipotence that is blatantly obvious to anyone who will simply look around themselves. This strength is within and around everything and everyone....and manifests ever so slight of a change with each pulse of every individual soul. And last, I blaspheme to the ancient fable subscribers; souls are not specific to mankind. If that, also, is not blatantly obvious then ancient fables are the limits of one's comprehension of their world.
Your answer is the closest to complete answer. What you refer to as universal omnipotence is what I would prefer to refer to as intrinsic nature of nature. When people refer to God and attributes of God, if we are willing to discount their errors and ignorance, than balance of convenience indicates that they are referring in fact to intrinsic nature of nature which is amenable to objectivity and rationality like any scientific concept.
It is difficult to detail it further on this forum but you can refer to some of my articles on this subject and it is best detailed in my book.
The need as this juncture being to precisely define intrinsic nature of nature and to explain universe and humanity as phenomena on its basis. This has been attempted in detail in my book.
Thank you, Mahesh Jain.
I am usually reluctant to discuss such things because two things almost always happen. First, the audience is threatened and the barriers go up immediately. Second, from behind the barriers, there is a frantic search through the volumes of ancient fables for a label to put onto me and a defense mechanism with which to neutralize me.
I thank you for the invitation to your articles and book and I may read some of them. However, I truly believe, as I mentioned above, that the answers are around and within us.
Whatever you say is correct and there exists sufficient evidence in its support.
I will take the liberty to suggest to you to read 3 of my articles about God and 1 about consciousness. I have kept them deliberately inconclusive and I think it will not be difficult for you to guess the reason for it. But still they are quite informative.
Regarding the audience, I think they prefer confused ambivalence to understanding but only as a measure of self-defense. I also face the same but it doesn't bother me much.
There is a name for __________ in the Kabbalah. They are afraid to name God, and so they use codes. YHVH and other appellations, but being human we do need writing and speaking and communicating and so, a name would be helpful. The one I have found powerful. It took my breath the first time I read it, because I was fraught with the linguistic challenge versus the ideational wall.
The "Causeless Cause". That puts Him/Her/It back on a powerful "throne". In back of all of our world of "causation" lies the one who had no cause, but causes it ALL. - GOD.
Very interesting concept. Very, very pure.
But too subjective!
These peoples were, 'afraid' to even name that "God", for a darn good reasons;the divine masquerade, by nefarious and often lethal creatures (mean-spirited UFO pilots who frequent today, as they did, then) could disguise everything but their true natures.

You have taken us to back to good old days when there was utter lack of scientific culture.
