Does God determine the winner of the Superbowl?

Yes, from the perspective of Hinduism. Since everyone is God in Hinduism it follows that the team that is the most in touch with “themselves” as God, during the game will win. Even from the perspective of Western 17th century philosopher Benedict Spinoza the answer might also be yes. For Spinoza “nature” is God. Since man is also “nature” along with the rest of the material world it follows that “man is God”. God is present in and for both teams but the reason that Atlanta may win in 2017 is that the owner, coach & quarterback for New England are supporters of Donald Trump who is out of touch with God to an extent that the Patriots are at a disadvantage. How might we explain this theological dynamic? The Patriots as a team may not be enamored of President Trump but the influence of the 3 above mentioned key Patriot club  members can distort the presence of God in enough players that they’re not in a meditative zone that is amenable to acting out their role as God. The rejection to this way of understanding God’s role in sports is the result of a liberal mindset that buys into a sort of “fundamentalist progressivism”. When so-called progressives reject religious belief on the basis of an experience of demythologizing traditional religion the knee jerk reaction is to embrace Humanism. For example, when someone discovers the world isn’t only 6000 years old they then assume if the Bible is wrong about that then the Bible has lost all credibility and the rest of religion too.
