I suppose if you take god to mean "a convenient word to describe our puzzlement at what we don't see the reason for," then the wonders of the universe are truly, as you say, God.

The snag is, rather than a word to fill in the gaps in human knowledge, your God construct is developed into a sentient being that thinks and makes arbitrary decisions. That alone disassociates him with evolution.

That's before we note that evolution is an observable, measurable set of conclusions to a working hypothesis whereas religion is whatever suits your purpose for it to be.

Me? I couldn't ascribe wonders of the universe or dog shit to a man made convenience but others can. No matter, evolution suggests you or your descendants may soon.
