God is a circle

I ran across this brillant quote:
"When science discovers the center of the universe, a lot of people will be surprised to learn that they are not it." —Bernard Bailey
God—in the ancient line from St. Augustine (or was it Voltaire or Timaeus of Locris?)—is a circle whose circumference is everywhere and whose center is nowhere.

But cosmologists now think the universe is like that, with no center, or with the center everywhere. So unfortunately it seems science has no defense against extreme egotism.

I wonder if Pastafarians, like Rastafarians, say we are all God? They could use cosmology to buttress their case and have a better shot at getting into school curriculums. Someday our children or grandchildren will be able to learn:
"God is two meatballs whose circumference is everywhere and which are surrounded by spaghetti."
