    Interesting! I had you pegged as a Catholic for whatever reason. Not that it matters, of course. I guess you just sound alot like some of my Irish Catholic cousins.

    Me.

    But seriously, it refers to whomever you want it to refer to. That's why they didn't make it specific.

    Actually, the paragraph before, which was in my opening post as well, does mention God...

    When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bonds which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.

    We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness...

    OK, but it still doesn't name a specific God. I think it was intentionally left open to interpretation. It can mean anything you want it to mean.
