As Charles Peirce developed his pragmatic methodology and metaphysical cosmology, he also explored philosophical views about religion and God. Religion and science could be reconciled, he judged, if inquiries into God applied his scientific philosophy. Peirce died before clarifying what a Peircean God is like, but cooperation between theology, philosophy, and cosmology should pursue this effort. Core components of Peirce's system are used to formulate theistic, pantheistic, and panentheistic candidates for a Peircean God. These candidates are evaluated by the demands of his philosophical system, and then compared against contemporary science's understanding of the universe. Panentheism best fulfills Peircean expectations that God has complete creative and design control over the universe's entire development.
