"Nature" is a label we use to describe the material world as a whole.
The concept has been anthropomorphicized, but when a scientist uses the
term, they're usually referring to something non-sentient.
A "god" or the "God" refers to a superhuman being worshipped as having
supernatural powers or abilities (according to my pocket dictionary.)
This definition implies sentience.
