I don't think there is a god in the classical sense, however what is, is a system of nature, the laws of creation in which we all live and grow. It is a system that is so perfect in its imperfection that it is self-regulating its own development and the development of every instance it holds, be it matter, living beings, planets. And this development only occurs if there is some suffering involved, especially in the first few stages of aquiring wisdom which eventually leads to spiritual enlightment. It is indeed a benevolent system if we all understand this, and that sometimes in order to develop thoroughly and perfectly a certain chain of sometimes not so pleasant events just have to happen - this is also the reason why there is evil in this world: we must learn to get it under control in such way all beings benefit to it, solve the problems in order to become a better mankind, till we have reached a state were no suffering is required anymore in order to develop further - recognize and acknowledge this wisdom in order to walk in the eternal love of the universe that is available for each one of us.
There is indeed something that is god like, but it surely isn't a single person in the sky. Religion has tried to describe this god like system, but their books were misinterpreted, mistranslated, partly rewritten to fit a ruler's needs, who also liked to be displayed as gods - all of which are things that concealed the truth that we live in this wonderful existance, which was made for us to grow in love, if we only appropriately behave and respond to it.
