It can be argued either way. One can say "there is no God" because
there's no supreme "big daddy" looking over everything,
everywhere, because no matter how big you make a being there
are far bigger schemes of existence where he is a small fry.

On the other hand, one can argue that there's a transcendental
order behind the apparent randomness of external life, an order
that goes beyond the physical (and non-physical beings). This
Order makes itself known thought high spiritual beings that
cooperate with it, and is known under different names including
the Tao.

This Order goes beyond the manifest/unmanifest, chaos/cosmos,
physical/immaterial splits, and beyond any duality we may
experience in life.
