Basically, I see gods/goddesses as the energy of a thing. So if something is, then it has energy and that energy can change and grow and morph along with the world. I don't see the deities as being static because they are part of the world and the world isn't static.

Wow, this is an interesting thread! I agree with too much of the said above to quote all. I (also) see god/desses as energies who manifest/show themselves in nature and life. I believe (also) that They are THERE anyway but that we (humans) discover them, give them shape, form and (depending on the culture) varying mythology.
IMHO I believe that the "origanal" god/dess(-forms/types) are the same but they are perceived differently depending on where and when and then get given different names and "stories".

These are all very good points.

Thank you.  I had been thinking of some ideas along the lines of the original post for a while now.  So I was glad to see this thread and the very interesting discussion that it started.
