I don't fundamentally agree with the Buddha's conclusions though, I think there is more to it than that, but not in the form of deities, more in the form of our personal energy bodies and fulfilling their existing potential. I reject accepting things as they are, I prefer striving to realise our potential.

You could also follow a distinction between a creator god and deities in general. From a spiritual perspective there is easily room for higher, powerful beings that may carry a 'god' or 'goddess' title, something that returns also in (some) Buddhist beliefs (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Buddhist_deities), but this is not the same as a ''creator God'', which is fundamental in Abrahamic religion and various Hindu beliefs.
