Hartshorne identified pandeism as one of his many models of the possible nature of God, acknowledging that a God capable of change (as Hartshorne insisted God must be) is consistent with pandeism.
Others have specified that it is a concept distinct from pantheism, and have used it instead to describe a universe which combines elements of pantheism (for example, that God and the; universe are one) and deism (for example, that a creator God created a self-regulating universe, but subsequently ceased to actively intervene in its operations).

 Pandeism - Biocrawler   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-11-02)
Pandeism (or a Pandæan religion) was a term originally used by Godfrey Higgins, a historian of religions, [1] (http://burghwallis.com/village/articles/higgins.htm) to describe a religious society that he purported had existed from ancient times, and at one time had been known throughout the entire world.
While pantheism normally refers to one universal god, pandeism, as described by Higgins, refers to the worship of a family, a union, or a pantheon of gods which are collectively universal.
Pandeism is impersonal like in the present canvas, in which man, nature and word integrate themselves; whereas pantheism is a personal Christ-like experience of every day.

 Thelemapedia: The Encyclopedia of Thelema & Magick | Pandeism
The word "pandeism" comes from the Latin root 'pan' (meaning 'all') fused to the word deism, itself originally derived from the Latin deus, meaning God, but which was later adopted by the Deist movement, and came to have the meaning ascribed by its members.
Some people incorrectly use the term pandeism to describe a world in which all of the gods of the various world religions and mythologies are equally real, and coexist - a common fixture in certain role-playing games.
Pandeism can therefore be considered a subset of natural pantheism, with the distinction that pandeism necessarily encompasses the belief in a sentient God that existed before the formation of the universe.

Thus we come, finally and inevitably, to the philosophy of Pandeism, the child of Pantheism and Deism, a philosophy which recognizes that the mother of the Universe was the Universe, and that this mother ultimately died in order to give birth.
Pandeism, therefore, is a marriage of the fundamental aspects of these two concepts, and can best be described as a spiritual variation of deism.
Pandeism denies the atheist’s assertion that there is no divine spirituality in the Universe, nor has there ever been.

 Thelemapedia: The Encyclopedia of Thelema & Magick | Pantheism
The vast majority of persons who can be identified as "pantheistic" are of the classical variety (such as Hindus), while most persons who self-identify as "pantheist" alone (rather than as members of another religion) are of the naturalistic variety.
Pandeism combines the major elements of natural pantheism with deism (the concept that God created a self-regulating universe, and does not actively intervene in its operations).
The fundamental concept is that a single, omnipotent deity preceded the existence of the universe, that this deity envisioned or designed the universe with all of its physical attributes, and that this deity created the universe by completely incorporating itself into the material universe.

 Merriam-Webster's Open Dictionary
pandeism (noun) : a doctrine that views one God as the creative source of the universe, but denies the continued interference of the Creator with the laws of the universe based on the belief that God created the universe by becoming the universe, thus ceasing to act independently
Now AR [absolute perfection in some respects, relative perfection in all others] is equally far from either of these doctrines; thanks to its two-aspect view of God, it is able consistently to embrace all that is positive in either deism or pandeism.
The Big Bang fire may have been a sufficient beginning and end of the divine, the logos that contained all that was necessary to the plan of the universe—that would suffice for pandeism, for the pandeist god is the salmon god — it spawns and it dies.

Assuming these definitions of transcendence, immanence, and holism, we can say that Energy or Cosmic Force in Deism is transcendent, but is neither immanent nor holistic.
Thus we see that Energy or Cosmic Force in Pandeism is immanent and holistic, but it is not transcendent.

It seems to me you've defeated not only pandeism, but the existence of the universe itself.
No passage of time means that point of energy remains static in that state, forever unchanging, ergo there is no Big Bang and the universe does not exist.
Incidentally, that "creator-God" of pandeism is not necessarily a being of infinite power (merely of power over all that is, which is probably finite), nor must it have any discernable moral preferences, so it doesn't fall under contemporary definitions of God.

in fact this is a kind of PanDeism, which is yea on one and a half centuries old, although science is only beginning to get to the point where the component parts of the idea make sense...
PanDeism teaches that God created the Universe by putting everything that he was into the creation, leaving nothing of God (if some transcendent part had been left over, that would be PanenTheism or PanenDeism, depending on whether that transcendent remainder continued to intervene in the operation of the Universe).
There are some subtle variations on traditional PanDeism in the book - PanDeism identifies God's motivation as something more like the desire to experience existence as a Universe that would eventually teem with life capable of experiencing something that God could not-- failure; defeat; disappointment.
