Taoists believe Tao is a presence that existed before the universe was formed. They believe it continues to guide the world and everything in it, and sometimes identify it as the Mother, or source of all things. Unlike the Christian belief of one God who formed the universe, though, Taoism is not monotheistic and Tao is not a god or supreme being, it is a force and the ultimate reality. For more on Taoism, I would suggest a thorough internet search. It appears there are many conflicting views about Taoism and its affects on society.
