    Yes its too ambiguous, God could refer to anything, we should have a larger more specific slogan, 'Read Gods word the Bible daily'.

    Is the phrase, 'In God we trust', not intrinsically linked with Americas history?

    Robbie, I'm unsure of the motto's origin but it's the only one I've been aware of for a lifetime.
    A Ship's Motto that's generally applicable and memorable: "Not without strenuous effort".

    Note: Speaking of words, today I learned a new slang coined in 2013: "FOMO" Reveal Hidden Content
    Fear of missing out

    "Plebis a populo et pro populo."

    That's google translates version of...

    "Of the people, By the People, For the People."

    In Latin.

    Which, if you are going to have a motto on your currency, seems eminently
    more appropriate and fitting.

    Looking at a One Dollar Bill right now: print's too small for me to read the reverse side circular wording on the left around the One Eyed [Masonic?] Pyramid as well as wording at the right beneath the Eagle. Can you translate the two?

    Not being in America and not having a $ to hand I'm going to go with no.

    However you can do it yourself by going on the internets, Googling for a high-res image
    of the $ bill. and if wikipedia doesn't tell you what it says, google translate will.

    Then it is intrinsically tied to American history and it should therefore stay.

    Yes. It's a stupid motto even if a god did exist.

    It's a really bad motto for a country founded on a separation of church and state.

    It explicitly is endorsing monotheistic religion over anything and everything else.
    And implicitly endorsing Christianity over everything else.
