Your god is Science since you allude to Science as the final authority by which any discovery must be weighed and measured and judged. Science is the summation of Man's Knowledge of the physical universe so your god is Man who is also according to your scheme of things a creation of your god. This is a very accurate description that you have given of Self since Man may indeed be his own god made in his own image.
Therefore to truly know YOUR god you would have to know YOUR Self. If you continue down this particular path then one day you will eventually delineate your god, your Self, to your own satisfaction. It is once again my guess that your final discovery may not be entirely to your liking.
In this case you may decide to recreate your Self or improve on your Self and you will find many many helpers in this endeavour eager to enrol you in their own pet projects of Self Creation, Self Esteem Building, Self Image Improvement and goodness knows what else. You may even decide that your own techniques of Self Creation are well worth marketing and enter that field yourself.
Do not imagine that this will ever bring you one step closer to the God who really did create the universe and everything in it.
There are three other questions that should be asked that will help in this quest.
1. Is God a Person in the sense of a feeling, thinking, acting entity with whom one could have a relationship?
2. Is God good?
2. Has God revealed Himself/Herself/Itself to humanity at any time in any place to any one person or one people and given us a description of who He/She/It is?
"Jesus answered them: 'Truly, truly, I say to you, everyone who commits sin is a slave to sin. The slave does not remain in the house forever; the son remains forever. So if the Son sets you free, you will be free indeed.'" (John 8:34-36)
