I prolly shoulda started another thread, but i didn't...............Here goes............
At this point I believe that IF there is a God, then for us, God is unidentifiable and may not even be God in the sense that God has been defined in religion. The God of creation need not be all-powerful, just powerful enough to create a universe. God need not be all knowing, just possessing enough knowledge to create a universe. God need not be one, God would just need to be. God would need not the ability or desire to communicate with us, etc, etc, etc.
The point is that God, IF there is/are such, CANNOT be defined or described with any degree of accuracy.
If your referring to the definition of an external of the mind
god, then you've assessed well.
For the critical thinking and rational mind, if an abstract idea cannot be made manifest in our reality and especially if it cannot be defined coherently and supported empirically, then that idea is absurd and impossible to believe as true and possibly real.
You do understand however, and know wherein the problem lies, that millions of different gods do in fact exist, and are defined and described quite well, in the millions of minds that have their very own specific and personal beliefs in each and every one of these different gods that they've created. The problem ? This fact causes division, confusion, stifling, and strife in our world, as all of these different individuals different beliefs manifest themselves in their daily lives and then of course out into our societies.
Wouldn't an all powerful, all loving, and absolute deity who had compassion for, and comprehension of
, what its creation was going through and what it was fallaciously thinking about the supernatural, then enlighten them properly so as to avoid this confusion and bring about a unified system of proper belief in the one and only deity ?
You'd think so wouldn't you ? I would.
But such is not, and that possibility is out of the question because the existence of such an external of the mind god is out of the question based on the absurdity of the indescribable idea itself.
