We are talking only of a Creator of all seen and unseen. We are not assigning this Creator any character or image beyond this.
Well shit, is there any other characteristic or image that you left out? "Creator of everything you can see and not see" pretty much covers it all.
This, however, does not prove that it only exists in the imagination of one or many.
It has to only exist in your imagination if you've never witnessed it and it is "unknowable". YOU (and other human beings) are the only one's assigning it it's characteristics, out of sheer imagination, then you make the claim that hey maybe we nailed it. You're taking guesses at best.
But a unicorn is a horse with a horn on it. It's NOT "anything you want it to be."
Love, honor, and humor are very real chemical reactions in your body that can be measured when experienced. The wordss we use are simply us giving those chemical reactions a name. But there is a clear distinction between love and hate, or funny and serious, honor and dishonor - they are NOT anything you want it to be.
Electron, love, honor, humor, are all things experienced by human beings be it by listening, looking at it, or having chemical reactions. God does not fit that bill.
God, as you describe it being "anything you want it to be" loses all meaning with that definition.
I'm not at all sure that it does make sense, but it's the best I can do.
Yeah but, what are you actually doing?
You said you believe god is the creator of everything, but you could be wrong. That means god might just be the creator of a few things, or nothing at all. Who knows? This whole train of thought falls apart.
You said god can be anything at all, but then claim you can't define it. That contradicts itself.
You claim god is unknowable yet, still call it a god by your definition. If it's "unknowable" then what are you even describing? Nothing really. Claiming both contradicts itself too.
I agree that it doesn't make much sense, but I don't think you've done anything other confuse us.
But jar, YOU are the only one here saying GOD is not God or god/s. You have clearly defined this word: GOD
You said GOD is the creator of everything - seen/unseen. That IS your definition.
And again I will point out the contradiction in that you also claim that GOD is unknowable, meaning, it is unknowable if GOD is different from God or god/s and if in fact GOD is the creator of all things.
You've done nothing here really, other than confuse terms and contradict yourself.
I believe I've been very consistent in saying that is simply my belief and NOT what GOD actually is.
I get that it's your belief, I wasn't trying to state otherwise. My point is that your belief contradicts itself and gets very confusing. Also, you define the term by saying GOD is different from God or god/s. You also define the term by saying GOD is unknowable.
I mean, how do you even know that? Well, because you are defining what GOD is. How else would you know so much about this unknowable GOD if you didn't?
When it comes to subjective beliefs, there is no absolute right or wrong involved.
I didn't bring up the right or wrong scenario, jar did. I'm just clearing up that fact that he hasn't presented anything that can be considered right or wrong. It's just a mess of words that can barely be understood, and clearly contradict themselves.
If you have a set of beliefs that you're trying to convey to someone at the very least they should make sense.
The answer is the difference between actually being the thing and simply being asserted to be the thing
But you are not showing the distinction between your method of arriving at your assertion: GOD and the method used to arrive at the other assertions: God, god/s - they are ALL human constructs and caricatures in an attempt to explain the unexplainable.
All the Gods and gods are just that, human attempts to explain the unexplainable.
But GOD, if GOD exists, would be the reality.
Maybe it's just me, but I don't get how you changing the way you spell GOD from God and gods makes any difference. You all arrive at your assertions in the same way, guessing.
Saying "GOD, if GOD exists, would be reality" is as meaningless as saying "God created everything we can see and not see."
