God is an idea that religious people have.

@contrex,
A valid, albeit extraoridinarily narrow view. Many make use of god/s without any need for religion. Come to think of it, that works the other way around too.

I would generally define god as hope in faith. Or something.

That's a contradiction, isn't it? Belief in "God" is itself religious. By definition. "Hope in faith" is something different.

@peter jeffrey cobb,
Well I suppose its only fair to post my defenition of God too Smile Evrey time we had something we could not explain we call it a god. God of thunder. God of love sun God. God of all creation. Well right now we are running out of unexplained things But one major one that sticks out in my mind. We dont have a name to my knoledge yet for what was the mass that the big bang came from soo heck why not. Ill call it God. And from God evreything we aware of. So to me God is evreything and evreything is God. Does that sort of make sense?

Confused

A god is defined as a being of supernatural origin and typically imbued with the ability to manipulate all or some part of nature. Typically it's physical form is human. This separates it from other supernatural beings whose physical form might resemble one or multiple animals. Gods typically exhibit interest in the activities of humans exclusively.

@peter jeffrey cobb,
Very Happy

ok... I don't consider myself a theist so my definition of god is going to be different than one that comes from a theist or even an atheist. To me god is the inherent goodness in each of us. The collective gathering of all those cartoonish figures of the guys in angle costumes sitting on our right shoulders. The devil is just the opposite -- it the inherent nature that each of us carry with the potential to do evil. It's the collection of all of those devilish cartoon characters sitting on our left shoulder.

You could say that I believe in god and the devil, but not as some supernatural force, but as that portion of each of us that has the propensity towards good and/or evil. In other words, we don't come from a god; god comes from us.
