@peter jeffrey cobb,
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.
