You arent messing around with these questions are you? I see the idea of God in the traditional sense depicted by most religions: a supreme being that created the universe and humans. I will take the Christian concept of God first. I have a hard time believing in the Christian/Islamic God (Jehova, Yaveh, Allah, etc) as a perfect, omnipotent all-knowing being due to the stories described in the scriptures. These stories depict a very human god - a jealous, egotistical (praise and adore ME), and often course-correcting God. First we try and eye-for-an-eye and then we scrap that and say love thy neighbor as you love thyself. When pairing that with seemingly no direct intervention from God for over a thousand years, it hardly seems like a perfect omnipotent being. The idea of God is a man-made construct, with scriptures as the only evidence. Since I struggle with the idea of the judeo-Christian concept of God, then what is God if it exists? Is it simply a creator that leaves its creations to their own devices? Or does it have an active hand in the lives of its creations? I dont believe in a benevolent God due to the history of strife and suffering humans have made for themselves. Maybe there is not God at all and we just need to explain our world and the things that happen to us, attributing negative events to something that is out of our hands. Is God our failure to take responsibility?

What are the great forces that created us? What is consciousness or "spirit"? How is the universe's intelligence different than human intelligence?

God or the God Concept is an innate part of who we are as human beings. It manifests itself in many different ways, but all of them address our biggest unanswered questions. 1. Purpose and Meaning 2. Love and Belonging 3. To Explain the Unknown and/or the Uncontrollable

Then that little man in black there, he says women can't have as much rights as men, 'cause Christ wasn't a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.

The wish to talk to God is absurd. We cannot talk to one we cannot comprehend - and we cannot comprehend God - we can only believe in Him. The uses of prayer are thus only subjective.

It's an idea that keeps me in check. As long as I believe that nothing is handed to me that I can't handle, then I believe that there is greater good. I believe in karma, and I think God has a lot to do with karma.

The word God is for me nothing more than the expression and product of human weaknesses, the Bible a collection of honorable, but still primitive legends which are nevertheless pretty childish. No interpretation no matter how subtle can change this.

To our dogs and cats, we are gods. We provide nourish, shelter, answer prayers, give rewards, make laws, etc. The first god was probably the first modern human, a genius mutant in a world of primitive apes who showed them the way YHWH.

The animal and then human intelligences were built through the process of the evolution. It is an awesome system, which we are trying to understand, often heroic and Divine. Gods are the parts of human mythology, therefore a part of human nature.
