Can you define God (the Judeo-Christian brand)?
- An anthropomorphized, jealous, petulant, violent, impotent, dishonest, and somewhat
clueless supernatural entity who created mankind for his pleasure, and dooms them to either
death (Old Testament) or eternal damnation (New Testament) whenever they get out of line.
- A myth. (Roger Andrews #1477)
- No, because "Judeo-Christian" implies a coherency between Jewish and Christian
conceptions of God that just doesn't exist, despite what members of the religious right
would like you to believe. (Natalie Ramsey #222)
- Non-existant. (Stoney #9)
- In most cases the reflection of the believer at hand, magnified somewhat.
(Therion Ware #422)
- The great psycholgical salve in the sky. The great conspirator. The great avenger. The
greatest lover. The great paradox. (Ciaran ONeill)
- Yes, but not so that any Judeo-Christian would approve.
There is no universal definition which would be recognized by all theists who claim to
believe in such a being. Even the Jews and the Christians, who supposedly believe in the
same god, can't agree on the number of constituent "persons". (Liz Huth #658)
'God' so to speak is the crutch of 33% of the world population. It is symbolic for the
ignorance that perpetuates like the worst thought contagion known to man. Only people who
are strong willed or lucky enough to not be born into such a disease escape it's grasps.
- Not precisely. Then again, I don't care. Let the theists sweat it out. (Chaos Theory #1354)
- Which book of the Babble should the definition come from? The hairy thunderer of Genesis,
who had sons, the burning bush of Exodus, who exposed himself only to Moses, the absent lord
of Kings and Chronicles, who didn't help at all, but always had (inconsistent) reasons for
everything happening, or the God of the NT who decided to change his mind about everything all
of a sudden?
Even today, we have the immutable god who changes all the time of the fundies, and the god who
didn't do all those things the Bible said he did of the Catholics.
Confuses me! (Scott Davidson #1045)
- I often wonder about this from people who do believe in god. They all seem to have these
personal, yet situational definitions of god. He's loving and kind when they want to praise
god or convince you of why you should believe. He turn's into this hateful, angry, tantrum
throwing god when it becomes clear that you won't.
For me, god is the excuse that people use to try to scare others into behaving as they want
them to and an easy answer for everything they don't understand. (ClayeSkye #$)
