Full disclosure: I am an atheist so I have not seen any argument for god as sufficient to “prove” the existence of what I would consider “god”.
The biggest problem I seem to run into when talking to other people about “god” is the inconsistent definition of this idea. I would like to put forth my definition about what a “god” has to be for me.
god: (n) a being which
- manifests in the physical world
- is omnipotent (all-powerful)
- is benevolent (good/just)
- is omniscient (all knowing
- requires acknowledgement
- grants life after death
What do you think of my “definition”? What needs to be changed for you? I will be doing a series defending my reasoning for this definition.
