God is a noun



Different religions have very different ideas of what 'god' is like; they even disagree about basic issues such as how many gods there are, whether they're male or female, and so on. Even after centuries of effort, nobody has come up with a watertight logical proof of the existence of god. In spite of this, however, people often feel that they can logically prove that god exists.

Unfortunately, reality is not decided by logic. Even if you could rigorously prove that god exists, it wouldn't actually get you very far. It could be that your logical rules do not always preserve truth – that your system of logic is flawed. It could be that your premises are wrong. It could even be that reality is not logically consistent. In the end, the only way to find out what is really going on is to observe it. Logic can merely give you an idea where or how to look; and most logical arguments about god don't even perform that task.

Logic is a useful tool for analyzing data and inferring what is going on; but if logic and reality disagree, reality wins.

For me, god is a cynical noun – it's not a proper noun nor a common noun. It is also a simple noun which names a quality or idea. 

For example, take the adjective beautiful, place the word the in front of it like this, the beautiful and beautiful is no longer an adjective; it is now a noun. Example: "The beautiful is worthy of admiration".

Likewise, when
ABC brags he could get a job in NDTV/STAR easily without any source/reference, a highly egoistic person would bite that ABC will do it for he is god (according to believers, god is someone who knows everything – one who has the solution to everything. So, ABC is someone who acts like a god, though he may be the biggest moron in this world.) in short, god is a word to name a quality (distinctive attribute or characteristic possessed by someone or something) or an idea (1.  a thought or suggestion as to a possible course of action : they don't think it's a very good idea.

• a concept or mental impression : our menu list will give you some idea of how interesting a low-fat diet can be.
• an opinion or belief : nineteenth-century ideas about drinking.
• a feeling that something is probable or possible : he had an idea that she must feel the same.
2 ( the idea) the aim or purpose : I took a job with the idea of getting some money together.
3 Philosophy (in Platonic thought) an eternally existing pattern of which individual things in any class are imperfect copies.
• (in Kantian thought) a concept of pure reason, not empirically based in experience.)
