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 and prayers, 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 when you rigorously prove that god exists, it wouldn’t actually get you very far. It could be that your logical rules do not always stand the truth — that your system of logic is flawed. It could be that your premises are wrong. It could even be that the reality is not logically consistent. In the end, the only way to find out what is really going on is to observe the scheme of things. Logic can merely give you an idea where or how to look; and most logical arguments about god don’t even give substance to the assertion.

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 merely names a quality or idea. It's an idea or a thing that makes the people intoxicated through its 'middle course', or simply a creator of the unknown.

When any xyz brags he could get a job in NDTV/STAR easily without any source/reference, a highly egoistic person would bite that xyz will do it for he is god (according to believers, god is someone who knows everything and can do anything — one who has the solution to everything. So, xyz 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 (a thought or suggestion as to a possible course of action: they don’t think it’s a very good idea.

So, a god is :

1. the concept or mental impression : for instance, our toolbar that gives you the idea of how interesting a low-fat diet can be; or

-- an opinion or belief : nineteenth-century ideas about drinking; and
-- 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 an eternally existing pattern, in the Philosophy (of Platonic thought), of which individual things in any class are imperfect copies.

4 a concept of pure reason, in Kantian thought, which is not empirically based in experience.
