Mornin hog. It hurts...but congrats on a big win.
We've argued the existance of *God* to the max, to the point of getting kicked out of the political forum...and in the final analysis it comes down to a matter of SUBJECTIVE perspective. Preference, and choice, in effect. Stephen Hawking has come to believe such is the case. "Reality is subjective"; I heard him say it out of that little computer box.
The common perception of what the term *God* describes and means to religious individuals and groups, inclines most to perceive God as being separate...which would be philosophically/ spiritually and scientifically impossible. And certainly not what Hawking's concept would be. Any separation, I.e., limitation, would invalidate the very idea of God as being ALL powerful. Though it could grant particular *separation* in the creation of Individuals. Such separation would only be valid from the INDIVIDUAL'S pov.
The cliff note version would be that God is
the sum total of all energy, matter and...consciousness. You could say that those three are one (biblical Trinity?) with Energy being the Father, Matter being the Son (derived from Energy) and Consciousness, as conscious being relates to Intellect, being the Holy Spirit of Truth or the 'blueprint'.
The existence of Infinite 'quantities' (paradox, obviously) of those three...being conscious...would be as close as one could get to labeling *God*. Whatever that would be...it AINT a person, much less a human. Of course, not so for it's Son...Jesus; but that's only if you've bought in to that soul/evil/salvation paradigm. The alternative...would be matter mulch.
There is rationality, which relates to empircial reality and scientific evidence. There is irrationality, which contradicts rationality; of of the which would be delusional. And there is ARRATIONALITY, which takes into account and defines the spirit aspect (Consciousness, in all its potential forms, including Unlimited) of the SUBJECTIVE aspect of conscious being.
To take the leap of Faith (Arrationality) and do what is in effect, VALIDATE a basic conceptual potential...might seem 'delusional' or irrational...but so would a round Earth or the Theory of Relativity to them that don't see it.
Bottom line. To each their own. Like a buffet...explore, give it a whirl, take a shot, and if you like it, put in in your like/values column and it becomes YOUR reality.
Rant for the day. Good luck!
