The conventional definition of God is inaccurate and grossly outdated. It is an archetype from an era where humanity feared what we did not understand. At the time, the human race had no means to eliminate the unknown, so we created Gods. Over time, the plural was reduced to the singular, omniscient and omnipotent form most commonly accepted today. To believe in this man-made creation today is to lack a sufficient set of reasoning skills, a basic understanding, and a curiosity of the universe we exist in.
God is not a magical being. Things that were once deemed or considered to be magic have been explained by science. Things that appear to be magic still will eventually be explained by science. If creationism were true, it was done with science by a being or beings that possessed an understanding of the sciences that we have yet to dream of. If we were to define God as being the underlying connection of the universe that we have yet to understand (see quantum mechanics), then that might be a more accurate description.
The fact of a God having to use the same principles of science as we do, as well as the ones we have yet to discover, would make us equals would it not? Just because someone else knows more than you does not make them more superior to you. Would you bow to them just because they seemingly know more? When you possess the same amount of potential in time?
Religion spends so much time trying to define God in human-like terms so that it can be more relatable. Its like a children’s story, but for those who refuse to grow up. These man-made limitations keep us from ever being able to accurately describe such a concept. Why would such a complex entity care about who you slept with, how much you drank, that you committed whatever crimes, and that your sincere apology is necessary in order to further validate God’s existence?
The man-made God is quickly becoming an endangered species now. As each day passes by, more people are realizing how juvenile and underdeveloped the idea is. As long as we continue to limit the term “God” by our humanistic terms, we will never gain a sufficient understanding of the universe around us. There is something more to this universe, I will admit, but it is not God by your definition…
