Well, you are once again either deliberately misunderstanding posts or simply unable to grasp how words work.Now this is your definition of a god? You are sure? Absolutely sure? Take a minute and chew it over because at other times you also threw in other qualifiers like they think the god will kill them all if they don't worship or that a religion must be created around said god.
The definition I gave is the same definition I gave six months ago and a hundred times in between.
It contains the word "require". Certainly, at some point in the last half a year, the discussion on one of the two threads has addressed that word.
What does it mean to "require" worship?
In the case of the Old Testament is apparently means: "Do it or my followers will murder you and everyone you know."
Alternately, in some other religion, it could mean: "This god will shrivel and die if they don't get enough worship."
I don't know of any examples of the second one, but the first one is, unfortunately, quite common.
As for a religion centering around a god, that's a discussion of a definition of a religion more than a discussion of a definition for a god.
Saying that a wheel surrounds an axle isn't redefining axle. It's describing "wheel".
My definition has not changed.So before I go any further I am giving you another chance to change add or subtract something from your hand picked definition.
Do you have an alternate definition that you would like to suggest?
Or are you so obsessed with me that you can't think for yourself and must rely on the thousands of posts you've apparently printed out and pored over during the months you were off linking your wounds.
As I said before: Find me an example of your claim.See I want to be sure this is the one solid definition you will stand by and not falter or change it up again as you go along like you did before with the killing and religion started around the so called god.
Show me where I've changed the definition.
You're the expert in going back and re-reading my posts. Do it. Spend the next six weeks going back over both threads and find it.
Otherwise, you're just making this stuff up.
For the record, "My" definition is not _mine_. It's the definition from the dictionary. The technical wording is:Up there, are you totally sure this is what you want to stand on? Last chance before the fun starts :)
: a being or object believed to have more than natural attributes and powers and to require human worship
Now, I admit, I shortened "more than natural attributes and powers" to "supernatural powers" and I've been leaving off "human" in my repetitions because I feel that's sort of a given.
Again, do you have an alternate definition?
Didn't think so.
