    God is a word. I think we can at least agree on that. The word God means something. I think we can agree on that. What the word God means is purely subjective so it is up to each of us to decide the best possible meaning for the word God.

    I am currently resonating with a type of meaning for God described on this Wiki page:

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Apophatic_theology

    The only reason I reference the page is because I know people are obsessed with who is saying something more than what is being said. This idea is not my creation but a way of interpreting the Holy Trinity. I like the way God is defined in this video.



    I like the way he describes how things return back to God like an electrical circuit.

    Are you suggesting semantic pareidolia idea for God. Meaning is in the mind of the beholder?

    "Buddhism suffers", great pun!!!

    I think many people idolize the words in the Bible without any regard to what the words actually mean.

    That is why the Deity was on display in its Temple.

    If Godhead is then "jealousy of impostors" would be defacto.

    God's mysterious existence is such an example.

    Can you guess [w/o my saying] Who is this with His woman?

    The epoch of Idols were a Western phenomena.

    And it became a bane of society for good reason.

    Is use is for meditation.

    Krishna and Radha, but she's not holding a flower, ... mmmh?

    Language creates things.
