Re: Your Interpretation of God
I view "God" not as a being that can be categorized as a being. I see it as the Creator in the sense of the Primary Mover. I believe that in the beginning, the darkness and all that is discussed that there was a force that took consciousness, and did so by proving sentience in the statement "I am."
I believe that the Creator then in that sentience began to create a realm for itself, a realm I believe to be Heaven, the center of which I recall being the Silver City. There is then a great list of things that went on as far as what I believe the Creator did, but that diverges from what the Creator is.
I like the theories of Hinduism into Brahman, that Brahman is everything and anything Brahman wishes to be. That Brahman is totally beyond our ability to comprehend, however when Brahman wishes to do things or accomplish tasks, he takes on different manifestations.
In this I find that the Creator has appeared and been perceived as many different things to many different people and groups and most likely even races and realms, one being seen through the eyes of thousands. We know that when we see something we do not understand, we naturally assign it the most likely explanation that we can fit.
Therefore I find that the Creator can be whatever the Creator chooses or sees as necessary for any purpose or whim, and that any manifestation is subject to the bias and perception of the onlooker, which may be flawed or biased.
The maximum effective range of an excuse is zero meters.
