One idea of God


The world that most normal human beings/brains experience in a a world of limitless scope and  splendor functioning in accordance with countless immutable physical laws that are structured with meticulous mathematical precision.

Aside from these apparently objective features of which we have become aware, every spark of consciousness also experiences joy and sorrow, love and longing; is enriched by color, touched by beauty, ennobled by a sense of fairness and justice, and stirred by hope and imagination: none of which seems to have a physical basis beyond their link to the brain. There is much to marvel and wonder at all this that

In my limited framework of experience and understanding, God is the grand totality of it all and their unfathomable Single Ultimate Cause.

If others give this God forms and names, relate it to history and engage in veneration and worship, fasting and feasting, singing and chanting to honor their God, so be it. If some others feel there is no need for such an idea, so be it also.

As far as I am concerned, what really matters is not the particular visions of God that people have or the emptiness in the No-God notion, but how we treat one another as members of the human family.
