At Yahoo Answers I asked How would you define the word "god"?

Category: Society & Culture > Religion & Spirituality

Two dictionary definitions:

"the creator and ruler of the universe and source of all moral authority; the supreme being."

"a superhuman being or spirit worshiped as having power over nature or human fortunes; a deity."

My definition: A fairy with unlimited magical powers. It uses a magical wand to magically make solar systems and creatures out of nothing. It demands worship and it rewards the worshipers with a magical 2nd life. It's a fantasy for uneducated superstitious cowards.


A google search for "define god": Define god

Some of the best answers:

A very lucrative, tax free business.

I define "god" as the sum total of human ignorance, whether the honest or willful kind.

A man-made idea invented by highly superstitious people during the transformative Neolithic era when attention shifted from hunter/gatherer shamans to the celestial movements of the stars who became the new dieties responsible for the planting and harvest seasons.
