What (who if you insist) is God?
jpl: If I were to label my thoughts of ontology, epistemology, phenomenology, and a lot of other fancy terms in relation to the concept of a god, I'd have to say that it (this god concept) is beyond human concept, and that if it is ever to be known, it must be known within, subjectively. But this knowledge, if it exists, must be worked hard for to achieve. Of course, I don't know that this is possible.
I don't think this UNKNOWABLE is anything one can conceive unless it's possible to reach such a state of consciousness beyond description. In other words, if such a thing beyond our abilities to describe what might be called a god, this, I think, is something that must be worked for individually and realized only by the few who are working hard enough to subjectively experience it.
If such KNOWLEDGE exists, I think it must be experienced and cannot be described through any of our limitations. I certainly don't believe in an anthropomorphic god. We humans will never be able to describe the phenomenal cosmos, nor do we even comprehend what a cosmos is.
We will never know the farthest far, the smallest small, and any number of things that can fall under the category of ABSOLUTE REALITY. If some GRAND SOMETHING exists, I think it must be experienced only subjectively and pursued with the greatest of diligence. And who's to say whether it can be found?
If such a SOMETHING existed, I don't think it could ever be described. I think it could only be experienced.
