How do you define God?

God means different things to different people. He (or she, or it, or they) can be to some a symbol of divinity, to others a supreme being, and to others it is merely an illusion. To me, as a pantheist, God is the personification of reality. Reality is all-encompassing, all-powerful, and eternal - just as some religious groups define God. I find it personally moral to respect all interpretations of God and all religions (and lack thereof, whether or not they involve gods, goddesses, spirits, etc. I was curious as to how the majority of users here define God, so that I would know what to expect if I were to post here.

You can't really define "God" God means so many different things to so many people and religions. I voted symbol because I think he/she/it is the symbol that everyone prays to weather it be for help or just continuing to be happy.

To me "universe" comes closest to a label for the divine. My world view is probably best summed up by saying I am a Thelemic Witch. It's not the perfect descriptor, but it works. I embrace the believe that the divine is immanent in creation, and that there are a multitude of valid ways to perceive or approach that divinity.

He made everything everywhere. He is everywhere.
