Define "simply God" if you expect an answer.

because their delusions are slightly different from your own?

Let's see...

Christians claim that there is only one god, but that he's a trinity of father, son, and holy ghost (spirit). Ok, last I checked 1 =/= 3.

Said by the adherents of at least 1634 different religions.

Actually, I think you'll find that a lot of the major religions believe there's only one god. It's just theirs instead of yours. Understand that and there's hope for you.

I can't speak for anyone else but the FSM spoke to me personally during a dinner at the California Pizza Kitchen. He opened my mind up to a whole new world and he sounded a lot more fun than yours.

Seriously, there's HUNDREDS of religions out there. Why do you keep assuming yours is the only one??

Take a wild guess.

The same place people get the delusional idea of 'God' in the first place.

@Grigori: Really? I thought there were only 4 or 5 gods for which monotheism had been claimed (the Abrahamic Judeo-Christian-Islamic God, the God of the Platonist/Neoplatonist/Gnostic groups, Aten, Ahuramazda, and arguably one or two Native American interpretations of the Creator Spirit). Of course, a lot depends on how far back you trace common origins, especially with the Native American beliefs.

Pick up a history book and read about all the civilizations that existed before Christ, dummkopf.

...your God wasn't the first imaginary friend someone thought up.

Tarvu for President!

"Where do people get ideas of other gods besides simply God?"

I know, the very idea that God didn't fall to Earth as a baby, didn't land in the ocean, and wasn't raised by octopuses as it says in The Tarbunty is, frankly, ludicrous!

See you at the chabernacle, and praise Tarvu!

The Father is GOD God, Son is his avatar on Earth in human form, the Holy Spirit is his non-corporal presence on Earth. It's not that hard to understand.

We have 1001 other things to point out. Please, stick with the legitimate ones.

There are Hundreds of Thousands of religions, not just hundreds.

Other gods were worshipped BEFORE "God".

I agree with Dawkins on this one: (paraphrasing) the religion you're associated and familiar with happens by the "accident" of your birth.

I happened to be born to white, middle-class Americans hence my Catholic upbringing. If I were born to Middle Eastern parents, I probably would have been a Muslim. To Israelites, a Jew. It's not that hard to figure out.

So the religions call God by a different name. Does that mean they're inherently different entities? What if they're all the same? Does it really matter?
