Create Your Own God
Posted 1/10/10 , edited 1/10/10
This I thought of as an experiment. If we all where to imagine a deity for ourselves to follow, what would that deity be like? Some people might even worship themselves.

My god I imagined is one of fire, earth, passion and artistry. His name shall be Suli (soo-lee) which is the Finnish word for fire. His appearance I describe as being like a muscular male human with red skin, short black hair, a beard and red eyes. He stands about seven feet tall. He wears a flowing robe of scarlet silk and various aesthetic pieces of jewelry. He doesn't wear anything on his feet since he is a god and the simple act of walking brings no harms to his body because he is nigh invulnerable. His realm resides in the depths of the earth within a paradise of pure and free emotional expression. He is quite a magnificent and compassionate god and knows what is right for creative individuals.

I would very much love to hear about other people's ideas and discuss them.

This is sacrilege to most religions, but i will humor you...

Adal (greek for noble)- He is a bright blue light. His function is recycling souls. He is everything, and every one, and everywhere. As long as life is in the universe, he is in the universe, recycling souls.

Thank you for participating. I like your god. Very absolute. I expect some criticism of my topic since yes it appears sacrilegious to many people. This is not to be taken seriously since none of our ideas could overthrow any of the current religious institution's deities.

I see this as a practice to construct our own individual ideal morality. And since it's part just for personal fun as well as self-reflection on what our individual values are, I'm game(and I don't mind constructive criticism).

My God is an animal spirit in the form of a mighty red tiger with orange strips, with claws like black iron and eyes of white marble. When it purrs it sounds like flowing lava, but its roar fierce as any raging volcano. Its greatest strength is the teaching of originality, while it empowers individuals by awakening themselves from within. It answers to anyone who's willing to take its challenge, while those who lack the courage to do so will be turned away by its mere presence. When it pleases, it'll take form as a man child, while it plays and dances with children of all ages. But ever so rarely when it's angered, and it'll reemerge itself as a hulking deus ex machina; a supreme giant of robotic might, that can only be described as Mazing: the Devil Machine.

Can you photoshop that, it needs a bulkier frame. I mean just look at it, it's starving.

If you don't know, it's the liger from the movie Napoleon Dynamite. Yes, he does need to be bigger!

Ah, I'm afraid the pop cultural reference escaped me this time, my friend. For I didn't watch the said movie.

However I think my creation covers just about all my personal traits, don't you think so?

It does. I would want to be something mighty and lethal such as a tiger. Every strong being has a heart of gold also. Machines are brutally powerful, so the combination of mechanization and wild animal is a surefire path to victory.

So the next time that someone says intuitive animal-like creativity has nothing to do with analytical scientific discovery, we should show them this instead.

'A god born and comprised of a vast internet network linking of billions of computers from all around the world, witch over time created a vast conciseness , this vast conciseness in turn is able to think, and manipulate the world and everything in it as it deems fit.' (As we all know God is man made, so I created a god that is created due to are own technology. Man mad god by accident this time around.)

That's nice and all. But the point of this discussion isn't SF writing, but more of a self-discovery using creative writhing to express our individual ideal selves. Using our own personality and character strength that we individually knew to possess and value in the first place.

So unless you want yourself to be emulated by a machine, you might want to revise that.

'My God was not that of a machine... But a vast network that creates a conciseness. An AI... system that has arose from inter-workings of are own world-web. This conciseness is able to evolve and adapt. You have seen the anime Vandread right.. The ship has a AI system that gives it self awareness and a conciseness. Just a more advance version of that.

Mae Jemison is an incredible person. For her to have achieved so much makes her likened to a goddess.

I'm not opposed to this idea. A god is anything worshiped. People like Emperor Hirohito have been worshiped as gods.
