Rig Veda 10:129. It ponders the mystery of origins and offers more questions than answers.
Who really knows, and who can swear,
How creation came, when or where!
Even gods came after creation’s day,
Who really knows, who can truly say
When and how did creation start?
Did He do it? Or did He not?
Only He, up there, knows, maybe;
Or perhaps, not even He.3

To paraphrase Lao Tzu, the God that can be defined is not the true God.

Personally, I find it unfair to use one faith's idea of "divinity" to define all ideas of what "God" is...after all, Christianity did NOT invent the concept of godliness.
So for Christianity to own the monopoly on what a god should be defined as, is like saying that Microsoft should hold a monopoly on defining the computer, or any of its respective parts.edit on 12-9-2012 by AfterInfinity because: (no reason given)
It seems that you define God as something to own, or as an achievement.
God is something or someone who is a person, an individual, with thoughts and feelings of His own, and is not something to be owned or achieved through self effort.
God is someone that looks and thinks like us.
