Quentin, I clearly stated IF a God is desired THEN defining it is reality itself is the only logical choice. I'm fine just calling it reality, but lots of people (Roger e.g.) need a God.
And it is NOT "ill-defined" even though all of reality is not known. The definition itself is tight, exact and meaningful. One doesn't need to know everything about reality to define it meaningfully as everything that exists. Thus defining God as Reality is well defined and meaningful. It's the only rational choice IF you need a God. Edgar On Monday, December 23, 2013 1:48:40 PM UTC-5, Edgar L.
