If you accept the fact that we, as homo sapiens who have not yet achieved the singularity have an incomplete and flawed view of both science and spirituality, and that in fact, we probably understand only 1/100th of a single percent of how the universe works, then the best answer to the nature of god is that it is a hormonal pissed off pre-teen.

That the entire multi-verse we can see and hear with our most powerful telescopes is the equivalent of a 12 year old's ant farm and thus is subject to weird experiments, capricious handling, and eventual neglect.

I am an ethical hedonist no more, now I am a GIAI
(god is an idiot)acolyte.

god is a gay teenage kid

Add the pressure of having to conform to some grand plan of reproduction that god has to oversee which they find repugnant. There you have it. Perfectly explains God. Conversion therapy to their pressures to get glory is a requirement for all.

God is definitely a dick like a teenager. Keeping everyone clueless about the universe. Bastard. Show me how to make a star or a planet.

Both god and a teenager see themselves as the be-all and end-all, the center of the world, what they say goes, and don't you dare tell them "NO!"

So the Mormons are right. God actually does know everything.

The Mormon God is a petty bureaucrat. The emphasis is all on the paperwork. Genealogy. Temple work. Even dumping Mormonism is paperwork.

Nope. They are worshipped by and with petty bureaucracies. Big difference.

I see. So if there was a god he/she/ or it would not be like these people most definitely. Maybe there is hope for the universe after all.

Humans love hierarchies and rarely are they benevolent. The Heavenly one is the exception. And if it isn't pure fiction then it would be nothing like the ones humans create for themselves. A supreme being going to all the trouble to create a creature to love and be loved seems like a huge waste of precious resources to love it bureaucratically. I'll leave governments to try that one.

How does one tell an ethical hedonist from a non-ethical hedonist ?

They are just as concerned about you getting an orgasm as they are about getting one.

Many religionists are closeted non-ethical hedonists.

The other answer is better, but in truth, the basis of hedonism if that it feels good it is ok. Ethical hedonsim included the qualifier of not hurting anyone else before it is deemed acceptable.

So he probably has acne and thinks his parents are dorks and completely out of touch with the latest trends because.....they still use the term "mormon"........his mom still has 2 piercings......his dads prophet doesn't have a light pen......they love the smell of burning animal flesh......they don't have a problem with homosexuality.....etc, etc.

He's like the kid in The Twilight Zone......

There are so many things we don't know about this planet. 80% of the ocean is unexplored and basically unknown. Bigfoot and his cousins roam the Pacific Northwest yet scientists still haven't been clever enough to catch him. And what exactly is gravity? no smarty pants academian has a thorough answer yet for that. What are black holes really?

We just don't know much about this ant farm we're living in.

True, in the end the earth is king i think. We are just fleas on its back temporarily. Probably very annoying fleas at this point.

What if God is not a white- bearded angry/mood swingy male king on a cloud throne? that throws lightening bolts, heckfire and curses around?, (man's definition) and ancient man's assumptions. Can you see how we made "the divine" in our image? and assume perfect Divine love must be 100% like us humans? (reread old testament).
I like how certain Hindu's describe" God", basically saying it is nature and life itself(pantheism). Just some Hindu's feel the need to name 100's of gods to describe all the diff aspects of Divine, like "god of the trees" ,sky, rivers, air, monkeys, mountains etc,but overall is the notion that life itself is that, Brahman.(the ultimate reality underlying all that exists). and i like that.

I mean think about it, "Perfect Divine Love"? Imagine the most loving father you have ever,ever seen. Would he suddenly become angry and throw fits or have mood swings?,Or bring physical pain on others to teach them? (it's nonsense). weeping wailing gnashing of teeth in spirit realm?? what teeth? lol. I like what one psychologist/counselor said, he said," I feel like I cannot even get angry at anyone anymore now that I understand human mind/psychology so well, I understand why everyone does what they do!"Surely an all -knowing perfect Love would be like that, compassionate, the ultimate compassionate.
