On a Supernatural God
It’s mostly agreed that, for a god to be a god, it has to be supernatural. As I don’t think the supernatural exists, I don’t think gods exist, and here’s why….
If a natural being were powerful enough to do all the things a god could do that would still not make it a god, and no more worthy of worship that I would be by an ant.
Example – man has immense power over single cell organisms, we can even make artificial ones in the lab, from the point of view of a single celled organism WE are gods, and show all the traits that we’d ascribe to a god. But that doesn’t alter the fact that we’re not, we’re just much more powerful than they are. Likewise, any naturally occurring being that appears godlike to us.
For anything to be supernatural to exist it HAS to exist outside of the realm of the real, if something isn’t real it doesn’t exist. The very act of existence pushes anything that exists into the realm of reality, no matter how strange or powerful that thing is.
Nothing is supernatural, because it is not possible for anything to BE supernatural. And as nothing can be supernatural, even if a being were discovered that showed all the traits of a god, it would not be one.
