There are many kinds of Gods. People usually have two very different Gods in mind when they say the word ‘God’.

One God is the cosmic mystery. We don’t understand why there is something rather than nothing, why the Big Bang happened, what human consciousness is. There are many things we don’t understand about the world and some people choose to call these mysteries by the name “God’. God is the reason there is something rather than nothing. God is behind human consciousness. The most characteristic thing about this God is we know absolutely nothing about him / her / it / they. There is nothing concrete. It’s a mystery. This is the God we talk about late at night in the desert as we sit around the camp fire and think about the meaning of life. That’s one meaning of God. I have no problem with this version of God, in fact I like it very much.

Then there is another God which is the petty law giver. The characteristic of this God is we know a lot of concrete things about that God. We know what he thinks about female dress code, we know what he think about sexuality, we know what he feels about food, about politics. This is the God people talk about when they stand around while burning a heretic. We will burn you because you did something that God doesn’t like. It’s like a magic trick. How do you know God exists? Well, the Big Bang and human consciousness and science can’t explain this and that,

and then like a magician swapping one card for another, they will take out the mystery God and replace it with the petty law giver and you end up with something strange like because we don’t understand the Big Bang, women must dress with long sleeves and men shouldn’t have sex together. What’s the connection? How did you get from here to there?
