So, your concept of God is just 'First Actor.' That which first acted and set off the chain of events that led to everything else.Thanks Smog for your reply.
Here is my concept of God, namely:
"God in concept is the creator cause of man and the universe and everything with a beginning."
No need please mentioning that there are many concepts of God, you have now my concept of God, what do you say about it, in re His existence or no existence.
Okay, take that idea in isolation and I am basically neutral on that idea. There certainly could have been a 'First Actor' something that happened that set off everything else. But I don't think there is any real evidence of it, either. I can certainly come up with other explanations that could fit just as easily. Everything is cyclical would be one example.
The real problem here is that is not the end of almost anyone's definition. They ascribe values to that Actor: sentience, intelligence, morality, purpose. That is where we run into a problem.
