God's TFP screen name?

I'm looking through a lot of these posts and I have to wonder why people who don't believe in God have sooo many opinons about God. There are a ton of arguments for and against the existance of God that I sometimes wonder who is winning the debate. How many people convert to some form of religion compared to people who loose all faith? Based on your current view of God and the gender you assign, what would his screen name be? What would his avatar look like? Let's assume God does not use the screen name God.

My background: I believe in God but I'm dissatisfied with religion. I accept that God created the universe and living beings inside it and is letting nature take it's course. I believe in free will and the ability of man to create religion. I believe that God cannot directly see or control future events but can judge what will happen in the future based on what he knows about humanity. I believe that the christian bible should be used as a tool for faith but with the understanding that it has been revised for centuries with certain agendas attached. I don't believe God is a certain gender but I prefer to use male.

Oh, and He does exist! Also, He wouldn't have an avatar. I imagine none would be good enough.

Perhaps a watch in a field for it's avatar. Or perhaps something cute like "Nietzche is Dead"

It's name and avatar would both be beyond human comprehension, and too much effort put into understanding them would simply make your head explode.

Witness is almost sad. Imagine being the Witness of all the horrible stuff people do to each other everywhere. It's time for another worldwide flood.

He already has a screen name: Air45.

But seriously I don't really think there's any reason for me to think about anything like that.

Edit: and he'd probably spend a lot of time on the Titty Board.

"Nietzsche is Dead"... that one cracked me up.

he would probably post his original works in Tilted Artwork... stuff like the Grand Canyon, a DNA strand, and Jennifer Connelly.

His screen name would be whatever your screen name is. And his icon would be whatever your icon is.

We are all God. We are all the hands of God. And the more that we accept the precepts of God -- any positive, accepting, loving religious group's basic rules for living and helping one another -- the more that the presence of God is felt in the world, and his/her/its will is done in the world. Through our hands.

Whether God can exist without us, or we can exist without God, is not a debate I intend to indulge in right now. :-)

I'm of the opinon God would have a name such as IAM, get vaguely annoyed when so few people got it, have an avatar as such: , and a signature something like "Does this omnipresence make my ass look big?"

She's down like that.

defenatly phil. i mean seriously, no other name comes close to it on a scale of shit-kickin' awesomeness. even jesus, gods own son is all like "damn, i wish i could change my name to phil. jesus is totally oldschool and lame".

the avatar, naturally, would be of a box of stove top stuffing. the official stuffing of heaven.

That was pretty funny, with the image and all. BUT I'll pass on putting the image in here too.

I'd have to agree with the "I Am" comment, though I think He might use the tetragrammaton. Or maybe that would be His avatar. Interesting thread and responses.

On the subject of why even those who don't believe argue their points so much, the quote from the Usual Suspects comes to mind. 'I don't believe in God, but I'm afraid of him.' -Paraphrased.

I think that his screen name would be Technocrat, but as mentioned before, no avatar.
