What are the attributes something has to have to count as 'a god'? I don't mean capital-G God, but a member of the class 'gods'.
For example, does a god have to be immortal or unkillable? Many myths invovlve entitities that have powers that fall well short of omnipotence, omniscience and omnipresence, but still get called 'gods' or 'godesses'.
Does a god have to be conscious or sentient? Must he/she/it be able to plan ahead and delibately act to bring about their desired goal?
As an atheist, obvuously I don't believe in capital-G God, but really I don't believe there is any thing 'god-like'. Mopac says God is 'ultimate reality', I'not quite sure what the differene between 'reality' and 'ultimate reality' is, but I do belive in reality! But does an atheist have to dispbelieve in reality because Mopac calls reality a god?
