add on a main chart the characteristics[edit]

  • Species: Personotropic spirit
It isn't a done deal that God would be a Person, nor that he would be a Spirit. Tgeorgescu (talk) 06:01, 31 July 2019 (UTC)

Please add the following immediately after the sentence that includes "the Five Ways of Aquinas.":

Three of Aquinas's Proofs come from Aristotle, and one, the Argument from Necessity, is seemingly so compelling that a recent British philosopher, Antony Flew, renounced atheism because of it. [1] A French atheistic philosopher, André Comte-Sponville, rejects with easy reasons all the other proofs but finds this proof so powerful that he vacillates and says it is better to accept absurdity than this proof [2] Explaining how a correct interpretation of Aristotle's Metaphysics allows us to reject the Argument from Necessity that involves the so-called Unmoved Mover (sometimes called God) without being driven to absurdity, a specialist in Aristotle demonstrates that the Stagirite renounced the Unmoved Mover as he matured in favor of a more powerful "proof" that relies simply on the infinite past and a correct understanding of necessity, possibility and impossibility.[3] PlatoLover62 (talk) 22:59, 4 August 2019 (UTC)

  • Oppose - the anecdotes about Antony Flew and André Comte-Sponville tell us nothing about the argument itself, WP:NOTEVERYTHING. The work cited by Gregory L. Scott is self-published by Scott's self-publishing imprint, ExistencePS Press, WP:RSSELF - the citation to Scott's self-published book has been added to a few other articles and may constitute WP:REFSPAM, using Wikipedia to promote the book - Epinoia (talk) 01:22, 5 August 2019 (UTC)
Marking this as Not done, per the above. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 03:17, 6 August 2019 (UTC)

Please link infinity in "... is simultaneously infinite and, in some way, present in the affairs..." because it is not linked anywhere currently (replace "is simultaneously infinite and, in some way, present in the affairs" with "is simultaneously [[infinity|infinite]] and, in some way, present in the affairs").

Also, remove "infinitely" from divine simplicity destinated link in "... Catholic theology holds that God is infinitely simple..." because infinity has no mention in Divine simplicity article and is unrelated with that entity (replace "Catholic theology holds that God is [[divine simplicity|infinitely simple]]" with "Catholic theology holds that God is infinitely [[divine simplicity|simple]]").

 Done, except that I linked Infinity (philosophy) as apparently more appropriate here (there's been some talk that these two articles shouldn't be separate, but for now, I think the philosophy one relates more). –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 23:33, 28 September 2019 (UTC)

The good news newspaper did an article on "What is God" and I thought it would be a strong addition to add to the references below. It is being answered by a person who has a PHD and it was published in the paper. Johnhelpsyou (talk) 17:20, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

Not done. The reference list is automatically generated from inline citations; it's not a general bibliography. –Deacon Vorbis (carbon • videos) 18:00, 1 October 2019 (UTC)

YHWH = Yehowah[edit]

'Jehovah' doesn't use the tetragrammaton of YHWH, but does have the symbolic 7 letters. 'Yahweh' uses YHWH, but it's only 6 letters. YHWH = Yehowah(7 letters). (talk) 13:46, 24 October 2019 (UTC)
