    Religion:
    Agnostic with strong atheistic tendencies. Perhaps apatheist or ignostic.
    Well, a God would certainly believe in 'himself'. But probably not in a 'higher power'.

    I offer five items....of absolute
    bigger, faster, stronger, more intelligent and greatly experienced

    Almighty

    lacking any one item would not be almighty

    Well then yes, since Absolute doesn't exclude anything.

    Given all the nonsense surrounding the word atheist, I would suggest defining atheist as well....

    So why do religionists spend so much time and energy explaining why God cannot do this and that? Like "Give human beings a clear Message about Himself and what's best for us to do"?

    Since God is an anthropomorphism of what the believer considers good or perfect, no: God would be a theist. Theists tend to see theism as a good thing and atheism as a bad thing, so their God would agree with this and reflect this position.

    Does "absolute" even have beliefs?
    Things get confusing when we noun adjectives.

    having made reality....
    the rules cannot be set aside for the everyday routing
    stone to bread?....no
    walk on water?.....no
    the blind see
    the lame walk
    etc

    gravity must be gravity
    do not step from a high place expecting the angel to catch you

    we have been told what is best to do

    all that a man might lack is motivation

    What is wrong with using "god" as a name?
    Not specific enough?
    Would not the same issues apply with using "almighty" as a name?
