    To paraphrase an old philosophy professor of mine, "God is a disposal facility for irresolvable philosophical problems."

    which one of them?
    Everyone of them has different ways of being, different wisdom, different enlightenment status, different teaching. So how to describe them?

    Only by cultivation of a spiritual teaching will give you personal understanding of what a God is

    Well, I can't define God without mentioning God, so no, I can't define God with using the word "God". I can define a universe that allows for God, but where God in the standard supernatural/metaphysical idealism/theological sense is not certain to exists.

    I've always believed...

    ...that there's a definition for God.​

    Actually, the mistake is yours, my friend. I wasn't providing a definition in that post. :)

    Not really that hard - dictionaries (terrible as they are for adequately representing complex terms/ideas) always define terms without using the term itself.
