Why are you arguing about arguing about it? THAT'S the question:P
Technically questions aren't arguments... oh, well. I'm at a loss for words, anyway.
Nah, that was funny :)

i dont really get what this contest is, but i wrote an article on what a god is, and then you can decide whether we need a thought that embodies the traits requires to be a deity i guess.
Religious gods around the world and from countless cultures all seem to follow similar rules. Gods have few physical boundaries and oppose what common sense would order, which makes it impossible to prove their nonexistence. All gods are intentional agents, meaning that their actions have meaning behind them. They also know information about their followers, and they act upon this information to punish or help people or animals. Gods know what is considered good or bad in a culture. They have noticeable actions that let people know of their existence. Gods also draft habitual behavior from followers, often to worship. A god must be worshipped or given commitment in some way from their people.
So now the question is whether these traits create something that people need so badly.
