Reply in this thread with at least one criterion that a being should satisfy to be considered a god.

This is an opportunity for anyone who believes that the criteria here were too heavily steeped in theology.

8. How about a consistent and logical backstory.....
...one which doesn't require that you create your own antagonist just to enable you to demonstrate what a badass deity you are, and who will fuck someone up if you get pissed-off.

12. Omnipotence, pure and simple.
Also, it wouldn't hurt for it to have a history of actually having created the universe. I submit that anything less cannot be called a god, but rather is simply an incredibly advanced being, like Q.

18. Slightly negative attribute, but sadly lacking in so many candidates:
no mike fright, stage fright, agoraphobia, whatever it is that keeps Her from showing Herself.

19. The ability to hide all evidence of its own existence, except from a select few people...
...who will be granted access to incontrovertible evidence that this being exists, evidence that those so chosen won't possibly be able communicate to anyone else who isn't also deemed "worthy" to receive that very same evidence anyway, all while being totally in charge of everything that happens in the universe.

20. The overriding criterion would be their ability to manifest
as me.

Since this criterion has been met at least once, the existence of god is now established beyond all doubt...
