To Beleive or not Beleive is irrelevant the question is if real "What is God"
The debate will show the desrciption eventually.
The debate title neither stated that God is or is not real, but rather, if God is real, what is God? if real are the keywords here!
I really wish that some of you more aggressive atheists on here could read debate titles and descriptions in context. I can't help but think that you (pl.) are too afraid to imagine the existence of God (and your possible errancy) so, instead of either ignoring the debate or actually thinking about it in context, you post your typical rhetoric. I'm not saying that that's why, but simply that that is the impression you give.

... and my keyword would be Marshmallow.

Sure, flippant answers are no fun. To be fair though I wish aggressive theists could detect irony. Neither of us are going to get what we want right now it appears.

Most atheist were once theist, so most have had imagined. Ironically (more irony) it is the imagining which leads to rejection of these various doctrines more times than not.

Marshmallow is neither rhetorical or typical. I'm the sole member of the church of Marshmallow to my knowledge.

Only to theists who wish I'd frame arguments in such a way they can use one of the "god might exist" rhetorical tricks they learn in seminar or wherever.
People who ask this question, in this way want to hear things like "Truth" "Good" "Knowledge" etc. Whatever. They then go into "You observe this therefore these things exist" then they skip two or three steps in logic and come to the conclusion "something must exist which has these traits therefore" here it varies either "There might be a god, just open your mind to it!" or "there must be a god, you're dumb for not understanding!"
I've been through it several times. I didn't feel like playing right now.
Marshmallow is my answer and I'm sticking to it.
god is real in the sense that the concept has meaning to people who actually exist and effect the world. in this sense god is a meme, a semiotic construct, and a linguistic construct that influences human behavior both individually and as groups.
However, if you mean a causer of the universe, then you could say that the only valid concept relating to the description of what god is would be - intentional cosmic being - since true knowability beyond this is impossibility since corporeality is noa a quality of god and our understanding is based in and about the corporeal. This departs from the many anthropomorphic anthropocentric and fantastic conceptions that we find in many religious traditions.
However, if you mean the god of the aberhamic religious, god is a powerful ass who is psychologically disturbed and unstable emotionally.
If the God I believe in is real, then I would describe him as an extra-dimensional spiritual being whom was the embodiment of the energy that makes up our universe. A being outside of time, because if you were eternal the concept of time would hold little meaning. So basically an alien being that seems to bear feelings of love for our strange race.
This is basically what I lean towards when I think about it and I believe in God well its almost common sense if you ask me I mean people get all crazy when you say God is an alien or extraterrestrial . But for God to exist he has to be something and since he is not from this planet or universe then he is an extraterrestrial, which means something not from this planet. Yes he created the earth and universe but the simple fact that he created it should let you know that he is not from it. That's not an opinion just a rational thought if that's the term for it.
