-by Stephen Wells:
The mistake in reasoning of those who “give it up to God” is generally one of falsely assuming that any higher power operates like a magic wand.
Author Napoleon Hill who spent years studying successful people noted that the spiritual difference of successful over non successful people was that successful people assigned their faith to God to provide solutions for for them to take action on themselves, rather than for God to simply make their problems go away.
In short, God was to be found within their own subconscious and expressed by acting on their intuition, which itself was disciplined and directed by conscious thought and continuous action towards a clearly defined goal.

Yes, this is the correct(scientific) definition of god.
Gods exists as information.
That information is trained into your intuition
That training organizes and filters your intuition.
Primarily it prevents self deception or, (and this is true) deception by your genes, old, and middle brains.
And for very obvious reasons, anthropomorphizing that information is more effective at extracting truthfulness from your intuition than you are able to do without it – because intuition will let your genes influence you chaotically while anthropomorphized intuition falsifies your intuition (your auto association) to predict how that character would interpret your thoughts. In other words, we can use our social instincts to override our chaotic intuition by creating a framework for truthful prediction.
This is pretty obvious once you think it thru. Our bodies and faculties are our only system of measurement. But since we are human and evolved consciousness with enough recursion to predict others’ actions, feelings, thoughts, and wants, we can use other people (archetypes) as systems of measurement as well.
Is there a difference between what would god want me to do, what would Jesus want me to do, what would Gandalf or Aristotle, me to do, and what would my grandmother want me to do?
No there isn’t other than a god is a proxy for your social order.
Systems of measurement to provide a neural economy superior predictive power.
