A friend of mine once suggest that God is a kind of parent substitute, who loves us, teaches us, takes care of us, and so on. It certainly is a comforting thought, if it was true.

However, if you go into the details of the usual suspects -- the Jewish and Christian and Islamic God concepts -- you end up deciding (as I did) that you practically have to redefine the word to make much sense if it, even as a competent parent figure. At that point, you may as well drop the idea altogether, since you are no longer using the word "God" as most people understand it.
