Thank you for your post. I am fully aware of all the points you mention. However, it doesn't matter how many differing thoughts, ideas or philosophies theologians have on the subject they study and work on in their profession, or how many characteristics and attributes they may say that God/god/s possess or profess, the fact remains that not one of them anywhere, any time, has come up with a verifiable, objective (etc etc) fact about any of the God/god/s that humans have imagined exist. If you think this is incorrect, please say exactly why.
