you may want to consult a dictionary on that...



I chose to give the word "god" a positive, secular meaning. First of all, I've made it attainable, but not to everyone, just to the ones with ability. Because that is what the word has always been about, someone with ability (often someone omnipotent), who is a creator. If you have innate ability, intrinsic motvation, and the will to practice a lot, why wouldn't you be able to become a god? I say that you can.

Am I using language in a way counter to what it is for? Maybe. Am I trying to convey a point I think is important by doing so? Certainly.
