Re: What are the duties of a God?
Or at the other end of the extreme, are we crafting a God of our own imagination that could be our own collective Ego?
Yep. Nothing but a mirror behind Jar's curtain. Nothing extreme, and it should not be a surprise.

Re: The Fifth Candidate
Is this candidate qualified to be God?
Absolutely. Candidate 5 is the only likely candidate.
As for a "global committee," I'm sure you realize that the collective imagination of humans with regard to its ability to create mythologies is much more complex than a committee. Do you really want to argue that point?

Re: The Fifth Candidate
As court continues, Candidate 5 (human imagination) takes its seat next to Candidate 4. The other candidates at the table seem a little less substantial in the presence of 5.
Candidate 5 briefly considers creating a new candidate (as it has created the other four sitting at the table). Maybe later.

A Matter of Human Imagination
On a semi serious note, however, I now call upon our various Deity candidates to one at a time attempt to best express themselves and touch us...proving to our own internal beliefs at least that they deserve to be loved, worshiped, and trusted.
Well, I guess Candidate 5 (Human Imagination) will bow out of this particular competition. I don't think, strictly speaking, that Imagination deserves any of the above (love, worship, trust).
However, if you decide to return to the OP:
I want to start a semi humorous, semi serious discussion about the nature of God.
then I will make 5's case.
I suppose that 5, as the meta-god, should not really be on the panel. But, if you want to know the true nature of any god, 5 should not be ignored. Gods do not exist except in the presence of Candidate 5.
Cheerio.
