Today, with theism rapidly losing ground across Europe and among Americans as well, we could stand to reconsider this point. Surely a more plausible conception of God couldn't hurt.But is he right? Would "a more plausible conception of God" give atheists pause? There are a few problems here:
First, atheism is the claim that God doesn't exist, not the claim that the concept of God is incoherent. (Although some atheists use the concept's incoherence as evidence against theism.) So, Hazony would still need to show that this imperfect being he has conceived of really does exist.
Second, if one talks about God's attributes in terms of degrees, rather than maximums, then one has to specify the degree to which God's attributes are such that they enable him to perform extraordinary feats, such as creating the universe. For example, if God is not all-powerful, how powerful does God have to be in order to be able to create the universe?
Finally, is an imperfect being worthy of the title "God"? Why should such a being be worshiped?
