    Think about it... a Creator that 'created' the Sun, Moon, Stars, Earth, nature, humans.. God is unfathomable, undefinable and totally beyond human comprehension.

    Nobody can confine God. Books such as the Bible, Koran and the Bhavgavad Gita cannot confine God. You may confine spirits, demons and other entities.

    Unfortunately, many falsely believe that everything they need to know about God can be confined in their scriptures. All scriptures are written by man who is imperfect by Divine Will.

    God is in the energy behind every molecule of all matter in the Universe. Therefore, how can a structure confine God?

    How can you possibly confine God when He is omnipresent and omnicient?  to a christian your questions are insulting and very wierd.

    That raises the question of what created the reality within the so-called God exists.

    In Islam they say "God is one" which is, I believe a metaphor saying God is all things.  i.e. God is not a person, being or thing.  God is everything.  And being infinite, by definition, negates the concept of having shape.

    Many believe God has the shape of a tetrahedron.

    A tetrahedron is the first shape that can exist in 3 dimensional space with the least number of vertices and sides.

    I think Gravity is a God, it makes sure we have our feet firmly on the floor. Is Pan Dimensional and cannot be explained by science. But then I don.t believe or condemn belief.

    NO.  we do not have an image of god and therefore I believe HE is above human comprehension and thus cannot be confined to any animate/in-animate object in this world.  As it says in the holy scriptures of all world religions God is beyond form.  Therefore we as His created cannot attribute a form to Him.

    The simple answer is NO. You cannot confine God at all. He is our Creator. "For by Him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by Him, and for Him: And He is before all things, and by Him all things consist.” (Colossians 1:16, 17). This is why it is offensive to Him when we attempt to make Him into some shape or structure, and which is why He has commanded us, "Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image" (Exodus 20:4). That's idolatry. We do not know what He looks like but we do know He exists and He reveals Himself to sinful man through His word, through nature, etc. He is far above what our finite minds can understand.

    No one has ever seen God.  God is everywhere. He is omnipotent and opmnipresent and will never be confined to anything.  As a matter of fact, I would not want to serve a God that could be confined.

    I don't know...God...I think God is inside of you,is in your mind...God is you!You can't prove that there is God or something like that.Everything you think  about God, religion etc. is in your mind,you would not be able to know,imagine,believe,pray to your God if had not mind.So God is your mind's creature that was born in your childhood,from your parents' sayings etc.The reason for that is that all of us some day will pass away...we don't know what is gonna happen after death...we are afraid!For that we "made" God, to hope that after death he will save us,that if we are good people he will take us to heaven,that in one difficult situation he will help us etc etc...Don't expect any help,any solutions,any salvation from no one!Believe in yourself and in your physical and mind powers!God is inside of everyone!

    God cannot be confined. if someone or something can be confined, Surely, they would NOT be a God.

    Some people don't believe God to be of any shape or structure or any "one" to be refered to.
    When asked the question, "What does God want?" some people believe that answer to be nothing. For, in their eyes, God is everything.That beign said, God needs nor wants anything.

    Totally agree with Ashantina on this one. For all you anti-religious people out there, get the hell off this page. I hate it when people try to go against a question that doesn't even relate to them.

    I can only relate to God with the consciousness that I have.  That is the confine that the illimitable God has in my life, boxed in by my mind, defined by my thoughts.  Yet, the "All is Mind, Mind is All"  When I choose to, I see God in the way the waves wash away the dirt on a beach, or how the sun shines on behind the clouds, and in the eyes of my 3 year old son.  When I choose to see God, I confine God within the interpretation of my vision. 

    The definite can not see the infinite has been said by some, but the  definite (human) can only see the infinite (God) because there is nothing else to see.

    No you can't because God is a spirit. He is all space, time and eternity! His dwelling place is the souls of mankind, it is also the dwelling place for evil spirits/Satan. It depends on who you choose to follow!
