Define God, the God that you believe in.

No, because otherwise Ill get the usual definition such as omnipotent, omnibenevolent, omniscient, greatest conceivable being, etc.

I want a description such as what form does it take, where is it, does it have a personality, etc.

God is the mental projection of human desires into an anthropomorphic persona that exists within the consciousness of the species of animal known as homo sapiens. That is the God I believe in.

That would be my answer.

Well, I do not believe anything is a "God", but I do believe in the existence of some things people have worshiped at one time or another(E.G. Sun, the Universe, etc...)

when asked to give a name to define himself by moses, he responded with a name that translates
"I-shall-be that I-shall-be."
http://en.wikipedia.org...

So whatever he wants to be is what he is. Some suggest that gods since of humor coming out as way of telling moses, 'I dont have explain myself to you' as apparently back then they thought knowing a name of spiritual being gave them power over them. And of course God is not something you can have power over.
One act of Rebellion created all the darkness and evil in the world; One life of Total Obedience created a path back to eternity and God.

"I AM, THAT I AM"

(I am also, conscious, benevolent, all powerful, wrathful, bigoted, and restless enough to make stuff)
