Your beliefs on where Morality comes from?
It seems self-evident that good morals come from God, Who being our Creator knows best how we function; and that bad morals spring from man alone, who has shown himself capable of rationalizing and justifying anything to himself. A mixture of the two renders mixed results.

"Either you can think about it or you can't"---indeed. One can think about the meaning of the tree, the branch one claims for themself as the tree and the severing of the limb from the tree to render the limb they have claimed for themself in time dead and termite eaten---or one can't.

If communism was working the way its progenitors wanted it to, would it be better than capitalism?
I think it was clearly posited that communism will never work, but that capitlism will work as the former works greviously against human nature while capitalism is more aligned with it, so I would say that you did not understand it right. As to human nature being unknown, I would say that 4 millenia of data would give a fairly defensible knowability in the main. You are familiar with the dichotomy of man? While some are given to the belief in social engineering to perfect mankind, all evidence to date counsels that this is not possible. And, no, this generation will be absolutely no better at it.

The problem with those who would argue that God is not the source of good morals is that they have no basis to construct a morality that is devoid of the influence of those who worship or fear what they call god. It is only in modernity that is bent on eschewing God having convinced themselves of their own superiority, that this foolishness has gained foothold. Of course, my question to them is, "By what objective standard is it derived that man is the highest form of life that we know?" Show me a human grown to adulthood in isolation (the morals can be derived without a God argument) and I will show you a very self-centered, greedy, prone to violence and murderous individual; in other words, one possessed of very bad morals indeed. What this generation is want to deny (that morals are objectively established by God), is the very thing that they can not escape as the influence that permeates the society they have inescapably inherited and in which permeates their social constructs. The thing to remember is that morals can be lost when not transmitted through the generations, and transmitting through the generations is one of the tasks set for us to do by God. Witness where we are going---Promethean and self-absorbed.

Communism will never work because it works against human nature, which naturally assumes that those who do more should receive more and it is up to them what to so with what they have acquired. Since communism works against human nature, despotism to enforce by force is an inevitable consequence. Capitalism on the other hand works in concert with human nature. Though greed is inherent in human nature and is the failing that most seem want to use to throw the baby out with the bathwater; it can be ,and is, be mitigated through laws against unfair advantage (monopolies, coersion, fraud, etc.) and through social conscience unless society has morally degenerated to the point where conscience is seared.

Can God be defined?
I hold that belief in God is more reasonable than disbelief. Science can not explain how anything comes from nothing. But even if hope is held out that it one day will, science can not explain the purpose---the big why? Science can only explain the how. The very concept of existence falls without answering the big why. I say that science is merely the discovery of what God has known from the beginning. As to compelling evidence of the existence of God, I believe that the foregoing and my preceding cover that. Perhaps not to your satisfacion, but it is good start. I think the more burdensome proposition is in disbelief. To believe in the big bang / evolutionary theory with no underlying purpose for any life at all is hard put to justify itself; and aliens still will not answer pupose nor the any-matter-coming-from-nothing shortcoming (where did aliens come from?). Believe or disbelieve---that is the question put to every one of us. From what I know and have experienced, belief in (and more importantly, submission to) God is the far more reasonable conclusion.

Can God be defined?
While a quark does not have a mind that we know of, what holds it in place and, more pointedly, why? And to claim that humans are the most intelligent beings we know in the universe purposely refuses to recognize the claims of God and at eh least presumptuous considering that we know so little. I would say that the view that essentially holds God as a catchall for things we do not understand is the product of placing none higher than man himself and predicated on the denial of events of [benevolent] Divine revelation. To the former I would say that simply because man is far and away on a higher intellectual plane than what we know is a narrow view, far narrower than the earthcentric view of those opposed to Galileo. To the latter, I would ask how it is that the Faith has endured for so long?

Many do say that God's power is limited, but I would not be among them. Neither do I rely solely on ontological argument as positive proof of His existence because, as is written in Romans 1, His attributes (and, perhaps to the root of your inquiry, existence) are observable from what He created (though the list of observable attributes is far from all inclusive). At bottom it really does hinge on Faith; not a blind illogical or unreasoned Faith, but a Faith of submission. For like a parent can not do much with a disobedient child, so too are we unworkable in disobedience. In Faith of obedience and submission, He is confirmed; both in reason and logic as well as revealed. This probably does not do much to clarify, but given the space and my limitations it is all I can offer now. Shalom aleichem.

I would say that "eternal all powerful creator, who governs our universe" is descriptive rather than defining and the description is only in part. Essentially, I submit that God can not be defined because to define is to limit. Given the example of "all powerful" is One who can not be limited and therefore can not be defined. This is where man's wrestlng with the concept of God continually falls short. In trying to nail Him down within their understanding, they begin weighing someone or something far, far less than He is.
