    ...he realised if there is nothing, there will be nothing forever. Our earliest memory (conception.)

    Again, who is this talking baby that called itself God? And how did it have a memory at conception when it didn't have a brain?

    I have a memory of conception! I said he'd talk AFTER crying. I didn't say immediately.

    Does this bring back memories?



    I get it now, your talking about the baby that grew up and committed suicide by cop.

    Keep thinking that! It only takes the simple decision to ALWAYS hate him...

    What do you call it when someone engineers their own death?

    That's illegal, and is punished without a Church burial. How could a man living alone in the dark without access to drugs or weapons kill himself??

    It's not that hard to imagine what God does and what God wants ... bearing in mind in 'theory' we are made in his image.

    If we were (and we do intend to, attempt to all the time) to be God what would 'we' do and 'what would 'we' want. As 'we' are not collectively all the 'same' in regard to good moral conscience, we can't assume what ourselves playing God would do or want because that depends on how good or bad or whatever that 'God' being is.

    So the question is (and who's God are we asking this question of?? Let's assume you're referring to Christian God) then 'God is Good.'
    Is their God 'good' ? I haven't studied the religion so don't know how they describe this entities moral compass. Let's assume it's good?

    If God wants to do 'good' then he'd surely seek to eliminate the majority of the human population so the planet and all its beautiful (otherwise living harmoniously and in balance with nature) creatures can exist without our increasigly dangerous presence.

    Totally idiot response

    Your implying a omnipotent god created humans (remember it is preached he knows everything) to get rid of us because it didn't work out?????

    HE'S OMNIPOTENT HE KNOWS IT'S NOT GOING TO WORK OUT AS HE'S MOULDING THE DIRT TO MAKE ADAM

    Note to self - settle down

    If God wants to do anything or wants anything it is worth while to establish if he exists...can we do that ? No well God does not exist.

    Presumably, the idea is that, by giving humans free will, he is deliberately switching off his omniscience.

    Interesting idea

    Not sure how that would work

    Will go back to sleep and think about later. Three hours before normal wake up and breakfast time

    Did God say he was omnipotent or did his followers claim he was? Either way, regardless of what one says, doesn't make it so.

    OK awake and just 1 cup coffee into the day

    Not sure how switching off omniscience works because that would generate a memory of what has been switched off which in essence be the same as what he has switched off (the knowledge it wasn't going to work out)

    But I'll let it slide

    Next though I don't see how it relates to free will

    My position on free will - we do have free will subject to
    • physics and
    • imponderables (zillions of butterflies effects)
    Even with zillions of impondrables the omniscience would still allow the knowledge "it's not going to work" to be known to god

    So I stand by

    And I have settled down

    If we ignore what his followers say, we lose God entirely.

    How so, he exists or he doesn't, followers or no followers ... if he does, then what his fan club say is irrelevant regarding the truth of the being
