You made this up. That's why you have no evidence to support your hilarious religious claim.

I didn't read every post, but your post's headline is not what you intend. It should be in the next line.

If God were real

Yeah, I didn't want to say anything. It's enough work just correcting everyone on lay/lie.

The standard trope is Can God create a Rock he can't lift? This goes to a limitation of language and human cognition: Of Course God can. See?


If a god is omniscient, then he knows everything, including what he's going to do in the future. If he knows what's going to happen in the future, he can't change his mind, and change what he was going to do, thus he's not omnipotent.

If a god is omnipotent, then he can change his mind 10 seconds later from time X, thus, he isn't omniscient at time X. He doesn't know everything, specifically what he was going to do at time X+10s.
Listening twice as much as you speak is a sign of wisdom.

Well, I assume he knew he would change his mind. That what omniscient means.
