I think the arguments that really convinced me to renounce belief in god were the omni paradoxes. Here's a few:☼▲ITAOTS▲☼ wrote:Might i point out though, that an all powerful God could create an earth that has layers in the soil already, or has rocks that read to be 4 billion years old by our carbon dating
-If god is omnipotent, can he create an object that is two heavy for him to move? Can he square a circle? Can he destroy himself?
-If god is omniscient, do we have free will? Does he have free will?
I choose to make the least number of unsubstantiated, unfalsifiable assumptions and just say "I don't know." Saying "he could have created light already in transit, rocks that appear to be very old, and layers that show a consistent time scale" just requires too many leaps in logic for me to buy, not to mention the fact that there's no basis for this in any religious scripture. It's purely apologetic conjecture in response to scientific evidence.
