    May 21 2011: I'm a non-theist. But if one god can exist why can't many?

    Let's just say there is one god, now he's omniscient, so he'd know it'd be stupid to just tell billions of people their faith is wrong, so he doesn't do that.

    If there was two gods why would they war? They're omnipotent and they'd know it'd be an effort in futility. They'd probably discuss amongst themselves and decide not to cause shit on our fragile little planet.

    What is a real god? An omnipotent, omniscient being. What is a non-real god? A being that claims to be a god that is not omnipotent or omniscient.

    Although I myself don't think a "real" god exists. I don't even believe in intelligent design, the concept definitely interests me.
    • May 22 2011: Dear Dayne,
      I think your comments have internal contradictions:

      1-"They'd probably discuss amongst themselves"
      2- "What is a real god? An omnipotent, omniscient being"

      do you think An omnipotent God needs any discuss with any one?
      discuss is for when you have some limitation. but An omnipotent never have any limitation.

      if a God is really An omnipotent, it can easily destroy other competitor with no discuss. piece of cake.

        May 24 2011: "do you think An omnipotent God needs any discuss with any one?
        discuss is for when you have some limitation. but An omnipotent never have any limitation."

        "if a God is really An omnipotent, it can easily destroy other competitor with no discuss. piece of cake."

        You can't make these statements without a reasonable doubt as it's hard to comprehended omnipotence. I mean sure it makes sense thinking omnipotent means all powerful/capable of anything. But consider if there are multiple gods and they're all omnipotent, God A "destroys" God B but God B being also omnipotent simply travels back in time and stops it, or simply is undestroyable. It would be an effort in futility.

        Though I suppose that would kind of mean they weren't omnipotent.
        • May 24 2011: oh yes,
          I did not think to backing in time.
          also other can back in time.
          does time take God?
          I think time is only for materials.
          "Though I suppose that would kind of mean they weren't omnipotent. "
          please explain this.
