    And here I thought it was because of Starlink that astronomers were having trouble observing stars . . . it was Satan all along!

    So Satan was NOT the Lucifer angel in heaven?

    All very confusing like

    how can he be omnipotent if he cannot vanquish Satan

    By the way where did angels come from? Product of the ID'er?

    He doesn't have to vanquish Satan, he is supposed to make peace with it.

    He could have done that in heaven by retirement and passing the top job to Lucifer

    Not like he couldn't go off and make another Universe

    omniscience
    If I knew what I was doing before I did it, what would be the point of doing it?

    ? Because you live in a Deterministic Universe?

    God is not interested in the nitty gritty, because that is merely the result of the movement, and interaction of energy, caused by miniature intelligent agents.
    What we see as action, is merely the end. The beginning is from time immemorial, IMO.

    Liars for Jesus always claim they know the mind of God, especially when it's not found in Scriptures.

    Those aren't mutually exclusive.
    Now, taken together they are mutually exclusive with omnibenevolence.

    That's (one of the reasons) why I don't believe the gods are all-loving, or even necessarily all-powerful and all-knowing.

    Do you accept there is one God, from whom all the gods are made?

    Gods were made by men, one simply has to look at any given set of scriptures to see they were all written by men.

    That question was aimed at Hapsburg.
    I aimed a question at you.

    You should be thankful it was answered. Of course, I'm guessing it wasn't the answer you were looking for.
