Re: God Vs Science (Sam)

Benjamin Franklin, perhaps, said it best:
"The way to see by Faith is to shut the eyes of Reason."
- Poor Richard 1758

When discussing 'gods' from a rational perspective one must identify the 'god' being discussed.

Assuming you mean the Judeo-Christian god then the entity is a logical impossibility. One can not be omniscient and think. The two are logically exclusive. If an entity knows everything it cant't learn anything new, it can't discover something, there can not be any conceivable situation in which it doesn't already know the outcome, and therefore ... it can not think.

And yet Judeo-Christian theology is repleat with an entity that claims omniscience and yet claims to think. Bzzzzzz. Wrong answer.

But then what can you expect when basing ones faith on a text of unknown origin that is known to have been mistranslated and edited with malace and aforethought.
