Contrary to popular belief, it is possible to prove that God doesn't exist. The following is a proof that the existence of God is a logical impossibility.
No, that is simply the same objection and rebuttal that HE COULD make something he can't move, and also be able to move it.
Yes, its all horseshit...but, when you give "omni" prefixes to things, there are always logical paradoxes that arise.
So, logically, we could also say that the problem is the example being a non sequitur.
So, if I made the statement "This sentence is false"
Is it true or false?
Can you say it and have it be true?
Is the problem a lack of potency, or, that the task is a non sequitur?
So TJ, you think it comes down to making a statement such as "this immoveable object is moveable"?
Well, then it's not immovable, is it..?
I think we have to define whom it is immoveable by.
Can God create an object that he himself cannot move? Either way, it is an argument that omnipotence is impossible.
No. Immovable is just that. No one and nothing can move it. If it can be moved, it's movable. Simple.
And I agree omnipotence is highly improbable.
If it can be moved at all.. it's not immovable. That means even if God (assuming they exist for a moment) is the only one who can move it, it's still movable. Though just not movable by ordinary or earthly means. But then we're not talking about whether or not we as humans can move it, we're speaking of God's ability or lack there of.
Your book looks interesting. I think I will buy a copy. In your “About” section you mention the Mensa Parapsychology SIG. That might be interesting. I once ran an Atheist SIG in England and I am thinking of setting one up here in Ireland (once I renew my lapsed membership). I also passed the ISPE test (about 20 years ago) but never joined. I did not know it was still going.
No. God doesn't exist as described by some religions. Other's hold that God is extremely powerful but not all doing (or necesarily all knowing).
This discussion reminds me of kids going on about Superman.
Who said it's just kids..? Have you ever read "Man of Steel and Woman of Kleenex" by Larry Niven?
