• Classical theism: God’s characteristics shown as incoherent

    The classical theistic components of God, his characteristics of being all-loving, all-powerful and all-knowing don’t work very well together. This has been something which I have sought to elucidate over the years, so I thought I would compile a synopsis of where we are at with the idea of OmniGod, and what he has created. These are good arguments, I believe, and I would love to see my readers interact with them, and I would love to see theists of all natures take them to task to see if they stand up. Bookmark this page and return to it, if you will – there’s quite a lot here! I would like to see this as a growing compendium.

    The Ontological Argument: God’s perfection and creation

    God’s own free will

    God’s omniscience

    God’s omniobenevolence – the Problem of Evil and God’s own morality

    General articles about God’s attributes

    God and heaven

    God and hell (and some extras about Satan)

    And while you’re at it, you can check out my cumulative case against God book, The Little Book Of Unholy Questions, written as a series of direct questions to God, in sections, with introductions to each section.

      Whenever I hear WLC talk about morals grounded in gods goodness, I am reminded of Stephens Laws evil god challenge.

      • Hey Fergus

        Funny you should say that: I am just putting my finishing touches on turning all these posts into a reasonably priced ebook so you can read them all, and some extra original bits, all in one linear fashion.

      • Literally now, as you have typed that.

          What are you trying to say? Like it’s supernatural or summat?
