As an atheist, I find the notion of an omniscient deity hilarious. Why? Try this simple logical exercise:
- An omniscient deity sees everything.
- At any given time, there will be depraved people watching child pornography.
- Every time someone is watching child pornography, an omniscient deity watches it too.
- In fact, an omniscient deity not only watches the porn, but watches the creation of the porn.
Do you really want to pray to something that watches children being molested, and then watches the documentary evidence of it later?
I know I don’t.
