3. Well I thinking knowing you can answer ALL of them...
might add some fun. And being omnicient and everpresent, the quantity wouldn't really be at issue.

9. "Yea,
Eat ye not the microwave, my child, nor the issue of the microwave. Rather, destroy the microwave, for it is an abomination in My sight.

Big shout out to all my seraphim."

10. The fallacy of God-hood . .
. . is that for any entity to act in any way, to make decisions, perform miracles, direct destiny, kill thousands using tsunamis or genocidal maniacs, whatever - they must first desire to do that.

An entity that is all-powerful, all-knowing, that never dies or faces the possibility of dieing - has nothing to fear or desire - and therefore has no reason to do any of those things.

Even amusement is a form of desire. But, what can even amuse an entity who never even faces the possibility of discomfort?

OTOH an entity who is not all-powerful, all-knowing, who can die and who faces that possibility - is mortal and therefore can not be a God.

14. Indeed.
God decides to create the universe.

Instantly, God knows every detail of every event that will occur in the universe from the beginning to the end of time.

"Well, guess I know how that turns out," says God. "Doesn't seem to be a lot of point in actually doing it now..."
