    Here is the issue. You are a god. Ok, you exist in all space and time simultaneously. So you know everything, mankind does not have free will because this god already knows us like a cinematographer knows every frame of a movie so he is god to that movie. All the charactors in the play is known inside and out and what they think of as free will is an illusion. But that is only the problem of mankind. The problem of such a god is one one level, we like to make god in our image or vice versa as some religions state. If god exists in all space and time then why would such a being have anything like skin, or color or sex organs. Sex organs. Now there is another issue: they are needed for
    CONTINUITY and secondly for pleasure. Since such a god would already be chuck full of continuity why would it need anything to codify continuity in the first place so there is no need to assign a sex to such a god as all religions do, whether its the eath MOTHER or the FATHER of creation, it is referred to as a she or a he, never an it. Tell me why such a god would need a continuity organ? So if it already exists in space and time everywhere/when then it would be safe to say it cannot experience time based phenomena like humans or any life form on earth. If it wants to it would have to have a part of itself as a laser/cd player and play part of itself to feel the concept of duration.

    Isn't that begging the question?

    I am trying to show the entire proposition as preposterous, there can be no such being.
    There very well may be beings we would consider gods if they came to us and told us they were gods but they would neccessarily be limited, they could not exist in all time and space at once, just one hell of a lot more personally powerful than us. That could be the result of galaxy wide evolution for instance. Perhaps like us, coming to a point in their scientific development to take over their own evolution which is what the human race is on the cusp of right now. A hundred or a thousand years from now it may well be possible to create, for instance, much improved and smaller and more energy efficient brain cells which could lead to such things as ten times the number of cells making up the matrix of our brain in the same volume and taking the same amount of energy. Think about the implications of that one.

    Why don't you just listen to the thrust of the argument rather than trying to tear down what you feel as logical inconsistancies.
    As they say, go with the flow and try to actually visualize what I am saying.
