    I'm an atheist, but if God existed, would he ever ponder on the following:

    Why do I exist?

    What's it all about?

    Shall I die?

    If I shall die, what's the point?

    If I don't die, what's the point?

    Why don't I just end it all?

    Those questions would be incoherent.

    I think the poster is trying to ennunciate the idea of "can God ask a question to which he doesn't know the answer?"

    Why not?

    I guess many would say that it would contravene God's omniscience.

    However, NOT being able to do something would compromise either God's omnipotence, or his free will. Or both.

    Also, could God commit suicide? If not, why not (with the above in mind)?

    God (I think, since none of us are God) would not commit suicide because it's evil and He won't commit an evil act. As for the other exercises in futility, God COULD do anything--He simply chooses not to do some things---such as committing suicide, asking unanswerable questions or manufacturing gargantuan boulders.

    So God can defy logic?

    That sounds a lot like saying God is not a being which exists within the confines of logic, which would lead to any "logical" arguments for God being negated.

    Also, why of suicide evil?

    Whilst I agree with your point, your evidence for the statement appears to be wholey lacking.

    I think that would be incoherent with most definitions of God. Certainly it is incoherent with Knightmeisters eternal God but then his God is incoherent already 🙂
    If God is eternal then he cannot change that. Suicide (if it is to be meaningful for a non living being) must imply the existence of a time in which that being is non-existent. If all time is a subset of God then such an idea would simply not make sense.
