    God had human attributes and it knows about wine, ALL about wine, so it stands to reason it could just drink too much and get drunk. Could that explain why it was regretful after the flood and maybe loss of memory like when it should have known the outcome of Ab's test?

    And with his son turning water into wine the temptation to have one too many must be irresistible!

    But seriously ... omniscience must include knowledge of everything - including the
    sensation of being drunk. So god has been drunk at least once. What did he do?

    1. Create the Universe.
    2. Create Man.
    3. Sleep with that Ugly bird Mary.

    But what if it's the other way round: there's no God, just the devil when he's sober?

    God would not get drunk because He believes in moderation. 😏

    HalleluYaH !!! Praise the LORD! Holy! Holy! Holy!

    He told everyone that has bothered to read His word in the Holy Bible. If you where to read it all then maybe you will be well informed like ....

    No, there's a paradox you've missed. God being God is invulnerable and therefore can withstand any amount of alcohol. However being God and omnipotent he can also produce wine of such incredible potency that one glass will render any who drink it insensible. So, if God cannot succeed in becoming drunk his omnipotence is compromised and if he can his invulnerability (implied by omnipotence) is compromised. Moderation doesn't resolve the paradox as it's possibility is enough.

    You have it backwards. Man was created with God like attributes.

    And you can bet your as$ He can drink you under the table! 😉

    Does god know the feeling of complete drunkenness?
    If not that would compromise his omniscience.
    If so then he would be capable of anything in his drunken state. (Like DUI)

    Well, if God is omniscient, then it stands to reason He is also omnipotent. If God is omnipotent, then it stands to reason nothing can resist Him. If Nothing can resist God, then it stands to reason nothing can cause an effect on Him.

    God is omniscient. 🙂

    If your god is omniscient why does he have to administer all those tests to mankind, since being omniscient, it would know the outcome before it even created the universe much less just before it administered the test, like will Ab off his son to prove his worthiness? and so forth.
