I was debating with this dude and I asked some questions that went along these lines (read the blog).
I thought they were interesting so I couldn't pass up the opportunity to show off in this forum. I do acknowledge the possibility that some of these questions, if not all, might be considered
...utterly insane and useless.
When someone states their beliefs on the existence of God and expresses with confidence opinions on God's attributes (which implies a certain individual received a special and quite unique revelation); what is it that make people say "I believe God exists" instead of what would seem more logical "I believe at least one God exists"?
This might appear redundant but doesn't the phrase "I believe God exists" suggests the existence of One God. What is the condition that forbids the existence of two omnipotent, omnipresent and omniscient Gods? Obviously, deities aren't bound by normal laws of locality.
Some theists (I am anticipating criticisms from you bozos) might argue the following: and I summarize [This universe is part of God, a manifestation of sorts]. I'm thinking that since this universe exists within God, it's easy to reply another omnipresent God would be impossible or wouldn't have any "state of existence" to occupy. This universe is only possible because it is indeed a manifestation of some localized omnipresence. This means there can only be one continuum or plane of reality in which a God dwells entirely. What if then there were two continuum or two planes of reality in which two Gods exists therefore eliminating the dilemma of omnipresence?
How about two Gods existing in one continuum with their omnipresence overlapping?
In quantum mechanics, a particle can exist in two places instantaneously.
How about two demiurge Gods that helped each other during the moment of creation (for the hell of it, or for fun) without them necessarily being limited in their power and knowledge?
How about two Gods confined in two separate finite locations in their plane of existence but only their non corporeal awareness is omnipresent? Like a human that knows everything on this planet earth except more fascinating and simultaneous?
Confusing, one might think I'm talking about omniscience. I have to emphasize that it's their thoughts that are aware of all absolute states of existing and and it's this awareness that takes over every facet of reality producing the omnipresence. Like internet** which can potentially hold all knowledge of Humanity and possibly the universe but needs a few interconnected network of computers to run. Horrible analogy, I hope you know where I'm getting at.
If two omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient Gods are possible, why do people say "I believe God exists" instead of "I believe at least one God exists"?
I await your answers.
**infinite with no spacial vacuum, debatable but for the sake of argument let's say it is so.
