Re: Reasons to want theism to be false?

I'm thinking of things like, "I wouldn't want a God to exist, because an all knowing God would destroy all privacy". What here comes to my mind is, that an all knowing god cannot be allmighty. If God is all knowing, then all processes are defined (fixed?) in the universe, from the big bang to the e...

Re: Nomina Sacra: Their Origin and Usefulness

If so, why does this happen in Sinaiticus but not in other manuscripts, where the person speaking is also there "a young man" and not God?
