Then speak more clearly. Several posts suggested something different than what you claim you said.
Or you just think we say what your propaganda tells you we think. At least this is what so many of your answers look like.

This question is answered differently than you desire. The answer is: there is no purpose for God to create a rock to simply pick it up. He only creates things that have a purpose that fits in with His will. It is not His will to test Himself, or have you attempt to test Him.
Then the answer is no, god cannot do anything. He does what he wants to do.
But you guys were not willing to admit the god could not do something.
Just try answering the darned questions and quit dancing around and maybe you will get a bit more respect.

BTW, how can you know what size rocks god needs to create? How can you know what size rocks god can lift?
How can you know god does not test himself?
Point is, you guys seem to just invent what god does, and this is a great example of this. This is why I think the entire idea of god is simply of mans imagination.

Well, that was disappointing. I've seen you dodge better than this before. It isn't a question of "why hasn't he?" it's a question of "could he?".
They answer the questions they wished we asked.

I think they need to do something more worthwhile and enact a Federal law protecting male and female minors 18 and under, from the varying realms of corruptness (including sexual predators and perversion pushers) to anything over 18.

Kids might actually learn something worth learning about again then!

IS that like the idiots that try and speak for what they *only* pressume to know what others think, but really have no clue, due to existing in cosmical states of abject ignorance themselves?

Cause yeah, that kind of stuff is really pretty pathetic.

You are confusing the *idea* of a god with the *reality* of a god. The reason there is even a word like "atheism" is because a lot of people believe in god, not because god is real.
Do you see what I mean?
A common quip you hear is that not believing in god is like not collecting stamps. Yet there is no special word for a "non-stamp collector". This is because belief in magic runs deep in humans. Once we evolved the ability to think about other minds besides our own we have had this need for explanations. In the absence of the ability to answer questions, such as why the sun rises, we fill that void of knowledge with the idea of some "other mind" that is beyond humans.
God.
And the idea has been so central to our lives that we have forums like this to argue over it.
What is this magic that you are referring to?

Is that like believing that nothing created something from nothing and thus the creation of the Universe and everything therein?

Shallow thinkers should not attempt to analyze deep subjects,lest they drown in their ignorance.
A fool can take a statement out of context and make it appear idiotic to those who frequent freak shows in order to establish a reliable belief system.

Atheism and suicide
From Conservapedia

Concerning atheism and suicide, although there are recent studies relating to atheism being a causal factor for suicide in some individuals, an early proponent of atheism being a causal factor for suicide in some individuals was the Reverend Dr. Robert Stuart MacArthur.[1][2][3]

In 1894, the NY Times declared regarding atheism and suicide:

Dr. Martin urged that a great cause of suicide was atheism. It was, he said, a remarkable fact that where atheism prevailed most, there suicides were most numerous. In Paris, a recent census showed one suicide to every 2,700 of the population. After the publication of Paine's "Age of Reason" suicides increased.[4]

The same NY Times article quotes the Reverend Dr. MacArthur describing suicide in the following manner:

It is mean and not manly; it is dastardly and not daring. A man who involves his innocent wife and children in financial disaster and disgrace and takes his life and leaves them to bear the burden he was unwilling to bear, is a coward.[5]

In 2004, the American Journal of Psychiatry reported the following:

Religiously unaffiliated subjects had significantly more lifetime suicide attempts and more first-degree relatives who committed suicide than subjects who endorsed a religious affiliation. Unaffiliated subjects were younger, less often married, less often had children, and had less contact with family members. Furthermore, subjects with no religious affiliation perceived fewer reasons for living, particularly fewer moral objections to suicide. In terms of clinical characteristics, religiously unaffiliated subjects had more lifetime impulsivity, aggression, and past substance use disorder. No differences in the level of subjective and objective depression, hopelessness, or stressful life events were found.[6]

The website Adherents.com reported the following in respect to atheism and suicide:

Pitzer College sociologist Phil Zuckerman compiled country-by-country survey, polling and census numbers relating to atheism, agnosticism, disbelief in God and people who state they are non-religious or have no religious preference. These data were published in the chapter titled "Atheism: Contemporary Rates and Patterns" in The Cambridge Companion to Atheism, ed. by Michael Martin, Cambridge University Press: Cambridge, UK (2005). In examining various indicators of societal health, Zuckerman concludes about suicide:
"Concerning suicide rates, this is the one indicator of societal health in which religious nations fare much better than secular nations. According to the 2003 World Health Organization's report on international male suicides rates (which compared 100 countries), of the top ten nations with the highest male suicide rates, all but one (Sri Lanka) are strongly irreligious nations with high levels of atheism. It is interesting to note, however, that of the top remaining nine nations leading the world in male suicide rates, all are former Soviet/Communist nations, such as Belarus, Ukraine, and Latvia. Of the bottom ten nations with the lowest male suicide rates, all are highly religious nations with statistically insignificant levels of organic atheism

There is No Such Construct as a "reliable belief system" and it why I use the "Know, Think I Know, Or Do Not Know" system.... It is inherently reliable.....

Most Deep Thinker get stuck in their navels.......
