Looks like your belief system is so pathetic you have resorted to stealing my identity.

Moral victory to me.

You're lying for jesus.

Hey, God knows you bwefore you were even a twinkle in your parent's eye. God knows you more than you know yourself. God knows how many hairs are on your head, when you will die to the exact milisecond, God knows what you are going to do before you do it.

So there is no free will and therefore no excuse for god to allow suffering.

Why is it "wishful thinking"?
For the same reason it's nothing more than wishful thinking to say that if you don't eat lima beans, the invisible pink unicorn at the center of the Earth will cast your soul into a lake of magical monkey poo in the center of the sun after you die.

As soon as you can demonstrate why yours is true, I'll demonstrate why mine is. Or, if you want to play it the other way: if you can demonstrate why mine is not true, I'll demonstrate why yours isn't, either.

And we are powerless to do anything other than what God already knows we will do, right?

Phelpsian Calvinism. You do realize you're employing the same argument the Westboro Baptist Church uses, right? You do realize that your God's omnipotence, as you describe it, negates any possibility of our free will, yes?

Most "globally recognized history" is inaccurate? Great. Let's play that game.

Which, if any, of the following are globally recognized historical events that are inaccurate depictions of historical reality?

A: Holocaust
B: Iraq/WMD/September 11th
C: Obama was born in Hawaii

Frickin moron.
We were married in September of 2007 in New Jersey, and then again in California in July of 2008. OK so that's more than "a few" months. So sue me.
If none of them were legal, we are married. A tree is a tree even if the government doesn't recognize it as a tree. Reality is reality. We were married, therefore we are married.
You'll just have to deal with that, bitch.
Why would wwaste out time suing you. First, a tree is a tree and calling a dog a tree does not make it a tree. When you marry a woman, you being a man, then that is a marriage. You can get legally treed and call your union a tree. Fact is, you are only married in your mental illness state.

Of course you know you are going to hell, so that is not up for discussion. God does not call it a marriage,how could he, neither does your state.

By the way, let Rose TH know that you left California along with about 6,000 other fake same sex mirages.

By the way, we have assigned it a name it is called "same sex mirages". They are just as real as a mirage.

Why not,since you are employing the same logic that NAMBLA and gay pedophiles empoy. You do know that nothing you gays do is outside what NAMBLA told you to do.

Also, omnipotence has nothing to do with freewill. Are you claiming to be omnipotent, because you can look back in time and predict what you did? Boy, you gays are jusr dumb. Get smart.

Sweetie, Jesus Himself said that some folk are going to get the message that despite their certainty to the contrary, He never knew them. I was just passing that message along to someone who I see as really, really needing it.

I agree. Whites and blacks together aren't REAL marriages. The definition of marriage according to the law was clear, and someone tried to redefine the term, but that attempted redefinition doesn't change facts: race-mixing is antithetical to God's plan and is not marriage. EVER.

Do we have the free will to choose to do something contrary to your God's knowledge about what we will do? Are we predestined to do what your God knows we will do, or is it possible to surprise your God by exerting our free will to contradict his understanding of what we will do?

If we can't avoid doing what God already knows what we will do, then we have only an illusion of free will. An illusion of free will is no free will at all.

Did you know Moses had an interracial marriage?

That was a rhetorical question.

Tomorrow is Thursday.

My neighbor will come home late from work and unload groceries.

How does my knowledge of what she will do undermine her free will?

Idiot.

Even if your neighbor is OCD, she can still make the choice to do something different and NOT get groceries tomorrow. She could end up working far too late to stop, or she could get hit by a bus. As such, you do NOT "know" exactly what your neighbor will do. The theoretical degree knowledge attributed to God is such that He knows the exact content of the grocery bags, down to the exact number of grains of rice in the package. As such, if this information is known in advance by God, does your neighbor really have the free will to pick which groceries she wants? If God already knows how many grains of rice are in the package, can she change her mind and get spaghetti instead?
