  •  Have you read Genesis? In that book, God is not (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    omnipotent nor omniscient. In fact, Abraham argues with him and God agrees to back off on his threat to destroy the cities of the plain. And, in one scene, God shows up with his entourage at Abraham's house and Abe doesn't recognize him.
       And God seems to be one of several - he is called elohim, a plural form. Adam and Eve have to be kicked out of Eden lest they eat of the Tree of Life and "become as one of us."
       The Genesis God is anthropomorphic and can be fooled.
