    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    No, it can not be shown by any scientific and mathematical analysis, because the main premises of the any such equation, that is, the existence of God and also his creation of space-time and omniscience, can not be proven. Scriptures are also man written stories by unknown biased authors, not...

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    Am I anthropomorphizing God? You must be joking..:laughing: It is the theists who do that and claim that God being outside of time can see simultaneously past, present and future.. like you below... How exactly do you know the way God sees the future? Did he explained it to you personally?

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    Few posts earlier you accepted that God can see the future "as if it is now", therefore he can not change it. If he supposedly changes it, which is impossible, then he did not "see" the real future, nor is omniscient. I repeat ... He can not change the future he sees, otherwise he was seeing...

    "Saul(Paul) vowed to destroy all Christians throughout the world"

    You are aware of this, I suppose... "The Apostle Paul had a chronic disease. Epilepsy is offered as the most likely hypothesis. Interpretation of parts of the Pauline epistles suggests the possibility of facial motor and sensitive disturbances coming after ecstatic seizures. Though unusual...

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    Your problem is that you believe in something that it's existence can not be proven (God), neither it's attributes can ever be understood (according to theologians) and your as well as most older philosophers' writings were based on the assumption that he exists. Plato was the first philosopher...

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    So, if I didn't say that, then your question about philosophers' sayings that "knowledge means no free-will" is irrelevant and I treat it as such. I don't care how many times it can be repeated. The fact remains that if God can see the future, he can not change what he sees and therefore he has...

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    I never meant that. Stop manipulating my words please. I said if God knows the future, because he can see it happening now (as present), then he can not change what he sees and therefore does not have free will. Admit that you don't know if God is omniscient and the problem is solved, or give me...

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    You seem to know a lot about a God whose existence is in doubt and can not be proven, neither can be understood, according to all theologians. This is strawman.

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    I'm sorry, but this doesn't make any sense, at least to me. Either God can see the future, or he can't. If he can truly see what the future is, as if it is now, there is no reason for change (or free will for him), neither he can change anything. You seem to imply that God may change his mind...

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    No he doesn't, because this is what he already knew looking at his "time-monitor". He can not deviate from what he sees in the future, otherwise his "monitor" is/was faulty...:)

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    We do not know that he gave free will to humans. We suppose it. If God can not have free will, then neither have humans. The problem in theists' thinking is that God can see the future. 1 Samuel 15:29 "He who is the Glory of Israel does not lie or change his mind; for he is not a human being...

    "Saul(Paul) vowed to destroy all Christians throughout the world"

    I'm sorry but dream is defined as a series of thoughts, images, and sensations occurring in a person's mind during sleep.

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    If God - who can see the future as "now" - does not have free will, how is it possible for humans to have? How our actions can be free if they are already set in time, and even God can not change them? Because if he could change them, he would not have seen them as they were in the first place...

    God, Free-will, and the knowledge of God - Is his knowledge causation?

    OK, here is a different question. To borrow from theologians and theists, lets suppose for a moment that God is outside and above the Time-line. In that case, what we call "tomorrow" is visible to Him in just the same way as what we call "today". All the days are "Now" for Him. He does not...

    No, I used to be Chrsitian, but after studying the Bible, I became agnostic.

    The "Paul" that anti-Christians invented

    We don't need any other historical evidence for the character and the contradictions of Paul. It's all in the NT.

    The "Paul" that anti-Christians invented

    Don't worry about scholars; the Bible can contradict and cancel itself out without any help from 'learned critics". It's only people with blinkers who can not realize it.
