ny2, you don't need to apologize for the way you articulated your ideas, don't mind those old curmudgeons and just stick to the discussion you're trying to have. They'll derail anything they can if given the chance. Don't take the bait!

I for one think it's interesting to reason in the hypothetical and you shouldn't have to type a disclaimer in bold red font before delving into such territory.

I have a theory that the only thing powerful enough to control an omnipotent being from destroying itself is omnibenevolence.  Without omnibenevolence there is room to be selfish, and if an omnipotent being is a little selfish, he could potentially unleash an infinite amount of power to obtain something for itself, and in doing so destroy everthing.  That is unless it loved everything so much that it was incapable of doing this.




New little twist on the topic here;  Would it not make sense that an omnipotent, selfish being, take God for example, would need to create an omnibenevolent being - Christ? Without doing so, how would he deal with humans; the only species on the planet capable of evil? We wouldn't have a reason to live, and if we still did we wouldn't be able to sin, which means we'd think more like monkeys than people. I didn't just say something about evolution did I???? :stoned:
