God is a logical impossibility

000ike

This is designed to be a quick and straightforward debate. God: The divine author of all things; the creator of the universe and the laws thereof. An omniscient, and omnipotent being. At no point can this definition be questioned or altered by either side in the course of this debate. 5000 character limit, Round 1 is for acceptance. ...
