some say that the big bang is ridiculous since something comes from nth is impossible.
1.But consider this: if the time of day one is t=0, what is he doing before that??
2.God can just make the non believer believe him using the 'mighty power' why doesn't he do that?
3.Can he create a stone that he cannot lift? [the paradox]

1. Consider this - What were people doing before Year 0 AD? Saying t=0 during big bang is arbitrary; the same that Year 0 AD is arbitrary.

2. God does not have to do anything. He just needs everyone to die.
How else can he vindictively say to those in Hell - "I told you so"

3. Leonardo Da Vinci can not make a circle which is also a square.
Does this mean that Leonardo Da Vinci does not exist?

In a similar fashion, just because God did not meet your expectations, it does not mean it does not exist.

Well the whole point about year 0 is irrelevant. God by definition doesn't exist within the boundaries of time, meaning that there was no "before the universe." The timeline of the universe is created within the realm of God's power in timeless space known as eternity. He assigns it time, but he does not live according to time.

Pro thinks that there was such a thing as year 0. Cute.

As for point three, I like how C.S Lewis says it.

"meaningless combinations of words do not suddenly acquire meaning simply because we prefix to them the two other words, 'God can. ... nonsense remains nonsense even when we talk it about God". (Problem of Pain)
