God being honest and allknowing ... impossible

This is my first try to create a youtube video. It turns out that an essentially easy topic is not so easily put into images...

I could need some critique and help. For those that dont understand the video i have a small explanation below.

Ok... here is the original thought...
Although god might be allknowing in the sense that he knows all that is knowable ... he couldnt possibly be sure to be allknowing. There is no difference in perception between something that doesnt exist and something that we couldnt detect if it existed. The same applies for knowledge.You cant differentiate between the situation in which knowledge exists but you cant possibly know about it and the situation in which no further knowledge exist.

Allknowingness does not include the knowledge that one is allknowing. This in itself is no problem.
It becomes a problem when you postulate an HONEST being that is NOT stupid and that tells you that it is allknowing. This simply cant be. You cant honestly claim to be allknowing because THEN you have the problem that you claim that allknowingness would include knowledge about itself.


  1. Dear Mr T. Mauritanica

    To promote skepticism/critical thinking I wrote some questions for the Christian believer. Are you able to put the link to these questions at your blog.

    Thank you very much,
