God cannot...
A favorite dodge of theists when confronted with a logical impossibility is to say "God can...". I thought it might be fun to list things that God cannot do which even theists will have to agree with. It might also make sense to explain why the statement is true, I'll start off with:

God cannot create another God just like him, for then one would be created and the other not.

God cannot reveal too many specific details about himself, for then he will lose his vagueness that enables so many followers to twist their beliefs around.

“Truth does not demand belief. Scientists do not join hands every Sunday, singing, yes, gravity is real! I will have faith! I will be strong! I believe in my heart that what goes up, up, up, must come down, down, down. Amen! If they did, we would think they were pretty insecure about it.”

God cannot make a rock so heavy that he can not lift it.

If God knows everything, can he change his mind?

God Cannot be trusted.

Theism is to believe what other people claim, Atheism is to ask "why should I".

God cannot cure all bone cancer in children, for then he would render man's sin and perpetual fall less effective tools for maintaining states of delusion.

God can/could not get his thoughts across well enough to divinely inspire a book that makes any sense.

God cannot prove his own existence, because apparently he does not believe in informed decision making.

God cannot create a thought, because thought is a prerequisite to creation.
If god cannot create thoughts, then he can't create.
