God also can't intervene to prevent suffering.

If god cannot create thoughts, then he can't create.

Could you explain this?
I think I understand but at the same time I feel it's flawed...

Speaking of children's bone cancer, did you know that children get bone cancer because a person ate a piece of fruit 6,000 years ago?

"God" cannot explain now this is reasonable.

I think I understand but at the same time I feel it's flawed...

Imagine that nothing exists and before something can exist it must have a design drawn out in pencil on paper. That design (the thought) is then used to create that object. So where did the design for the pencil & paper come from if pencil & paper are required before something can be created ?

If god is the author of his own thoughts, the creator of his own thoughts and thought is required to create, then how can he create his thoughts ?

I admit it sounded flawed when I wrote it, but it all comes down to the idea of "what is a thought and how are they generated" ?

I don't know

OK I did understand, I think the wording of your original statement is what confused me.

God cannot dance... because he's supposedly everywhere so there's no room to move.

Omnipotent or not he either can't do it or doesn't choose to do it. In both cases there is a reason why he can't do it right now.
