If God did try to speak to us, would we even recognize or accept it?

RE: If God did try to speak to us, would we even recognize or accept it?
Several different ideas of what it would take to convince different posters. Nobody is quite the same.

Here's the kicker.

Omniscient God knows, KNOWS, exactly what will convince each of us, perfectly, inerrantly, absolutely. Seven billion people on the planet, and he knows all seven billion perfect convincing proofs as easily as he numbers the hairs on our seven billion heads (Matthew 10:30, Luke 12:7).

Omnipotent God can instantly, flawlessly, perfectly send all seven billion communications to each of us, simultaneously, without breaking a sweat or making a mistake. Between one beat of your heart and the next, you, and all seven billion other humans could be instantly, perfectly, inerrantly convinced of the existence of God - whatever your specific convincing revelation needs to be.

So the whole discussion is irrelevant.

God isn't doing this, so either he can't (in which case he's not the omni-bitchin God the Christians claim he is) or he won't (in which case he's a dick and almost all seven billion of us are going to burn in hell for eternity because God's a dick), or he doesn't exist.

I'll take any old razor on this one, Occam's or not:

1. If he's not omni-bitchin, then he didn't create the universe and all the stuff in it, so who cares?
2. If he's a dick, he wouldn't have bothered to create the universe, he could be a dick in much easier and much more creative ways than this.
3. So he doesn't exist.
