RE: Peer review my thinking
Let's say that the earth/heaven/hell/god system is thermodynamically closed. Does that make the proposition in the OP invalid? Also "because magic", entropy doesn't have to increase in the system as a whole. Or maybe, it does and that's why hell exists - as an infinite entropy sink.

Give me your argument in the form of a published paper, and then we can start to talk.

RE: Peer review my thinking
Your thinking involves making up a hypothetical assumption about the universe and giving attributes to what a god can or cannot accomplish.

As an engineer do you try to factor in how many leprechauns might be crossing a bridge at any given time ? Does that add in to any of your calculations ?

What if this universe is entangled with another universe ?

In other words, you can make up all kinds of hypotheticals, but it's best if we observe what is and focus on where that information can lead us, instead of injecting an impossible being or unlikely situations into the mix

RE: Peer review my thinking
Another problem is that although the universe may be a closed thermodynamic system, if we presume that souls exist and are immaterial then why must we assume that immaterial objects would be bound by thermodynamic laws which relate to material objects.

I'm homophobic in the same way that I'm arachnophobic. I'm not scared of gay people but I'm going to scream if I find one in my bath.

I'm. Also homophobic in the same way I'm arachnophobic. I'm scared of spiders but I'd still fuck'em.

Why the hell would we presume that?

It's "physics," not "physic." "Physic" is a synonym for "enema."

A "physician" is a medical doctor. He/she might give you a physic. A practitioner of physics is a "physicist."

For what it's worth, I am a physicist. I used to get all kinds of mail from people who thought I was a medical doctor.

RE: Peer review my thinking
You can't start proving anything with "let's say" , so I kinda stopped reading there.

But welcome to the forum.

Because part of the op argument requires the existence of souls which are often seen as being immaterial.
