The following is based on an epistemological dualistic construction created by a friend of mine. It has proffered a great deal of entertainment for us two, so for those who enjoy debate for its own sake, I messily present it here:
There exists an Abrahamic God who is practically, though not practicably omnibenevolent, omnipresent, omniscient, and omnipotent.
Of omnibenevolence: God is omnibenevolent in that what He declares to be benevolent, is necessarily so by definition, if not in physical reality before declaration.
Of omnipresence: God, by means direct or indirect, enacts, as a child does in the play of his own imagination, the movements of all conscious beings, whereby we ourselves are granted to behave. In this regard, the passage of time in the realm in which we exist is imperceptibly discontinuous.
Of omnipotence: God alone exists in the realm in which He resides; thus, God can do naught but to imagine in His own realm, by which means he can do aught in all others.
Of omniscience: God knows none of the nature of His own realm, as it is physically devoid. Thus, He knows nothing of His own future actions with certainty. His practical omnipotence lends that He can know all in any realm He creates by making it so. This rules out the ability to prove that we are predestined, but it grants that it is improbable that we are.
