Play a game with God

The Philosopher's Magazine has two interesting little games you can play. The first is 'Do-it-yourself-Deity,' the point of which is to construct your own deity out of various possible characteristics. Try omnipotence and omniscience and omnibenevolence and stir. Try to see just how consistent your deity is.

When you've done that, take your Deity through 'Battleground God.' Here you take whatever conception of God you have, and see if your God can go through a series of questions without taking any bullets, or logical inconsistencies. Have fun, and avoid blasphemy.

(And I've lived in Virginia, and Vermont. Visited Florida, Washington D.C., Alabama, Pennsylvania, Ohio, Illinois, North and South Virginia, Georgia, California, Tennessee, and Connecticut. I think that's about it.)
