Another Out-Of-Turn Question of the Day

Hi ho! It's just me, stealing Brucker's duties again. I actually found this question by accident on one of Dawson's old posts. He said I should post it.

How do you explain to someone who claims to be "thinking God's thoughts after Him" that he's wrong?

Uhh... ask him to predict the future?

But then, of course, he would say that he's only thinking God's thoughts that relate to the present (unless, of course, he's trying to justify his decision to change job, move to a different city, etc).

Or maybe ask him to recite the first 1000 digits of pi. But then, maybe God isn't thinking about mathematics at that point.

Maybe the best way to undermine this claim is to ask how a noncorporeal entity is able to think. Everything we know about how "thought" works requres some kind of physical structure.

I can honestly say that I have never heard that turn of phrase before so I'm not sure exactly what it means. The fact that it makes absolutely no sense to me doesn't help. I guess that I would say "Is it true that god hears all prayers? Ok, then I am going to pray silently. You tell me what god heard."

Corollary: What is the sound of a fool praying silently? Same as one hand clapping only different?
