The point being if something looks like a question and sounds like a question it does not mean it is a question.
A logical as that sounds as a question, it is actually an excercise in nonsensical recognition.
This is like asking the classic question of:
If a chicken and a half can lay an egg and a half in a day and a half.
How many pancakes would it take to shingle a dog house?
The first part of the Question:
1. Is God correct because he is God?
Now to a person that is not educated or has very limited knowledge, that looks like a question. But is it? Is it a question or is a nonsence phrase under the grammatical formation of a question.
Place any other quality in place of correct, let the quality be either true, false or nonsence. The question does not pass the scrutiny of being able to be replaced with other qualities and sound rational.
Is God tall because he is God?
Is God purple because he is God?
Is God strong because he is God?
Any quality can be placed in there and the problem is we still do not have a question, we have a statement that is based upon cause and effect when what we have is state of being and neither a condition of cause and effect.
Question 2 is a fallacy. By definition of a supreme God, there can only be one God, so question two is a moot point as it is an impossibility by definition.
Children playing in philosophy 101 only serve to illustrate their own ignorance by their inability to formulate legitimate questions. The simplest fool can ask more questions than the wisest man can answer.
