#1."There is only one God."

Any evidence, why ONLY ONE? (And any evidence of even one?)

#2."God is the creator of everything (including himself)."

The theological problem of creator of creator reminds me the following dialogue:
Boy: What does the turtle holding Earth stand on?
Old lady: Smart boy - but you won't fool me - there are turtles all the way down!

So, may be there are CREATORS ALL THE WAY BACK?

(Hm, but this contradicts to the 1st statement that there is only 1 god.)

#3."God rules everything."

Really? Newton laws rule motion, gravitation rules orbiting and transformation of matter in stars, SR rules fast motion, Shred rules small object motion, Maxwell - electromagnetism, etc. So, what is left for gods - practically nothing. and the more science discovers, the less superstitions (in gods or other forms) we need. In ancient times we needed gods behind each and every moving body (like Sun or clouds). Now - way less.

#4."God lovingly continues to keep the world going."

Lovingly? Holocausts, deseases, unjustice, corruption, violence, murder,acts of god, etc... - where is loving God?

#5."God lives for ever, and has always been alive."

Life as we know can not last forever.

#6"God doesn't hate, and is never afraid."

Really? See the comment to #4 then.

#7 "God has no form or shape at all."

So, how does he interact with the Universe then? If he is out of shape - he is not observable by any means and not interacting at all - he then can not influence anything in the Universe at all. Why to worry then?

#8 "God cannot be described in any way."

Agree completely - this means that God is non-physical=non existing (exists only in some people imagination).

#9 "God never takes the form of a human being."

Hm, but the Bible written by God says: "And God created a man by his image" - words of God himself.

#10 "God is neither male nor female."

Then how did he impregnate Mary with His son?

#11 "Human beings can know God because God reveals himself to us."

As you have seen above, Bible and other books are NOT God's revelation (too many lies), but mere primitive human myths, which educated person would not consider more serious than early example of sci-fi literature with description of some local historic events.
