1. To say God is omniscient is to say that he knows everything, and to know everything clearly implies knowing the future. God cannot know the future unless he knows how one will decide in every situation long before the decision takes place, and if God knows this, then the decision could not have been otherwise. Yet, if humans have free will, they have the power of choice. Choice implies the ability to do more than one thing in a given situation, which implies that whatever decision is reached could have been otherwise. It follows that either God is not omniscient or humans do not have free will. (O: God is omniscient; E: God knows everything; K: God knows the future; B: God knows decisions beforehand; Q: Decisions could have been otherwise; F = Humans have free will; D = Humans can do more than one thing in a given situation)
