    You havn't answered the question, what if what god 'knew' was to happen, didn't happen?
    I did answer the question. I answered with "you're not getting the idea of an atemporal God". God exists outside linear time - He sees everything that ever will happen, as it did happen. Thus, the idea of Him seeing a "wrong" future, is really a moot point.

    If god knows what will happen, and can change it, we do not have free will. If he doesn't change it, but can, he is allowing evil to happen. If he can't change it, he is not all powerful.

    There's no point, its all a bit to sci-fi for me to be honest.
