I think cost is a major factor. I have no idea how they plan on enforcing search engines pay for content. I think it's a terrible idea if publishers are planning to expand their reader base. Bloggers are exempt, so i wonder if a google snippet of a blog would be cause for a payment.

There is a big problem, the gravitational kind. A big stone is essentially a planet. Exactly where is he to anchor his feet to lift this stone up? How would natual laws apply. How would this affect the universe? Would he create the stone inside the universe? God cannot lift such a stone because he doesn't have the means.

This whole argument has been iterated many times before. I feel one can only really assume a god exists. It is impossible to know. For one usually defines god as something that cannot be known and something that is outside our perspective, as a whole. The whole spiritual world cannot be known because it cannot be seen, measured or detected. So for arguments sake it's best to leave it out entirely. For we can only ever speculate. This is my problem in it's entireity. So many things have to be speculated on. An argument made for a god can be applied to any god.
