A too much powerful God leads to inconsistency.
What if reality does not always obey the laws of logic? What if
reality is sometimes inconsistent?
This is a confusion of levels. Logic is rules about truth
preservation in declarative sentences. Not 'obeying the laws of
logic' just means declaring inconsistent sentences. We try to avoid
this because such utterances would have no determinate meaning. So a
*descriptions* of reality may be inconsistent (and therefore useless)
but reality is just whatever it is. It can't be inconsistent because
it's not assertions.
This could work provided we could separate the world into mental and
physical states. The question remains though if under physicalism one
says that mental states are actually physical states. Then I do not know
how to employ such a consideration in this case.
