I never read your post arun.
What I wrote is exactly how I figured it out.
I wrote down who was telling the truth in that situation, and then went through and wrote how it might or might not be right.
Then I copied and pasted it from my TextEdit window, and added the ( parenthesis) so that the readers know what's going on in my mind.
Alpha says - I am the true god, believe me.
Beta says - Alpha is lying, I am the true god.
Gamma says - What a load of shit. Beta is not the god. I am the true god.
I'm never good at riddles I poke holes through all the logic faults rather than getting into it and thinking according to the rules of the game.
My viewpoint is, there's no reason to believe any of them, can't anyone say they're "God"?
For my beliefs, when God is present, all others would be compelled to praise/acknowledge him at the moment, so it seems ridiculous to me that if any of them were the true God they'd all go about denying eachother
Connor's reasoning is good for the realm of a riddle but even then, why should it be believed that Beta is telling any truth at all since he could be lying in stating in addition "I am the true god". Sigh I don't like answering based on assumptions...
So two are lying is the principle. But I see it as all three are lying regardless even if certain reasoning can lead to be beta, I still see it that way =l
