I have no theological stake in this argument, but I always do love hearing the debate over this.

No.

It's not that he wouldn't have the power, the problem is "God can't ____" is a erroneous statement by the definition of 'God'.

English does not have a word for what you do to do a dead thing to make it stop chasing you. Clearly, you cannot kill that which is dead. But until Mr. Webster comes up with replacement, we are forced to render dead that which is dead. - Just Call Me Fed

COULD JESUS MICROWAVE A BURRITO SO HOT HE COULD NOT EAT IT :D?

Now that the obligatoriy Simpsons reference is done...


'That which is of a parodoxical nature is not part of the power of God.' Or something of the like.

Meh.

If God could make a rock so big that he could not lift it, then God would have a self-contradictory property. Anything which is self-contradictory cannot be thought to be real. Thus God cannot have the property of omnipotence.

Such are my thoughts.

I ain't a vir (in fact I am rather daft). As a Theist, I am here only to inform - don't be offended. For you have to admit - God, though he is real, cannot be onmipotent.

Stop talking. Take a philosophy course. <p><span style="font-size:xx-small;">"It's in the air, in the headlines in the newspapers, in the blurry images on television.
