Hilarious argument on quora about God's omnipotence.
If God can do anything, can he make a rock so heavy he himself cannot lift it?
Matt Wayne, Lead Apologist (2010-present)
A rock would have to be infinitely large to defeat an infinite amount of lifting power. But an infinite rock is a contradiction since material objects cannot be infinite. Only God is infinite. There cannot be two infinities. So the question is actually asking if God can make a contradiction, which He cannot since it would be against His nature, which is pure logic. This question was only asked in order to ‘’trip up’’ Christians. However, it is the theist who trips on their own illogical nonsense.
JR:Maybe a better question: what would cause God to decide to make or not make such a rock?
Original Author Nothing because He has no interest in playing atheists games. One can accept Jesus Christ and have their sins washed away and receive eternal life, or go to Hell. We were all going there after the fall, God came to save us from this fate. It is a choice and asking stupid questions, playing mind games and mental ‘’traps’’ won’t change the choice. Hell or heaven…one must choose.
So, nothing caused God to make the decision. Yet he made it, because he doesn’t play atheist games. Damn, you got my head spinning, Matt! To me it sounds like something did cause him to make the decision then: the fact that he wanted to show that he doesn’t play atheist games.
And in some way, that means that atheists are MORE POWERFUL than Almighty God, because he just goes nuts, doing things for NO REASON just to piss off us logically-minded atheists.
The sad part is that us atheists are going to Hell because of how much we have angered God with our logic. And what is the reason God chooses to send us to eternal hell fire and torment? “No reason!”
