Omnipotence Paradox - Can God Create a Stone He Cannot Lift?


The so-called paradox of the stone asks: "Could God (Who is omnipotent) create a stone so heavy that He could not lift it?" If so, then He cannot be omnipotent; if not, then He is not omnipotent.


The comparative "heavier" doesn't apply to infinity; therefore, the question is contradictory and, consequently, meaningless.

1. Infinity is that which is without a beginning, a middle, and an end. Therefore, internal comparisons don't apply to it.
2. Only a greater infinite can supercede an infinite; but, "a greater infinite" is a meaningless category, since infinite is the maximal superlative.
