A thought on the omnipotence paradox.
I was debating at the FTT forum and I came up with this (I don't know if this has already been brought up before):
The old question: can an omnipotent god create a rock so heavy that he cannot lift it?
Most theists will say that god cannot do things that are impossible, and that his omnipotence only applies to things that are logically possible.
The problem here is that this is an attempt to make god fit into the realms of logic, but a lot of theists also claim that god is outside or beyond logic.
If god is within the realms of logic, then he is limited. Logic is superior to god.
If god is beyond logic, then he should be able to do things that are beyond logic, including creating a rock so heavy he cannot lift it. When the theist claims that god's omnipotence applies to only logically possible things, then the theist is saying that god is limited to logic. Which means that logic is superior to god.
If logic comes from our minds, then are these "limits" on god's omnipotence limited to our heads also?
I have a feeling that there is a flaw here.
