I think not......The question is whether God can create a God more powerful than himself. Another question is whether God cna create a weapon powerful enough to kill himself...
If he can create such a weapon, then he is not omnipotent because the surviviablity and infinite (time) nature of God is challenged. If he cannot create such a weapon then there are limits to God's powers. If there are limits to God's powers, then he is not in control of everything and therefore not omnipotent.
I read this argument somewhere....the logic is unquestionable. I dont believe in God, but can appreciate a good logical argument. Some others are:
By definition omnipotent means "all powerful" therefore the question represents a paradox. If God is "all-powerful" he should be able to anything, but therein lies the rub and shows why infinity is not a number. Here's why it is a paradox:
1. If God can create a rock too heavy for him to lift, then He/She is not omnipotent—is not all-powerful—because He/She has demonstrated a limit to their power simply by being unable to pick up the rock they created.
2. If God cannot create such a rock then He/She is not omnipotent—not all powerful—because He/She has demonstrated another limitation to their power.
1. Can God create another God more powerful than Him/Herself?
If He/She can, then there is another level of power than the one possessed by God—and therefore, must abdicate the claim of omnipotence. If He/She cannot, then Her/His powers are limited in what they can create. This means that omnipotence is a null word.
