The latest theologian I consulted held that, no, omnipotence does not imply being able to defy logical impossibility. I'll leave you with the question 'Can an omnipotent God create a rock so big He cannot lift it?' ... Andreas PS Why doesn't there seem to be any feminists on the list? Despite the disagreements we have on everything from Tagalog grammar to the existence of Arhats, one can apparently refer to God with masculine pronouns here without drawing any flak whatsoever.
