If science is religion, then I'm afraid all of those linguistics threads have
to go ...

There appears to've been quite some discussion on this. 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?' ...


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.

PPS Conlanger's version of above question - 'Can God create a language so
complex He cannot learn it?'.

PPPS All these postscripts are rather nullifying the effect of those three
dots above, methinks.
