    Since you guys love those paradoxs....

    ....try this one! If there was an all powerful being, that can do ANYTHING it wanted too, could it create a rock too heavy for it to lift? Lets hear some theories on it !

    Yes it could, but then when it really wanted to it would be able to. You didn't say it had to stay too heavy

    I'm suprised the human spell checker, confuted, has not caught the error in your signature, RoD.

    Actually, the answer is 42.

    And to answer that paradox from a Christian perspective, one need only say that God is ineffable, and thus his awesome power and such cannot be comprehended by us mortals.

    Well based on what I have heard about god, he can do anything. If he can create matter he can certainly move it. If a comet can change the rotation of a planet I would just have to assume that if God existed then he certainly could move anything
