Re: God capable of logical impossibilities?
So, what you seem to be saying is that God is logically-impossible.

Re: God capable of logical impossibilities?

I'd say that you can't really maintain the definition of omnipotence if you not going to allow it to include logical impossibilities.
Well, just about every major theologian disagrees with you.
The problem is that you cannot escape the logical implications in the definition of "omnipotence".
"Omnipotence" as a concept is inescapably subject to logic.
It is simply incoherent and meaningless to say that god is powerless and omnipotent at the same time.
