|Re "Can God create a rock so heavy he can't lift it?"|
Probably not, given that there is an upper limit on how large a rock can be and still be a rock, rather than say, a black hole. :)
I tried to argue with someone once that there were two possibilties. The omnipotence of god representing infinite energy and all he therefore had to be trapped as a singularity in a black hole. The other possibility was that he was totally impotent to act despite all his power, precisely because he had infinite energy he would have to use all his power to resist and prevent the gravitational collapse caused by that infinite energy thus leaving nothing remaining. The infinity-infinity=zero thingy was not exactly accurate transfinite mathematics but what the h3ll did the creobot know about transfinite mathematics anyway.
