The question is nonsense. You are asking if God can create a lift-able/unlift-able boulder. The nonsense here doesn't magically disappear because you put the words "God can" in front of it.
Use questions that actually make sense to investigate the nature of God.
Someone doesn't understand omnipotence...
I am not accountable to any God. I am accountable to myself - and not because I think I am God as some theists would try to assert - but because, no matter what actions I take, thoughts I think, or words I utter, I have to be able to live with myself.
