It's a paradox. Anyone that is omnipotent cannot do both. It's my twist on the old "rock so large" question. Either he is unable to squeeze forth so rancid a butt bomb, or he would be unable to breathe the putrid stench. Whichever it may be, indicates a short-coming and, therefore, no omnipotence. Proving that the concept of omnipotence is illusory.

All I'm thinking about right now is how many synonyms we have for the word "fart". I wonder if it's like "penis" where you could make just about anything synonymous... Consider

Also, just because I'm bored:
God Fart

God cannot lie.

However, in 1 Kings 22:19–-22, the prophet Micaiah describes the sending of a lying spirit by God into the mouths of the prophets of Ahab, the king of Israel, to give him false assurance of victory in order to tempt him into battle with the Arameans of Ramoth Gilead. Here's the portion:

“Therefore hear the word of the Lord: I saw the Lord sitting on his throne with all the multitudes of heaven standing around him on his right and on his left. And the Lord said, ‘Who will entice Ahab into attacking Ramoth Gilead and going to his death there?’

“One suggested this, and another that. Finally, a spirit came forward, stood before the Lord and said, ‘I will entice him.’

“‘By what means?’ the Lord asked.

“‘I will go out and be a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all his prophets,’ he said.

“‘You will succeed in enticing him,’ said the Lord. ‘Go and do it.’

“So now the Lord has put a deceiving spirit in the mouths of all these prophets of yours. The Lord has decreed disaster for you.”



It appears that YHWH at least (among all the gods), is capable of lying.

Probably. There is no such being as "god"

God cannot create a stone so heavy even God cannot lift it.

So much for being all-powerful.

God cannot seem to use liquid eyeliner without getting it in his eye.

If he could, would he be omniflatulent?

God cannot clog his toilet so badly that even he cannot unclog it.

No matter how full of it he is.
