Can god make a weight he himself cannot lift?
So, can God make a weight he can't lift. If he can than he cannot do something meaning he isn't omnipotent (able do anything). If he can't, then he can not do something again. What do you reckon? Sorry if you think it's a stupid question.

If God is omnipotent then could God make a rock so big that even he can't lift?
