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 we suspend disbelief and accept the existence of God, He would no longer be omnipotent if he could. By not being able to create that weight, also is a proof of limitation.
Omnipotent doesn't mean that God can do anything. It means that he can do anything that is logically possible. God can't lie, sin or make a square circle. This question distorts the definition of omnipotence and is therefore guilty of the straw man fallacy.
