    Even an omnipotent being can't do something that's intrinsically impossible, and it's intrinsically impossible for a stone to be too heavy for an omnipotent being to carry.

        He's right, what you're asking is meaningless because it involves necessary contradiction.
        >God by nature can do anything
        >There exists therefore a thing that God can't do given His nature, in this case, lift a rock.
        It's absurd. The question is as meaningful as asking can there be colorless colors? or non-existent actualized beings? The question is meaningless.

          From the other thread you were btfo'd in
          >This is a stupid argument and doesn't make sense. "no because it's a contradiction"
          God not only creates all things but is prior to all things and their internal logic (a first cause) as such he can do things that contradict themselves because he also creates their internal logic of contradiction and could have made them not contradict otherwise. It is inconceivable in reality as it exists but reality as it exists is not prior to god. This should be really easy for christians to understand because god's very nature is indeed a contradiction or physical impossibility given the trinity, he is three things in one neither divided, modal, partial, or intentional. This is a physical contradiction but god is prior to contradiction and as such this is possible.

          no such thing as omnipotence, midwit

          So god's not real, got it

            God creates things and gives them *natures* and what follows from these natures determines the logic of their existence. It is outside the possibility of anything given *the nature of being itself* to be and also not be in the same manner in every respect. That is just a nonsensical assertion. Omnipotence refers to acts consistent with God's nature and character, not to any act at all. Since God necessarily exists, actualized nonbeing is impossible. The two can never meet.

            We don't say that it is impossible. We actually don't know, hence why it is a mystery.

      According to the Bhagavad Gita, reality is contingent on God, not the other way around. So God would create a stone that was so heavy he couldn't lift it, and you would go insane watching (if he didn't give you some way to comprehend it first, I guess).

      I know OP asked about the Abrahamic God, and I think some of them developed a concept like this much, much later. Probably Christians lifting from Platonism again.

        That's how it works in abrahamism as well. If you think there is anything god cannot do your conception of god is not omnipotent by definition.

    There is no stone He could not carry. The stone is Him, all things are Him

    He’d go into the console, change his strength stat, and couldn’t carry it. At any point he could just go back into the console though.

    No one else has access to the console.
    It’s like asking
    >could the admin turn on survival mode for himself?
    Yeah. But it’s impossible to eliminate the Admin’s admin privileges.
    If he dies in survival he can just go “psyche” and res himself with the console

      Could he lock himself out of admin privileges?

        in theory, sure.
        but considering he's an omniscient admin, he's not subject to mistakes which human admins make.

        So, it couldnt happen because it never will* happen forever.

            there'd be no other reason for an admin to lock himself out of admin privileges.

        >He continues to have all of His attributes and names, which must be believed that God Almighty has the most beautiful names and highest attributes, and that He Almighty called Himself by His most beautiful names and described Himself by His highest attributes in eternity, so He remains called by His names and characterized by His attributes. This is the doctrine of the Sunnis, including the Ash’aris, may God have mercy on them. the necessity of establishing the eternity of His names and attributes, just as God Almighty made eternity necessary for Himself, which necessitates the necessity of permanence. The attribute of eternality means that He is the eternal in Himself, His names, and His attributes, whose existence has no beginning. The attribute of permanence means that He is the eternal in Himself, His names, and His attributes, whose existence and permanence there is no end. They are among the attributes of obstinacy that deny and take away from God something that does not befit Him.
        Ibn Abi Zayd al-Qayrawani
