    Re: Omnipotent God?

    Well there are some assumptions which make your questions valid:

    - that man is the only entity God has created in which case the eden part of genesis is all about man (no whispering devil) and hence the "rules" are absurd indeed.
    - that man only has one chance at life and then vanishes in which case infantile death is cruel on infants (no karma, no reincarnation, no eternal soul)
    - that the damnation of man (getting to hell) is the sole discretion of God, no judgement, no accountability etc.

    Are you willing to make those assumptions? Because if you are how close are you to the atheist - rationalist - darwinist strategy?

    The idea that you could have faith in God but drop the "all" part from his description is reuining faith altogether. What is God then, a bigger brother?

    This logical trick has often been used to rule out omnipotency. But also we do use a tiny part of our braing by all current neurological evidence, so maybe what may seem now a paradox on a higher level of conscience could be a solvable issue: what if yes God can eliminate His existence but in fact non existence exists just as well as existence so because he can non exist he can then exist back.

    In an universe where we've seen antimatter and measured quantum fluctuations you can safely think that "emptiness", "nothingness" dont really exist which makes omnipotence possible :) Couldn't it?
