Are YOU saying something with unlimited powers doesn't exist? When and IF something is discover that has unlimited powers, then at that time it will suddenly exist?
It's alway gratifying to have Theists confim their God to be NOT omnipotent, as other Theist will swear that their God IS omnipotent, how do you intellectually challenged children settle this dispute? I know you do it with your fists.
Let me get this straight.

You allow the possibility there is "something" of unlimited powers, or omnipotent.

But you disallow the possibility there is a god of unlimited powers, or even of limited powers.

Bwahahahahahahahahahahahah..., berp,...ahahahahahahah....

Which one do you want to discuss?
So having unlimited power and being all powerful are somehow different? Explain. Is this gong to be you deflecting the conversation to word meanings rather than the subject?

Buck,
With you vast experiences you should dedicate your life to helping young people make the right choices and stay clear of trouble.
I know you think Iím joking but Iím very serious. You know Mike Barber the former Houston Pro Football player. He has carved out a wonderful ministry helping the incarcerated find God.
You can be a valuable resource if you would give your life to the Lord. He has a work for you.
God Bless you BuckÖ..
That is a truly generous sentiment, Eagle.

You put me to shame.

If Jesus is a god or a king, somebody sure forgot to tell HIM.
He told the handful of fisherman and dirt farmers who followed him that they could do greater things than he could.
Guess the king is the last to know.
Jesus told them greater, as in larger in number.

And we, all 2.2 billion of us, have done just that.

Your "logic" assumes the universe poofed out of nothingness all on it's own.

Without evidence.

Imagine that.

When I worked for law enforcement I would occasionally get a phone call from someone asking if they had a warrant outstanding on themselves.
By law I couldnít answer that question over the phone. I would encourage them to come down and show me ID. Of course they had to walk through a electronic controlled door. Once inside the box and if they had a warrant they were trapped,[laughing].
They had a warrant for me in Georgia for parole violation, and I got stopped in KY for a burned out tail light.

That tail light bulb cost me 2 years behind bars.

hmmm....

Upon further review of the word, "omnipotent", it appears that God is in fact omnipotent after all.

But even omnipotence doesn't give God the ability to do the logically impossible.

Here, some good info on the matter:

en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Omnipotence

A deity is able to do anything that it chooses to do.

A deity is able to do anything that is in accord with its own nature (thus, for instance, if it is a logical consequence of a deity's nature that what it speaks is truth, then it is not able to lie).

Speaking of OCD, RR- that is what YOU suffer from.

You are OBSESSED with Topix.

You have a COMPULSION to post on Topix on average of about 80 posts per day.

Therefore, being obsessive and compulsive is a disorder which YOU suffer from.

Yet another "bad habit" of yours.
