That's not how it works you fucking idiot. If he makes lighter, it's no longer a rock that he cannot lift. That's the point. God fucking damn fuck this show. The stupid bitch also says that he can switch his omnipotence off and on. Why do you like this show?

This is how it works fedoras.

He creates the rock, then he lifts it anyway.
>>
>>120509897

She explains that an omnipotent god can create a rock that he cannot lift at one moment in time, but by becoming an existence that can lift the rock moments after, he then has the ability to lift the rock.

steps:
1. Create such rock
2. Cannot pick it up (solved case one)
3. God takes steroids
4. God becomes stronger
5. God lifts up rock (solved case two)

Cases
2. God can create a rock he cannot pick up
5. God can pick up any rock
>>
>>120511447
How can he create a rock he can't lift if he can lift the rock
>>
>>120511503
He lowers the universe, not lifting the rock, dumbass.
>>
>>120511499
That's a strawman. If he can at any point fail to lift the rock, he's not omnipotent.

Problem: Create a rock he cannot lift.
Your proposed solution: Become strong enough to lift the rock.

The issue with your solution is that he will still be unable to lift the wrong for a period of time. After that period of time has passed, the rock is no longer one that he cannot lift. This violates the cause.

Don't question religion.

>>
>>120511732
If he multiplies his own existence so that he may simultaneously lift and fail to lift the rock, then he still fails to be omnipotent because he cannot lift the rock. This also introduces another flaw, he can't chose whether or not he only wants to be able to lift or vice versa. That's something else he can't do.
>>
>>120511662
can't he just change the way omnipotency is perceived and just do it?
>>
>>120511662

I see your point, So your saying that omnipotence is when one can do anything at any given point in time.

Is that the strict definition. I gotta look that up.
Thanks for the info
>>
>>120511846
It's only your fault since you think that something in the past already happened, and he has to multiple himself for that. But instead he sees the time as a plane so he's one entity constantly, only you change, because you are an indecisive faggot, and he can lift and not lift something at the same time.
>>
>>120511893
Not exactly. If he has to alter his existence to be able to do something, it is no longer something that he cannot due. And this violates the cause. Remember, he has to create a rock that he cannot lift.

There is no need to introduce a rock to this arguments because simply, all we are asking is "if God can limit his own abilities".
>>
If you guys are getting frustrated just remember you are arguing a paradox. Omnipotence is having unlimited power. If you create a rock you cannot lift then you are saying you dont have unlimited power because you cannot lift the rock and therefore are not omnipotent. If you cannot create an unliftable rock then you are also saying you do not have unlimited power and are also not omnipotent. Simple paradox.

Akane in this scene is just dissecting the paradox trying to apply it to the real world. It's immediately assumed that Sybil or whatever the villains name is not omnipotent because of the former paradox so she then ponders how does one approach becoming omnipotent. The way sybil attempts to do it is by taking in brains from people it couldnt judge and using them to fill the gaps. The problem with this is that those brains were never actually judged so sybil cant say that it can judge all. The only way to approach omnipotence is to evolve to judge all.

Yes OP you are right in that if you make a rock lighter you still wont be omnipotent but its what you would do it you were to attempt to become as omnipotent as possible and thats the relevant information here.
>>
God isn't bound by human reasoning.

The omnipotence paradox isn't a real "paradox" because it subjugates God, who lies outside human comprehension, to the bounds set by human comprehension.

Essentially it is a linguistic problem, not one that deals with God's essential nature.

Atheists BTFO.
Fedoras BTFO.

There is an alternative answer, which I prefer.

If an omnipotent being exist, it means that there is nothing in the universe that can exist to defy the omnipotent being. Asking for a rock so heavy even an omnipotent being can't lift would be like asking for a triangle with four edges and four lines. It is a completely unnatural concept and cannot exist. Just because we can try to imagine in our heads its existence doesn't mean it could actually exist. It's not a limit of the omnipotent being's omnipotency, it's a limit of the universe.
>>
>>120512907

trusting ideologies such as Atheism, Christianity, or any other religion, can limit your world view.

Sometimes its good to just say "Maybe god exists, How the hell would I know?"

An omnipotent being should be able to control the universe.

If he existed, our satellites would've noticed a giant bearded guy floating in the skies already

>>
>>120512934
I see your point and its likely that there is a limit to anything, including the Universe. But the question that is being debated is not of the existence of a limitation but rather, the definition of omnipotence and if an omnipotent being can expand such limitations.

humans perceive things and accept their existence by using their senses, implying that there exists a being of something we can't perceive with our senses is too convenient
religion doesn't teach that god is a being but an idea, at least that's what I have gathered from people talking about religion, I personally don't believe in god but I can't deny its existence (if that makes any sense)

Because religion and reason are two different things.
Reason is about critical thinking, religion is about faith.
Trying to aplly critical thinking to religion and faith to Reason is both stupid and meaningless, you're putting fuel in an orange and wonder why it's not a cloud.

There's a difference between being an atheist and being an edgy militant internet New Atheist (aka a "fedora").

I'm sure most people on /a/ are atheists, just like most people on most boards, including the incredibly dumb ones like /v/ are also atheists. But just because they're atheists doesn't mean they have to be obnoxious circlejerkers who use every opportunity to shit on religion to feed their own ego and act like they're much more intellectual and intelligent than religious people.

I've been an atheist all my life, and I'm not an atheist because I'm rebelling against some authority, or because I read a holy book and found some of its lines or some policies of the religious organizations going against my personal morals, I'm an atheist because I lack belief in a higher power.

If you're an atheist for any other reason, you're not really an atheist. You're just another "convert" bandwagoner.

I'm personally glad the obnoxious era where everyone on the internet circlejerked about how much smarter we are than religious people is over, even if it does mean that every once in a blue moon a genuine religious fundamentalist loony will show up in an internet discussion and think everyone who's shitting on fedoras is a religious fundamentalist loony like themselves.

>>120513484
Many theists support their beliefs based on reason, anon, just like atheists. Of course religion does has much more faith involved, but saying that God does not exist it is also a matter of faith since you can't prove it.
