    Who thinks their god can make these things? (square triangles that is) Or isn't sure whether it can or it cannot?

    Maybe it's more of a philosophic issue as to wether or not the triangles want to become squares of thier own free will, or will god intervene supernaturally? 😀

    depends on how you define square triangles

    but if you are implying that god is omnipotent, then the answer is he is not. nobody is.

    he is really awesome though

    God will not force triangles against their will. 😵

    a "tree sides" with four sides?
    rili?


    one doesn't need to look much for proof of god not being omnipotent. this idea is not equivalent to "very powerful" but means "can do anything". but can any being do anything? can god create a rock that god cannot throw?

    Are you saying that in order for God to be omnipotent He should be able to create a rock to big for Him to move?

    That would be like saying that God is omnipotent because He can create an immovable object colliding with an irresistable forse.

    God is omnipotent, not stupid.

    Hmm...I've been spending a bit of time on the Christian forums (too much time!) and you'd be surprised with how many theists there think their god can do absolutely anything

    the answer to your question is, "you are stupid."

    by asking a question like this, you have obviously not thought about what God is.

    God is outside of logic. God created logic, it was a thought he made, (he who is outside of logic), and put us in it. By asking him to make something taht is inside of logic, that breaks logic while still sustaining logic, you receive the answer, "you are stupid."

    No he isn’t.

    If logic is a product of the mind of God (God’s logos?), then God is logical. Most theists who view God as omnipotent, for example, do not think that God’s power extends to, say, acting with evil intent (since they also say that God is by nature good).

    Agerg’s question essentially challenges those theists who use such attritubtes as omnipotence and omniscience as “escape hatches” for their own illogical views. (I am not saying that you are one of them.)

    Agerg is not stupid, and if there weren’t theists who post such views on here, he wouldn’t ask the question. Frankly, theists should welcome such questions. Any of us should, as part of the ongoing process of self-examination into our own thinking processes and the reasonableness of what we happen to believe.

    Everyone calling others 'stupid' are stupid themselves.
    (You too?)
    No, not me, stupid!
