    When someone asks you if God can make a rock so big he can't lift it, you ask them back, "would a deity, in order to be considered all powerful, have to be able to accomplish the illogical?" If they say no, that's the end of it. If they say yes, you say, "Then yes, God is able to make a rock so big, he can't lift it." Then when they say "Aha! Something God can't do!", you reply with, "But he can lift a rock too big for him to lift, since he is all powerful he can accomplish the illogical."
    Curiosity never hurt anyone. It was stupidity that killed the cat.

        Two words: Kobayashi Maru.

          God is not bound by His creation. Possibility is a creation of God.
