You misunderstand my point and the omnipotence paradox. The omnipotence paradox doesn't allow a being to break the rules of logic […]
No, I understand, but we're talking about an omnipotent supernatural being. I don’t think this supposed paradox discredits omnipotence. Plus the question is unfair from the start: “Can God create a stone so heavy that even he himself cannot lift it?”
If he can't create it, then he isn't all powerful. And if he can't lift it, then he isn't all powerful. The omnipotent being is damned if it does and damned if it doesn’t.
It simply states that omnipotence would require breaking the rules of logic and, since it can't be done, omnipotence is a logical paradox.
Why can’t God break the rules of logic? I see no reason why he wouldn’t be able to. Let’s say God can create a stone so heavy that he can’t lift it. *Boom* Created. There it is. Unliftable. So we just allowed for a logical impossibility. God’s solution to this problem would entail using his omnipotence to then lift the unliftable stone. *Boom* Lifted. Done. The solution is equally as impossible as the problem was. Zero contradictions.
TL;DR There can be no contradictions with omnipotence. If you’re creating a problem by using and allowing a logical impossibility (creating a stone too heavy to lift), then the solution must also allow for logical impossibilities (lifting impossibly heavy stones).EDIT:
Their brains are remarkably good at doublethink(ing?).
In psychology we call this Compartmentalization
