What do you think of this? Logically possible?

@GregMG,
This thread has been done several times before, but to answer the question: no she cant. Although, it definately depends on how you define god. Or you can just flip logic the bird and say it is possible but good luck justifying it.

Sorry - I'm a new member.

It's just a riddle that boggles my mind whenever I think of it - because if God can't do so, then why call him/her God?

However if he can do so, what would become of this invincible entity? Either way God isn't omnipotent.

@GregMG,
The answer is yes and no. What we must consider about God is that god exists outside of the physical universe as the physical universe was designed and created by God. In this case, we cannot apply the same physical limitations to God that we apply to ourselves. So if we consider that time has no meaning to God and neither does physics as we know it, we have to consider that the answer is both yes and no with no variable factors as well as an unlimited number of variables. In this we must conclude that the answer is both yes and no and that we are unfortunately too limited by perception of physical reality to comprehend the full depth of this response.
