I have a question for all of you.
If god is allmighty, can he create a rock so big, that he cannot lift by himself?

Hi Meisa, and welcome to DS.

I think you may find the answer to your own question in your choice of fav books...Awakening, and if not then definetly in your movie choice....Pulp Fiction!

And....i think i dodged that question rather nicely!

Regards
Dermot.

Hi Meisa,
Welcome to DS.
I do not know for God, but it would be nice if you could explain your urge to ask such a question as your introduction post.

I don't think it was "an urge" or anything so severe. My guess would rather be that it was meant as a playful question, and therefore a playful opening post.
Since it was posted in "Imagination Exercises" forum, it fits in that regard as well.
Maybe...?

Dermot,
Nicely dodged. That was a full success.

Meisa,
If God is not almighty, but merely wise, would she decide to create such a rock?

Yes, it was meant to be a playful question, don't take it too seriously. Nice dodging btw, nobody answered my question. =0)

My answer would be yes... It is not necessary that the rock would have to be "so big" but also more that God could theoretically take any form and through doing so subject his or herself to the limitations of that form... and therefore not be able to lift a rock of a certain dimension/weight.

(all taken in the consideration that "God" is a separate being from anything and everything else)
