#10 – Paradox of the Stone

10 Most Controversial Paradoxes Ever!

via complain

Paradox of the Stone is a version of Omnipotence paradox:

"Could an omnipotent being create a stone so heavy that even he could not lift it?" If he could lift the rock, then it seems that the being would not have been omnipotent to begin with in that he would have been incapable of creating a heavy enough stone; if he could not lift the stone, then it seems that he would never have been omnipotent to begin with or would have ceased to be omnipotent upon his creation of the stone.

The answer could be stated as: 'omnipotence has nothing to do with the absence of weakness'.
