Averroes Omnipotence Paradox -  "Can [an omnipotent being] create a stone so heavy that it cannot lift it?" This question generates a dilemma. The being can either create a stone which it cannot lift, or it cannot create a stone which it cannot lift. If the being can create a stone that it cannot lift, then it seems that it can cease to be omnipotent. If the being cannot create a stone which it cannot lift, then it seems it is already not omnipotent.

It breaks my heart knowing that I'm giving up on the hope I always had. But it tears me up, hoping for you to come rescue me.

When Homer is stoned and talks to Ned Flanders he cites his own example of the Omnipotence paradox: "Could Jesus microwave a burrito so hot that he himself could not eat it?"
