Catch Him if you can!

Apropos of my earlier post 'Thank God,I am an atheist', a friend of mine posed this question to me.'Can your God make so heavy a ball that no one can lift it?.There was a bit of taunt and also a lot of curiosity in his voice. He perhaps thought that if the ball made conforms correctly to his specification,then even God should not be able to lift it and in such a case, God can no more be called omnipotent.But if God is able to lift it, then it means that God could not just make a ball conforming to a given specification.Thus God fails to be omnipotent either way!
My reply to his question was that God can do it.
He being the creator of the universe and all the life therein, it's sustainer and also the one who can withdraw it, is called God by all, a term that makes him omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient.
I further told my friend(for the sake of technical substantiation)that a 'heavy' ball need not be made to prove the point. If the force of attraction of earth's gravity is increased for a while, then one will not be able to lift even his empty hand not to talk of lifting a ball! During the time that the gravitational force of earth is kept increased, the pulls on the other planets will of course have to be kept suitably altered to prevent interplanetary collisions. Can the God or the Shakti(force) that created and is sustaining the universe not do it?
By simple inference, the answer is 'He can'.
However, I advised him on the best course of action to clear his doubt; ie. to approach this Shakti whom we all refer to as God and take a test of it's omnipotence himself!
I sincerely wish him success in his search for God!

  13. Much can be said on either side of the issue: believers and non-believers.

    For people who believe in God, no proof is necessary, and for people who do not believe in God no proof is possible! There ends the conclusion.

    The discussion, however, can be prolonged to any length of time!
