The Limitations of Omnipotence

There are things I can do that God can't. One example is that I can enjoy a movie with a surprise ending. God can do that because God can see the future and he already knows the end to all the movies that will ever be written. In fact God knows everything God is ever going to do. Kind of limiting to have no free will.

I'd say that you're in good company with your musings, Marc. After all, Einstein always stated that what really interested him was whether God really had any choice in the design of the universe. (It was in regard to the question of whether the demand for logical simplicity leaves any freedom at all.)

Of course, anyone who regards his or her own subjective perception to be infallible is just being arrogant.
