Omnipotence

HideShow resource information

Descartes- God can do the logically impossble. e.g. make it rain and not rain at the same time.

Aquinas- God can do anything possible. e.g. part the red sea, he cannot violate the laws of logic or mathematics.

 -a "square circle" is simply meaningless. As it's a contradiction.

 -something logically impossible is nothing, so there is nothing to achieve.
