The Plurality of Possible Omnipotent Beings

The most common strategy of those atheologically disposed toward the doctrine of divine omnipotence is to cite an act that God cannot perform and to conclude from this that God is not omnipotent. Theists always counter the arguments employing this strategy by attempting to find some fallacy in the atheologian's argument. P.I. to examine the basic assumption of this general strategy, namely, that identifying an act that God cannot perform is sufficient to falsify the claim that God is omnipotent. This is the fourth paper in a series devoted to an analysis of the attributes of God and foundation for further work. The application of contemporary knowledge and methodology in this area remains and important and stimulating work for both philosophers students, as it lies at the heart of teh conflict between knowledge and belief in the modern world.
