No. God is supposedly omnipotent

So if He can't create a being more powerful than Himself, then He can't be all-powerful. And if He can create a being more powerful than Himself, then He also can't be all-powerful.

The concept of an all-powerful deity is fundamentally paradoxical.

I know this isn't anything new and you've all probably heard the argument before, but I feel it's worth repeating.


Can humans create a computer than is more intelligent than we are? If so, can that computer create something more powerful than itself? Can that go on forever, or is there a limit to intelligence? If there is a limit, is the unimaginably powerful final computer at the end of the chain a God? If so, does that mean humans created a god?


Define intelligence. ;)

Pffft, Cities Skylines is the top city builder now so they'd likely be using that.


I never said it was a rich teenager who could afford the latest and fanciest games. This is Sim City 2000, you ought to see the lucky buggers living in the Cities Skylines universe. :x


We'd be so lucky. Based on the evidence it's clearly the 2013 version we're in.

Is negative intelligence possible?
