Explain it to me, and I'd give up atheism.

Actually, don't please.

... omnipotence this, omnipotence that...

Would anyone mind enlightening me as to why this question arises at all? Why would anyone bother considering God Omnipotent instead of "just" Really Fucking Powerful? All it seems to do is mire everyone down in semantics.

Just read the Garden of Eden story and you find that God (multiple aparently) was afraid of something.

He kicked them out of Eden after they got knowledge to prevent them from getting eternal life, which would make man like gods.

So god=man+knowledge+eternal life

Wacky powers aren't really needed I guess.

what a boring excuse!
of course he can he's omnipotent. which means you answer any question of "can he do" with yes. Can an omnipotent being defy logic? yes, otherwise he wouldn't be omnipotent now would he Rolling Eyes

theology is so much more fun that logic

It's not an excuse. Lewis is not saying God is not omnipotent - he's saying that any question involving the doing of something logically impossible is insensible, and the answer cannot make sense either way, because the question is broken.

This is exactly the response I was looking for.

I know I know, and it's a good answer because it defuses the whole thing, but is it fun?

And then again,
if you're going to be omnipotent you have to be more powerful than everything else so an omnipotent being can't be bound by logic, reasoning or common sense. That'd A. imply the existence of something more powerful than our all-powerful being. and B. introduce a new class of thing (illogical things) that can't be accomplished by an omnipotent being

Doing stuff that doesn't make sense is what being a god is all about. What kind of god would you be if you could only do stuff that could reasonably be accomplished? Just a man with eternal life. Booo-ring
