This is a page for paradoxes about deity. What's important are the assumptions we make about any deity. For example, if "God" is both all-powerful and capable of creating anything, then

"Can God make a rock so heavy that he can't lift it?"

More importantly are the assumptions we make about us. Do we have free will? If so, then doesn't that contradict the fact that God is the cause of everything? If so, then we're all just automatons, doing God's will. If not, then there appears to be events beyond the control of God.

Another paradox might be what happens whenever we (appropriately) throw out the Law of the Excluded Middle. There is a different God for every person or thing, and they are all the same God - even the no-God that atheists believe in and the maybe-God that agnostics question. If this is approached experientially, then there is no contradiction. Oddly, there would seem to be only a resolution in a case-by-case basis. Each person would have to settle this one for themselves. The question is, if we're all human and we all believe in something, it can never be proven that what you believe is different from or identical to what I believe, since we cannot share experience perfectly. Note: This has nothing to do with logic, only the mathematical truth that it is very difficult to prove something in the negative.
