    omnipotence is all-powerful. omniscience is all-knowing.

    From Aghori's blog:

    A point in Omnipotence vs Omniscience

    In Dawkins' The God Delusion there is an argument showing why omniscience and omnipotence are mutually incompatible. Roughly it goes like this :

    If God is omniscient he must be knowing what he is going to do at some point of time (say one year later) in the future. Then he is powerless against changing it. Hence He cannot be omnipotent

    As we understand, defining omnipotence and omniscience is a troublesome task at best. And to give it a concrete unambiguous meaning seems impossible. We have tried various tacks of trying to define both the things, none of which works. Ultimately these concepts are ill defined and logically contradictory. Hence they cannot be used to form unambiguously meaningful sentences. So the above proof stands invalid. We are not saying that omnipotence and omniscience are mutually compatible. Just that it doesn't make sense to ask this question. In this respect it is like many English questions which are grammatically correct but meaningless to answer. like - what is the shape of red?

    You and Jim split up for good: does izzy go between the two of you equally, do you fight for her and you get sole custody, or do you say to yourself “I am free, just take her” Ok so this is a serious question again but alas it might give us a bit more insight of you then what is your favorite breakfast cereal ….

    I know exactly where I'd go, but I'm not quite sure on what year. I'd go to New York and I'd either adventure around the Village during the Beat generation or a few years later and explore the Factory. Both artistic worlds have always fascinated me.

    I think she'd go between us equally. Although I hate the prospect of her having to bounce back and forth between mom and dad's house, I'd never deny her time with her father no matter what might have happened between us.

    False. In current APA italicizing is preferred over underlining. In MLA it is more open, but from my personal experience my professors prefer italics.

    I don't really understand how one could be lazy when they are synonymous and both require the click of one button.

    Questions:
    1. What do you teach? I've always been curious...
    2. How did you and your husband meet?
    3. Do you think you will always teach, or is there something else you would like to pursue?

    i think for people who used to write papers and do homework on notebook paper, we couldnt italicize because we were handwriting our stuff. so in our brains, naturally, correct grammar is to underline book titles. but its 2009, and i believe italicising will be the common method in years to come........ah life before computers, i miss it.

    if kids don't learn that underlining is how you signal to the reader that you are refferring to a title of a book, and they have to handwrite the sentence, they might be confused.

    imagine handwriting the sentence, The Book is good.

    I just thought of this question in the shower.

    What would you order for your last meal on your way to execution? Please keep in mind it will be cooked by the head chef of the prison, so picking things they probably haven't cooked before like fois gras might not turn out great. Also keep in mind that you decide the whole menu, including drinks, apps and desserts. Finally, remember that you will be dying soon after finishing the meal, so don't worry about choosing foods that might make you sick later. Peanut butter scrambled eggs? Why not!

    I will get back to you on all of these questions, but for now I'm on my way to Camarillo for a housewarming party. Should be nice and cool up there.

    Did you have celebrity crushes as a girl? If so, who were you celebrity crushes in high school?

    Do you see yourself teaching 5 or 10 years from now?

    They are synonyms in that they are close enough in meaning. They mean the same or almost the same.

    If the distinction that apparently you all seem to be establishing is all-knowing versus all-powerful then I'd say that one can be omnipotent without being omniscient, yet the reverse may not necessarily be true. In most contexts the terms are interchangeable, but maybe not when you are talking about an evil dictator vs a God or a puppet master vs a third person narrator. Going back to the original question I would choose omniscient, but I would still consider the terms to be synonymous.

    I posted Aghori's opinion because I found it interesting and I like to share.

    Can I choose the butterfly? That would easily be my favorite creature.

    Animal = sloth, I have always appreciated their slow and deliberate approach to life.

    dinosaur = I'm not sure it would fall appropriately in the dinosaur category, but it's extinct so screw it. I love the Mammoth. It's beautiful, odd, and reminds me of one of my most favorite places on earth to visit.

    1. 7th grade Language Arts (that's what they are calling English class these days)
    2. I met my husband at a local dive bar called the Tustin Inn. One of those places that you drive by as a kid and wonder what kind of people hang out there and then years later you are a regular. He and his friend were using one of the pool tables and I asked if we could play doubles. I called him an asshole after he kicked our butts and of course we started talking.
    3. To some degree, I will always be a teacher. Whether I stay in junior high or in English remains to be seen. The prospect of teaching for the next 30 years is daunting. Not because of the job, but the idea of doing anything for 40 years is kind of crazy.

    The possibilities are mindless.

    My first celebrity crushes were Michael J. Fox and Billy Idol. (I know . . . I've always been a bit schizo.)

    5 or 10 years from now? Most likely, unless something extraordinary happens.

    Since your choice of filet mignon suggests that your execution is a special affair, what will you wear to your grand finale? Something really comfy and non-restricting, like sweats and a t-shirt? Or, maybe go all out and sport a ballgown and tiara? Maybe your favorite Jane's Addiction t-shirt and beat up jeans? Birthday suit and bib? How about rubber boots and raincoat, with hopes of fucking the electrical current up and having a second helping?

    Ah, so you're changing your plea to guilty? If that's the case, you'll probably be SOL on the filet dinner and choice of fashion. They'll hand you a retarded looking jumpsuit, send you to your room, and feed you shit on a shingle for the next 20 years.
    Since we're on the subject...
    Have you ever been arrested or come close to being arrested? For what, if that's any of our business? How about handcuffs and restaints? Yes, or no?
