Pals with the Big G- The Omnipotence Paradox

Today whilst in the midst of some meditation, I came across something called "The Omnipotence Pardox" which asks the question (to summarize the concept of the paradox)-"If God is omnipotent can he create a stone that he cannot lift?"

I thought this was interesting question and after some thought I came to this conclusion...

Solution to the “Omnipotence Paradox”- Because God is Omnipotent, He is both Omnipresent and Omniscient; because he is Omnipresent, He is both the lifter and the stone; the stone cannot lift itself, but the lifter can; finally, because he is Omniscient he can observe both the ability and inability to lift the stone. Because of His perfection, God is both the cause and solution to the paradox.
