“If God can create such a stone, then he is not all powerful, since he himself cannot lift it. On the other hand, if he cannot create a stone that cannot be lifted, then he is not all-powerful, since he cannot create the unliftable stone. Either way, God is not all powerful.”… The answer to the seeming paradox depends on your definition of omnipotence… When we define divine omnipotence correctly, as “the ability to make the possible actual” or “the ability to perform a logically possible task,” the paradox evaporates.

Ran across this today. This article has a good summary of all of the simplistic arguments against the existence of God. Enjoy!
