Good point.
A correction/update is due:

That is as meaningless as saying:
Cubic-Object-A has a volume that spans from -∞ to ∞ along axes x, y, and z.
Object-B has a volume greater than Object-A

Don't need to go so far like creating huge stones, just take the bible and read it, to find out that god not only is not almighty, but it seems totally stupid, and most of the time full of envy, pride, ill intended, every second page. First example of the god being not-almighty is when he went into the garden of Eden and didn't have any freaking idea where Adam was, he had to look for him, and at the end ask where he was, after he couldn't find him (Adam was hidden because after eating the apple he became self-aware and he found out he was naked, therefore he was ashamed). And by the way, what the hack was god doing when Adam and Eve were eating the apple? Can't he see anything?

Indeed. His omniscience suggests that it is necessary to substantially limit both omnipotence and omniscience. and then holy Bible marasmus and mersenneforum are not far away

I asked my neighbor
-What is the likelihood of meeting a Dinosaur (T-Rex) on the street?
- =50%
-How the hell is that possible?
-Well, either you will meet, or you will NOT meet

(and yes, that's the correct answer)
(edit: for clarity, she was asked that in a radio show many years ago, when she was talking about the fact that probabilities don't have memory, and that we are tempted to bring our experience into judging things which are pure math, where our past experience has no place - I think it was about Monty Hall problem, "how about if the host tries to cheat me")

Preferably, stop texting with the neighbours and take your chances on the street.
If there is a T-Rex, please snap a photo and share it with us.
