It might be time to take cover. Things could get toasty around here…. and fast!
Yesterday’s strip raised an interesting question. Which would be more appropriate, Omnipotent or Omniscient.
Now, the opinion of some of our learned readers suggested that the word Mr. G. SHOULD have used was Omniscient, meaning: All knowing. Obviously, I don’t want to get between them and the one guy who is pretty good with words… often only needing one word… THE word… to kick-start a whole planet… so I’ll let that slide.
But the word spoken by Mr. G. wasn’t Omniscient, it was Omnipotent, meaning: All powerful.
Clearly if you have ALL the powers, one of said powers, it would seem obvious to state, would be Omniscience, no?
And if you STILL disagree, one would have to ask, could Mr. G. create a Mr. G. who is Omnipotent yet not also Omniscient?
