Omnipotence

Here's a thought…

The maximum amount of energy available to God is the combined energy content of everything which exists.

If God is all-powerful, then his maximum possible energy output must be greater than the combined energy content of everything which exists.

Therefore God is a perpetual motion machine.

Therefore God cannot exist.

Which is a bit of a bugger. As is the fact that the help forum's rules state that XP and Vista aren't supported; and they seem to apply that rule rather strictly. (I understand why the developers might not want to have to keep trying to find fixes for old systems, but personally, I don't see why a thread couldn't be kept open for ordinary XP and Vista users to share advice amongst themselves.
