Thus, God is not bound by logic, nor is His omnipotence a contradiction.

Another thing about this, how does something be beyond logic in the first place? Logic is just the use of valid reasoning in intellectual activities. It is a means to investigating correct, reliable inference from fallacies.

This statement would seem to suggest no valid reasoning can be applied to God. Which in itself seems fallacious.

Isn't that using Mans definition of a God?

The human brain is often called the pinnacle of His creation. Perhaps He should've given us some form of telepathy so we could know exactly what someone was conceptualizing when they want to convey information. Instead, man's definitions are the best thing we've got.

Correct logic requires sufficient information to reason along. Perhaps God is indeed not beyond ANY logic, but beyond logic that we can apply using our finite perception to try and understand an infinite entity.

First off isn't this just moving the goal post? Anyway... We do have enough information to determine that omnipotence has a paradoxical nature.

To the original question of how much does Gods omnipotence break creationism, the answer is, simply, not at all.

Right now, your post looks like you blatantly ignored the whole discussion and just threw a dogma in here. To make it look better, the least I suggest you to do is to explain your answer; why do you think it doesn't? And better still would be to respond to some of the points that would speak against what you say.

Yeah, I agree. Bland statements like that don't help anything. Sorry
