can God in her omniscient, omnipotent wisdom create a rock that is so heavy even God herself cannot lift it? ;-)

Along these lines I found a way to resolve the theist and the atheist viewpoints: It is simply to assert that god is so big and powerful (omniscient and omnipotent) that he is the creator of a world capable of creating itself. Hence his role in creation is nil even though he is the creator. This approach allows the scientific process to continue as if there were no god. Evolution is OK. The big bang is OK. It also satisfies the theists because it raises god to such unimaginable level of power that he is able create this way: by doing nothing. This god is surely bigger than any "hands-on-creation" god that classical religions have come up with. ;-)
