What is the omnipotence paradox?

The omnipotence paradox is a philosophical paradox which arises when attempting to apply logic to the notion of an omnipotent being.

Since the Middle Ages, philosophers have phrased the paradox in many ways, of which the classic example is, "Could an omnipotent being create a rock so heavy that even that being could not lift it?"
