Either god can create such a stone or he cant if he cant the argument goes then there is something that he cannot do namely create the stone and therefore he is not omnipotent if he can it continues then there is also something that he cannot do namely lift the stone and therefore he is not omnipotent either way then god is . The paradox of omnipotence can god create a rock so heavy that he cant lift it . If god is omnipotent surely he can lift any rock a rock which god cannot lift therefore cannot possibly exist its existence would contradict gods omnipotence because in this argument god is constrained by logic god cannot create something that cannot exist because a rock god cannot create cannot exist god cannot create one. Sometimes however its not a philosopher asking the question its just some smart aleck but the smart aleck also deserves an answer so you can simply say sure g d can create a rock so heavy that even he cannot lift it g d can do anything and he could even lift that rock that he cannot lift as well thatll send em flying
