    Can God create a wrestler so good that God himself can’t outwrestle him?

    For a 12 level logic wielder, that was a pretty unwieldy question.

    For what it's worth, no. If 'God' consititues and comprises 'all', then by definition, the wrestler that god made must be equal to or below God's own ability.

    He is NOT a Carlson Gracie black belt:

    Also, I wish I could say that I photoshopped the following image, but I can't. His 2nd "dan" BJJ cert:

    The instructor who "granted" him the 2nd "dan" in BJJ is here:

    His "instructor"s credentials, from the website:
    Shihan Farouk has trained in the martial arts for over 30 years. He has studied various arts such as Karate -do , Judo, Aikido and Silat. Shihan Dr. Kirk "Farouk" Gibbs currently holds the title of Judan (10. Degree) in YudanSila Bela Diri, Roku Dan ( 6th Degree), San Dan (3rd Degree), in Okinawa Karate Do, and Guru in Pencak Silat with various combat & tactical defense certifications.
    I'll wager my 458 varrots that his guy doesn't have verifiable lineage to back up any of these claims either. Thanks for the lulz.

    So, finally, at least SOME BJJ fags have aknowledged the inherent superiority of JTMA and switched back to the dan system.

    A "yes" or "no" seems a very aristotelean answer suggestive of western schooling.

    I'd suggest a less boolean answer is possible in that if God is truly omnipotent, he could build a wrestler he couldn't outwrestle, and outwrestle him.

    God would not need to wrestle him because of his power to smite.

    Yes. God loves the ground and pound method. Those who do not obey feel his almighty take down and fists.

    God also trains alive:


    1 Corinthians 9:25-27" Everyone who competes in the games goes into strict training. They do it to get a crown that will not last; but we do it to get a crown that will last forever.Therefore I do not run like a man running aimlessly; I do not fight like a man beating the air.No, I beat my body and make it my slave so that after I have preached to others, I myself will not be disqualified for the prize"
