Could God make 1+1=3?

Or is the Divine bound by math?

    math is not logic, math is arbitrary rules, so yes
    just change the glyph for two to "3"

      You can just define 1 + 1 = 3 as one of your axioms and derive a whole theory around it. The question is Is it interesting enough for other people to care? A lot of math (if not all of it) is done like that. You can invent your own math and so long as it's consistent nobody will say shit to you.

      Then maybe I should ask is the Divine bound by logics.
      Can God make an object so heavy he himself cannot lift?

        ive never considered that a good puzzle, you're merely asking if god could suspend his omnipotence, which would likely be yes

    I think this is actually an excellent question not just a clever one (but you can get around it by changing the meaning of the symbols hurr durr)

      Does God have to follow the fundamental laws of the universe? If not why not?

        would depend if he is outside of it, or if it's a universe that "is" god imo, maybe easier to create a new universe entirely

        And if he does not, why does he still have to fight Satan, assuming God=good and Satan=baf?

        He is beyond creation itself.

        And if he does not, why does he still have to fight Satan, assuming God=good and Satan=baf?

        That would imply Satan is His equal, which isn't true. His angels deal with him.

    My preferred answer to the question is doctrine of logical omnipotence advocated by Lewis' and other scholars.
    >If you choose to say 'God can give a creature free will and at the same time withhold free will from it,' you have not succeeded in saying anything about God: meaningless combinations of words do not suddenly acquire meaning simply because we prefix to them the two other words 'God can.'... It is no more possible for God than for the weakest of his creatures to carry out both of two mutually exclusive alternatives; not because his power meets an obstacle, but because nonsense remains nonsense even when we talk it about God.
    >God can make 1+1=3
    The whole sentence is semantic nonsense (if we ascribe to math's axioms). It's so-to speak not a sentence. It cannot thus contradict 'God can do anything.' Another way to think of it is that '1+1=3' is not included in 'anything'.
    Here's a reputable source on it: https://vsbattles.fandom.com/wiki/Omnipotence#Thomas_Aquinas:_The_Scholastic_Current

    God made 1+1=2.
    We're bound by math.

      God presumably invented clocks as well. Thusly, 1 + 1 = 0 in the group of integers modulo 2.

        God is beyond time. Clocks are a man made invention to maintain a schedule.

    are you just now figuring out that math isn't nature? numbers are a construct of the mind. no where in nature will you see a number 1 or 2 or 3. sorry. numbers are an idea.

    1+1=3 is not +1-1+1=2

    ez 1+1 just simplifies to 11 in binary cause god can switch bases, 2 1s 11 is three

    Whole problem with this thread and all other answers is that you personified nature/universe and gave him humanlike qualities.

    Whole point of science and math is to describe nature, the innerworkings of the universe, or as you would say how God works.

    Also, God is an acronym for:

    G-enerator
    O-perator
    D-estructor

    All three processes are needed for life to take place.

    Nature / universe consists both of internal logic and material substance, or masculine and feminine principles.

    This analogy of nature being a single God or a pantheon of Gods was pretty useful back in the days, but today we have better understanding what is going on. It is no wonder that many ((scientists)) were spiritual or religious, across ages all of them were trying to describe nature, after all.
