I need a noun that means 'one who is omnipotent' that doesn't have any religious connections. (so not 'god')

Thanks

You can use omnipotent as a noun (don't believe me?). If you don't want it to mean God, I wouldn't capitalize it. If that doesn't sound right, you could say omnipotent being. I don't know of another word meaning omnipotent, sorry.

I found "cunctipotent", but it's an adjective. (just thought I'd post it as word of the day)

Cunctipotent
Cunc*tip"o*tent (k?nk-t?p"?-tent), a. [L. cunctipotens; cunctus all + potens powerful.] All-powerful; omnipotent. [R] God cunctipotent." Neale (Trans. Rhythm of St. Bernard).

Wow, that's one ugly word. Where does cuncti- come from? Is it Spanish? Oh, whoops, didn't see the little etymology entry there. Heh.
