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 (http://www.m-w.com/cgi-bin/dictionary?va=omnipotent&book=Dictionary [Broken]). 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.

no one:s gonna say it is incorrect, just *we don:t understand*, but you still understand.

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

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? :confused: Oh, whoops, didn't see the little etymology entry there. Heh.
