Could we claim 'reality' is omnipotent? Just musing.

It's missing two components.

One, reality is not an intelligent agent.

Two, reality is bound by the physical laws of the universe.

The claims relating to god are he is an active, intelligent agent not bound by any physical law.

The rub is no one can seem to prove that supernatural activity occurs, whether it be ghosts, goblins, flying elephants, or gods.

Well, I'd say they have a misunderstanding of the meaning of 'God is omnipotent'.

I've generally referred to a possible creator as "Norm." He wears thick black rimmed glasses, a lab coat, and a pocket protector, and has zits. He lives in another universe and created ours as a science project.
