The Devil's Dictionary: Incompossible (adj.)

Unable to exist if something else exists. Two things are incompossible when the world of being has scope enough for one of them, but not enough for both -- as Walt Whitman's poetry and God's mercy to man.

[This is, I consider, by far the best and most amusing of the attempts to prove atheism by appeal to the problem of theodicy. -- Peril]
