The atheist likes the question like rye like onions.  Jared Wilson has come up with an answer that points to the empty tomb and does not escape the nature of the question.  His response is:

The truth is that God did make a weight so heavy he couldn’t lift it. He did so not by building an immovable force — we did that with our sin — but by incarnating the frailty of humanity and willingly subjecting himself to the force. As one of us, yet still himself, he created the conundrum of the incarnate God, bearing a cross he both ordained yet could not carry by himself, becoming condemned in death and also victorious. And God was crushed according to the plan he himself projected from the foundation of the world.
