Re: What happens when an unstoppable force hits an immovable object?
Assuming this is possible. I will assume that the unstoppable force is composed of an amount of energy that will not be depleted through this interaction and that through some mechanism the immovable object is immune to external stimuli.

The two objects would collide with such incredible speed and strength, that the unstoppable force would expend a vast amount of energy, and both objects would temporarily be out of phase with one another allowing the unstoppable force to pass through the immovable object. Alternately, the immovable object could possibly deflect the unstoppable force, allowing it to continue on but in a different direction, if their properties allow it. Or, if the immovable object is capable of being destroyed, then it will be, again allowing the unstoppable force to pass "through" it. The collision may also be as such to allow one or both objects to transit into another "reality" of sorts, or to another physical location in the same reality, removing the immovable object from the unstoppable forces path and allowing it to continue on hence unhindered.

Re: What happens when an unstoppable force hits an immovable object?
The truth is though, so long as there is an immovable object, it's not possible to have an unstoppable force, and vica-versa. If there's a force which is unstoppable, then that means any object can be moved by it. If there's an object which is immovable, that means no force can move it. Unless any of the suggestions I provided above are true, or another one is which I hadn't thought of. Which, while I find them all possible, I also find each of them to be less likely than the above.

It's an immovable object meets an irresistible force. The answer is - neither exist ... can't happen.

Re: What happens when an unstoppable force hits an immovable object?
A good, similar question to ask is what happens when the irresistible force meets the immovable object? Technically, you could just say that the irresistible force would move to the object, due to its own irresistible attraction pulling the immovable object toward it, and seeing as the object isn't moving, the force would have to compensate for that - as its fundamental law demands its force be irresistible, requiring one way or another the attraction brings the two together.

But then, who's to say that the irresistible force isn't stationary and immovable itself, on account of it being directly between two immovable objects of equal properties and not suffering the effects of any other objects which would provide a momentum in a direction? That would seem to defy its fundamental law, creating a paradox which could only end in the revelation that the irresistible force isn't irresistible after all. Or can it be solved otherwise?

 Quoting: Concerned Reader 2457

An infinitely powerful being would have the capability of successfully undertaking any action. I suppose the question you have to ask yourself, is do you believe the entity you call "god" is infinitely powerful? Because, if so, considering you believe in a thing without proof (your god in the first-place), and as that is satisfying enough for you, your opinion regarding the matter is equally backed by fact (none), and thusly should be equally satisfying and true to you.

the immovable object wont move and the unstoppable force will slow down to zero in an infinite amount of time, so technically it will move slower and slower as time passes but never come to a complete standstill

hehehe ... I also like the question: Can God make a rock so big that He Himself can't lift it. The answer would have to be:
Yes He can, and no He can't; both at the same time or which ever you would like to see first. chuckle

 Quoting: hell yeah 370073

But if the force is traveling at any rate of speed, it will eventually meet the immovable object. Even had infinity not been an issue and the rate of speed suffice to keep the two from contacting before time, the universe, or whatever ended, they would never have made contact. And a thing can't slow for an infinite amount of time, there has to be a rate of deceleration. So, the question as to what happens when they meet isn't being answered.

Even if they never do meet, there would have to be a solution due to the fact that they seem to contradict one another.

Re: What happens when an unstoppable force hits an immovable object?
The whole question is based on a faulty definition of the objects involved (either something is unstoppable/immovable or it is not.

A better version would be what would happen if an object of infinite energy met an object of infinite mass, to which I suppose the answer would be that it would result in the release of the energy contained in both object.(Remembering that the object of infinite mass would also be generating infinite gravity thereby investing the object of infinite energy with greater acceleration as it approached).

It is manifestly apparent that people here do not even have a basic understanding of what force and matter are - and yet feel they are able to offer conclusive opinions on the subject, presumably because they are unaware that these terms have real and precise meanings.
