“Isn’t the Pope supposed to be God incarnate?”

No, the pope is supposed to be given divine inspiration directly from God. Therefore the opinion of the pope is supposed to be infallible.

Isn’t being infallible render one God or a god?

Um, actually not.

If you look at it as "God will strike a Pope dead before He allows him to officially promulgate error", you would be closer the mark.

In any case that only pertains to the teaching office of the Church. Popes can be--and have been--wrong in their personal opinions.

False.

1) Papal infallibility is about a negative protection of the Holy Spirit. It is not in any way a “divine inspiration directly from God.”

2) No opinion of the pope can be infallible - that’s why it’s called an opinion.
