to your statement:

What did you see anyone lift or press? Those are tests of strength... supporting something does not equate to strength.

Now, as far as this feat goes, there IS a lot of uncertainty...we don't really know what exactly he's supporting, but it IS a strength feat, and likely a very good one. There also may be some metaphysical element, but I'd say its at least a solid planetary feat, potentially higher.

There is still weight acting on that beam, and we have 'engineering disasters' all the time in which a load bearing wall is insufficient to the task, and something collapses.
