Arguing for Atheism 2: Is God Necessary?

07/22/2011

Great treatment of the ontological argument. I’ve never seen a treatment like this, and a lot of it is over my head, but I find the analysis of what “greater” means to be useful, and a reread may be warranted. The discussion of contingency vs. necessity is worthwhile too. What does it mean for something to be necessary? What is a possible world? Although people rarely use the ontological argument, it is useful to have something to refer to, just in case it comes up.
