Arguing About Gods 2: Ontological Arguments


What a tough chapter on the ontological argument. I’ll leave it at Oppy’s basic reason for rejecting them in general.

Kindle Notes:

What seems right to me is this: that no ontological argument that has been thus far produced evades a three-pronged criticism: either it has plainly question-begging premises; or it is invalid; or it establishes the existence of something uncontroversial (that can reasonably be taken to have no religious significance, e.g., the physical universe).

Note: Oppy’s general dismissal of ontological arguments.
