Re: The Ontological God is the Ultimate God.

Ok, so clearly, you have an opposition between what is "real" and and what is "merely thought". This is a very common misunderstanding. Let me try to resolve it by showing you why you have it. Let me direct your attention first to nature. By nature I mean what is. Consider the fact that it admits, ...

Re: The Ontological God is the Ultimate God.

I don't see how your 'greater to not exist' is applicable to St. Anselm's argument. Because if it is greater not to exist then his proof functions as a proof that god does not exist because else, were he (god) to exist, he would not be as great as a the same god not existing, and since god is that ...

Re: God is an Impossibility

Here is an argument, Why God is an Impossibility to be real. There are two types of perfection for philosophical consideration, i.e. 1. Relative perfection 2. Absolute perfection 1. Relative perfection If one's answers in an objective tests are ALL correct that is a 100% perfect score. Perfect scor...

Re: The Ontological God is the Ultimate God.

... If you argue God is a being itself or being-in-itself, God-in-itself, this is yet another form of the ontological God. In this case, Kant had demonstrated the 'thing-in-itself' is an illusion. BTW I do not argue that God is a "being itself or being-in-itself" nor do I subscribe to the meaning o...

Re: The Ontological God is the Ultimate God.

Your point is off the OP's in relation to the definition of the ontological God, i.e. as in stated in the OP; St. Anselm; The ontological God is a, "being than which no greater can be conceived ". -wiki Descartes; He suggested that the concept of God is that of a supremely perfect being, holding al...

Re: The Ontological God is the Ultimate God.

Generally ontology is the study of 'being'. In the OP I have defined the specific ontological being, i.e. the ontological God. Your post seem to have veered off point to ontology in general. As it turns out it is not off point as for example the syntax "greatest being" in the OP admits the possibil...

Re: The Ontological God is the Ultimate God.

There is first a fundamental distinction between natural experiencing (what is) and ontological experiencing (that it is). One must make that distinction in one’s own experiencing. ....

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

Hmm...let me think. We seem to have stated our cases, and now be working over some of the same ground again. Ok, so I can summarize then: The main question is whether experiencing can be predicated onto a physical entity making the concept of the entity not just what is currently defined in science...

Re: "Free will was given to man by god."

Brains are mass-having lumps of tissue that can be experiencing. I'm sorry, but that's just a question-begging claim. We have not shown that, nor have we the means even to indicate it's likely to be true. In fact, the evidence that the meat is nothing by itself is far more compelling. Look more car...

.... We do not know whether ....... b) the brain causes the mind to exist.... All we can safely say is that both exist. This is false.
