Kurt Godel’s Ontological Proof For The Existence Of God

 

Did you know that Kurt Gödel provided a formal logical proof for the existence of God?

Yes, he did.

It can be found here.

“Gödel’s ontological proof is a formal argument for God’s existence by the mathematician Kurt Gödel. It is in a line of development that goes back to Anselm of Canterbury. St. Anselm’s ontological argument, in its most succinct form, is as follows: “God, by definition, is that for which no greater can be conceived. God exists in the understanding. If God exists in the understanding, we could imagine Him to be greater by existing in reality. Therefore, God must exist.” A more elaborate version was given by Gottfried Leibniz; this is the version that Gödel studied and attempted to clarify with his ontological argument.”

HTH.

Thank you.

THE GIANT LEGO TRAIN INTELLIGENT DESIGN

 

THIS IS YET ANOTHER HUGE LEGO TRAIN DESIGN.

IT IS INTELLIGENT DESIGN.

IT IS EXPRESSED VIA AN INTELLIGENTLY DESIGNED CREATURE, MY SON.

AS SUCH, IT IS OBVIOUS THAT MY SON HAS AS HIS DESIGNER THE GREATEST DESIGNER OF ALL– GOD.

AS POINTED OUT BY MANY, SUCH AS PETER KREEFT– IF YOUR BRAIN WAS NOT INTELLIGENTLY DESIGNED, THEN WHY WOULD YOU TRUST IT? YOU WOULD NOT, IN THE SAME WAY YOU WOULD NOT TRUST AN AIRPLANE’S NAVIGATION COMPUTER SYSTEM IF IT WERE “DESIGNED” BY A PROGRAMMING METHOD THAT INVOLVED LEAVING A KEYBOARD OUT IN A HAILSTORM AND USING THE RANDOM KEY STROKES AS THE PROGRAM TO RUN THE PLANE’S NAVIGATION SYSTEM. NO, IF YOU ARE RIDING IN A PLANE, YOU WILL DEMAND, EXPECT, AND PRESUPPOSE AN INTELLIGENT DESIGN. HOW MUCH MORE SO WHEN WE LOOK AT THE GRANDEUR OF CREATION, GOD’S PLAN.

THE RELATIVIST IS FUNNY. HE SAYS EVERYTHING IS RELATIVE. HOWEVER, WHEN HE NEEDS TO DRIVE FROM BOSTON TO NEW YORK AND HE ASKS DIRECTIONS OF HIS GPS MACHINE, HE DOES NOT EXPECT HIS GPS TO GIVE HIM A RANDOM SET OF WORDS THAT POINT HIM RANDOMLY ACROSS THE GLOBE, KNOWING THAT (GIVEN THAT EVERYTHING IS RELATIVE) HIS CHANCES OF ARRIVING AT HIS DESTINATION ARE AS GOOD AS LOOKING AT AN “ABSOLUTE POINT OF REFERENCE”, NAMELY A MAP.

SURE, ONE FEELS CLEVER WHEN ONE SAYS “A TRILLION MONKEYS GIVEN A TRILLION YEARS COULD WRITE HAMLET”, OR SOME OTHER SIMILAR CLAIM. HOWEVER, IT IS VERY FUNNY THAT WHEN ONE PICKS UP A COPY OF HAMLET ONE NEVER SEEMS TO WONDER “WAS THIS WRITTEN BY A MILLION MONKEYS OR WAS IT WRITTEN BY A HUMAN”. FUNNY HOW THAT IS.
