Starting at the 6'40" mark where the ontological argument is listed in six steps...

 

The Christian says, "Steps two through six are straightforward and largely uncontroversial."

 

And the CosmicSkeptic says, "Which is exactly why I'm going to try and rebut them."

 

I love that kinda talk :)

“Maximally great” and the other arguments here are mind games.
If mind games take you to conclusion(s) you find emotionally and/or intellectually satisfying, then ok.

Mind games, aka thought experiments, are not evidence.

That is true.  Mind games -- and arguments about God -- are not evidence.  

 

We have no objective, verifiable evidence -- or facts -- about God.  None at all.

 

God's possible existence doesn't matter, one way, or the other.

 

Without facts, all we have is opinion.
