Ep. 35 The Ontological Argument
Release Date: 09/03/2018
There’s a bit of a role reversal in this episode. Tim interviews me about my favorite argument for God’s existence: the Ontological Argument. Not only is the argument extremely controversial, but it also has an incredibly rich intellectual history, so it makes for a fascinating episode.
Even if you don’t find the Ontological Argument convincing (many Christians don’t), I think there is value in discussing it. The concept of a maximally great being is a very fruitful theological idea that can help to resolve disputes between different theological positions.
