    Anselm's ontological argument is an explanation that Anselm came up with to prove that God exists. He uses a step by step procedure to persuade you into believing that since we can picture and think of God as the greatest being, then he must exist.

Anselm also believes that whence speak of God we are speaking of ...

    3,128 words
    Throughout history there has been a concept of a greater being (s) that guided our lives. In the beginning the main idea was that of plurality and polytheism.

His efforts produced "the ontological argument" (sometimes referred to as the "argument from perfection" or the "argum...
