Gödel’s Ontological Proof

From Mind Matters:


Kurt Gödel toppled a tall tower of mathematical reasoning with publication of his work showing no formal system of math could be both complete and consistent. He also gave a mathematical proof of the existence of God. Is Gödel’s proof valid? Robert J. Marks and Dr. Selmer Bringsjord discuss mathematics, Kurt Gödel, and the ontological argument.

From Wikipedia

Well, I’m far more interested in law, history, and justice as dependent on the will of God, as opposed to the will of powerful men. I take the existence of God as self-evident: if you can’t see that, you are willfully blind.

Still, I am not willing to dismiss or ignore mathematical proofs of the existence of God out of hand. Even if I can’t investigate them properly, a reader of mine might.

If you can do it, do it!
