I’ve been working on a refutation of Anselm’s ontological argument for the existence of God. What I have is short and sweet.

  1. By Anselm, if it can be imagined, the greatest, then because existing is greater than nonexistence, it must exist.
  2. Therefore, if it can be imagined, the least, it cannot exist. Therefore there is no least AT ALL, by the same argument.
  3. Reductio ad absurdum.
See if you can tell if this works or not.
