Tired of laughing? RationalWiki has a slightly more serious article about Ontological argument. |
- Definition 1: x is Toronto-like if and only if x has as essential properties those and only those properties which are positive
- Definition 2: A is an essence of x if and only if for every property B, x has B necessarily if and only if A entails B
- Definition 3: x necessarily exists if and only if every essence of x is necessarily exemplified
- Axiom 1: If a property is positive, then its negation is not positive
- Axiom 2: Any property entailed by—i.e., strictly implied by—a positive property is positive
- Axiom 3: The property of being Toronto-like is positive
- Axiom 4: If a property is positive, then it is necessarily positive
- Axiom 5: Necessary existence is positive
- Axiom 6: For any property P, if P is positive, then being necessarily P is positive
- Theorem 1: If a property is positive, then it is consistent, i.e., possibly exemplified
- Corollary 1: The property of being Toronto-like is consistent
- Theorem 2: If something is Toronto-like, then the property of being Toronto-like is an essence of that thing
- Theorem 3: Necessarily, the property of being Toronto-like is exemplified
QED, Toronto is God.
