God’s existence may vary from philosopher to philosopher, but according to the late St. Anselm, Archbishop of Canterbury there was absolutely no doubt that God’s presence is certain, and yet the philosopher desires the understanding of faith. As stated; if god cannot be thought to exist, then whomever which may be conceived, only a fool would believe that he God does not exist. Only a fool says from his or her heart there is no God, was the largest idea discussed in the resentation quoted by Anselm.
It is one thing for an object to be in the understanding, and another to understand that objects exist, he both, has it in has understanding and he understands that it exists because he has made it. There is not a doubt that there exists a being, than which nothing greater can be conceived. And it exists both in the understanding and in reality, then, so truly than a being which nothing greater can be conceived to exist, our God?
If a mind could conceive of a being better then thee, the creature would rise above the Creator; and this is absurd. God can be conceived to not exist; but in the later, not at all. For example, no one who understands what God is can conceive that God does exist; God is that than which a greater cannot be conceived. The nonexistence of that than which a greater cannot be conceived is inconceivable.
Gaunilo’s argumentative criticism claims that in the dual existence, with understanding and in eality, for this reason it must exist. For if it does not exist, any lord who really exists will be more excellent than God. If man should try to prove to that his existence should no longer be doubted and me by such reasoning that God exists, for he ought to show first that the hypothetical excellence of God exists as a real and indubitable being or spirit, or one whose existence is uncertain in our understanding.
