And Bob’s your uncle!

This is a tiny appendix to my recent large post of mine about the Fourth Way.

Ironically, saying that the Fourth Way is the worst or weakest of the Five Ways, or that the Ontological Argument is the worst argument for God’s existence, only validates those arguments. (The same holds true even if one grants that they are the best or strongest such arguments, but still rejects them as probative.) Rejecting them as inferior to their refutations only serves to buttress the minor premise of those arguments, especially the Fourth Way.
