As I anticipated, the discussion of the Ontological Argument for the Existence of God provoked a blizzard of comments and a guest post. I discovered long ago, when I first started teaching, that there is something uniquely irritating about that argument. As an atheist, I am an equal-opportunity doubter of Proofs for the Existence of God, but I must admit that the Ontological Argument makes me want to reach across the centuries and strangle Anselm for ever having proposed it.
But enough God Talk. I will leave that to Andrew Sullivan. [I have stopped reading his blog because his obsession with religion is so off-putting.] It is time to take at least passing notice of the real world. In the pursuit of which, will someone please explain to me the current fascination with Bitcoins?
