What I find interesting about all these arguments is not how an individual argument can be demolished with a little careful thought. It’s the sum of them taken together that interests me. If God does exist, then one or more of these six arguments could be wrong. (I think that Lewis Carroll would have made mincemeat out of St. Anselm’s reasoning.) But if God does NOT exist, then ALL arguments in favor of God’s existence are indisputably wrong. Now, start adding. If God does not exist:
