Does God Exist?

1) By Definition: God is the one and only greatest possible being.

2) By Definition: A greatest possible being has the greatest form of existence possible, which is necessary existance, or existance in all possible circumstances. (For if God could exist in some circumstances and fail to exist in other circumstance God would be a less then absolutely perfect being.)

3) It is at least possible that there is a God. (There is a God in some possible set of circumstances, whether they are actual circumstances, or fictional, yet possible, ones)

4) A God who exists in any possible circumstances exists in all possible circumstances. (from premise 2)

Therefore

5) God exists in the actual world. (In the circumstances in which we actually find ourselves.)
