Such as, I'm aware that I'm breathing. I can observe the world around me. I can feel. etc... but that doesn't Prove that I exist. I thought this might be a good question for my first post, and a way I may introduce myself.

Fhbradley wrote:I am not a Theist. However, as of late, I have been finding the arguments for God's existence more and more compelling. Here is one:
1) Either God's existence is necessary or impossible.
2) God's existence is not impossible.
3) Therefore, God's existence is necessary.
I'm sure one would right away claim the first premise is a false dichotomy, but it isn't. Essentially, if God existed, he could not exist contingently, he would have to exist necessarily (that is, exist in all possible worlds). It would be a part of his nature, just as if abstract objects existed, they would also exist necessarily. If one would then want to argue God's existence is impossible to avoid the conclusion, they would have to show that the idea of God is contradictory, or at least incoherent.
