''God Is That Than Which No Greater Can Be Thought''

St. Anselm is featured on the History of Ancient and Medieval Philosophy exam I'll take tomorrow morning, and he is also my special patron for 2007, courtesy of the very dear Moneybags at A Catholic Life.

St. Anselm also sort of makes my brain hurt (see the title of this post for an idea why), so this should make for a fun year. I'm looking forward to getting to know him better in 2007.

Go here to learn more about St. Anselm of Canterbury.

His argument for the existence of God, though maybe a little circular, is brilliant. Anyone seriously saying that God does not exist must contend with Anselm, or not be serious.

Most people who say God is not real are actually saying that some idea they have of God cannot possibly be God, therefore, God does not exist. But they are usually not thinking of God when they think of the thing which cannot exist because they are not thinking of that than which nothing greater can be thought.

Ok, I need to sit down. My head is spinning.
