My argument is "The Supreme and Ultimate Reality". I want to make it clear that I have nothing to do with my argument. I am simply framing the debate, and pointing to the one who is making the case.Dermot claims that "the supreme and ultimate reality" is an argument that commits a bare assertion fallacy"In philosophical terms, your argument commits a “bare assertion fallacy” i.e. the argument is assumed to be true merely because it says it is true, and it offers no supportive premise other than qualities inherent in the original statement it purports to prove. After all, the same ontological argument could be used to prove the existence of any perfect thing at all."To make this clear, Dermot is claiming that the supreme and ultimate reality.... Not me... Not anything I'm saying... but THE SUPREME AND ULTIMATE REALITY is a bare assertion fallacy.
Merriam-Webster defines "God" as "The supreme and/or ultimate reality".When someone makes the claim that there is no "God", they are literally saying, "There is no ultimate reality".Ultimately, behind all the deception, this is what the God debate is truly about. People may claim all sorts of things about ultimate reality, and there are many different faiths that say different things about the ultimate reality. However, this is not a debate about doctrine. This is not a debate about whether or not this is an acceptable definition of the word "God". It is simply a debate about whether or not there is in fact an ultimate reality, knowable or not.This is the God that I believe in. This is the God that I acknowledge. Whether or not you consider this God, do you or do you not believe in the existence of ultimate reality or not? Why?
