I agree, it is not an argument for God.

So you believe that God is less great than a maximally great being?

No, I believe these arguments really prove nothing.

I notice how much you post a lot on the religion forums and have had a decent amount of debates on religious things. Is it cause you actually really desire to know? Or is it for another motive? I'm just curious. Your a pretty intelligent person from what I've seen too.

I do not have any devious motives or anything of that sort. I simply find subjects dealing with the existence of God to be rather fascinating.
