Contrarian Philosophy of Religion Assertion Friday

Plantinga appears to have been wrong: the crucial premise of his modal ontological argument -- viz., that a maximally great being (as Plantinga understands that notion) is metaphysically possible -- is contrary to reason. For the notion of a being that is the creator of all other concrete objects distinct from himself is on a par with the concept of the creator and sustainer of round squares, as both entail a metaphysical impossibility.
