Personal Stregnths and weaknesses - The Personal Strengths and Weaknesses of Lindsay Nanna When I first came across this assignment, I was quite apprehensive.

Anselm and the Proof for the Existence of God - ... One of the main ideas of Christianity is that God requires people to have faith but if he is proven to exist then people would know rather than believe. Since the proof is so heavily based on faith, then proof is unnecessary because there is no need to believe. Another other weakness found in the argument of Anselm is that existance is a predicate. This weakness comes from the objections of Immanual Kant on Anselm's argument. Kant states that ‘Being’ is obviously not a real predicate; that is, it is not a concept of something which could be added to the concept of a thing....   [tags: strengths, weaknesses, objections] 989 words
