Fun with the Ontological argument
WLC's version

1. It is possible that a maximally great being exists.
2. If it is possible that a maximally great being exists, then a maximally great being exists in some possible world.
3. If a maximally great being exists in some possible world, then it exists in every possible world.
4. If a maximally great being exists in every possible world, then it exists in the actual world.
5. If a maximally great being exists in the actual world, then a maximally great being exists.
6. Therefore, a maximally great being exists.


Replace "being" with "noun" and enjoy flooding the universe with random maximally great anythings.

Also you can insert numbers.

1. It is possible that ∞ maximally great beings exist.
2. If it is possible that ∞ maximally great beings exist, then ∞ maximally great beings exist in some possible world.
3. If ∞ maximally great beings exist in some possible world, then they exist in every possible world.
4. If ∞ maximally great beings exist in every possible world, then they exist in the actual world.
5. If ∞ maximally great beings exist in the actual world, then ∞ maximally great beings exist.
6. Therefore, ∞ maximally great beings exist.

And therefore you can flood the universe, with maximally great beings, using Georg Cantor's set theory with several sets of infinite numbers of infinite numbers.

Which of course leads to a contradiction cause the universe is finite, and cast infinite amounts of maximally great things into a finite space would destroy that finite space.

hahahahahaha
