I think that's right JPM, and it's a brute force semantic terminator also in a way. And yet, even if we accept this notion for the sake of argument we are still no closer to establishing the veracity of the claim that God exist because the argument that reality requires such a terminator begins with God already existing (out of intellectual, emotional or social necessity as it were) and does not conclude with it, for as Mr Almond asks, why does something such as a supposed necessary terminator have to be a personal entity or God or any particular god?
