The Church of Infinitiaty Web site offers boundless proofs of the existence of an infinite number of Gods, the central tenet of Infinitiaty. Yet there is one proof that the site leaves out for some unknown reason. And it’s a proof that puts the final nails in the coffins of the monotheistic, finite-theistic and, heavens forbid, atheistic belief systems.
I should speak to the Infinitiaty Web content developer about correcting this serious omission. However, she’s currently in the witness protection program and can’t be reached. Rather than leave you ignorant, I’ll present the proof here.
I am speaking of the ontological proof of an infinite number of Gods.
Ontological Proof: Infinity is Greater than One
We can take as a given that, by its very definition, a God is the greatest thing that can be imagined. Also by definition, a God is omnipotent. But the concept of an omnipotent being is not, alone, the greatest thing imaginable. An omnipotent being that actually exists is much greater than merely the idea of such a being. Therefore, a God must, by definition, exist.
Following this line of thinking, we might ask ourselves, what would be greater than the omnipotent being contemplated by the fallacious monotheistic and finite-theistic religions?
At first glance, it would seem that nothing could be greater than an omnipotent being and, therefore, “omnipotent” and “greatest thing that can be imagined” are inexorably bonded as a single concept. But think a little longer and a little harder and you will soon come to realize that there is a greater being than the monotheistic and finite-theistic religions’ alleged gods.
An omnipotent being capable of creating another omnipotent being is clearly greater than a being that is incapable of creating an omnipotent being. Thus, to be the greatest being imaginable, a God must be capable of creating another God.
But, if that created omnipotent being is a God, then He, She or It too must be the greatest thing imaginable. Following the same logic as above, then He, She or It too must have created a God. And so on ad infinitum.
To cap off and cement this argument, consider this: Would a God be truly omnipotent if He, She or It were incapable of creating another God? Of course not. Omnipotent means all-powerful. If a God were incapable of creating another God then He, She or It would be lacking that power. He, She or It would, therefore, not be omnipotent. And when have you ever known anyone to have a power without, in the fullness of eternity, eventually using it? Never. That’s when.
Is this the end of the discussion? Is this just an philosophical thought experiment without any practical application in the spiritual world in which we live? No, of course not.
Why do I say that? Well, ask yourself this: What is greater than an omnipotent being that is merely capable of creating an omnipotent being, but has not proven that power by exercising it?
The answer, of course, is an omnipotent being that has, indeed, created another omnipotent being. Thus, a God must have created another God for it to be the greatest thing imaginable. The same is true of the God that He, She or It created. Thus, there must be an infinite number of Gods. Quod erat demonstrandum (QED).
