God versus the Multiverse: An Ontological Argument against the Existence of a Supreme Being: With a Hopeful Alternative

Anselm’s ontological argument for the existence of God is examined. It is concluded that Anselm errs in assuming the greatest "thing" must be a sentient being. The existence of God, then, is not established by Anselm’s argument, and is concluded to be unlikely for other reasons as well, one being that a perfected sentient being would be a logical impossibility. An afterlife and personal immortality are not precluded however; these goals could be reached by future scientific means. For now cryonics is advocated as a means to reach a more advanced future when death may be physically overcome
