Although the video is a cartoon, Alvin Plantinga is actually a pretty prominent philosopher of religion in the analytic tradition. This cartoon was just a cartoon _about_ his argument. You can read a little bit more about him here:

Do you mean the "Mary" commenting on the metaforum, or is there a Mary in the video? (Or I guess since we're discussing Plantinga, you could mean Monica Bellucci).

Plantinga's entire career is based on hyper-ad hoc justification of ultimately untenable faith commitments that themselves cannot survive meta criticism against alternative faiths. His modal stuff was his best, but challenging evolution? Give me a fucking break.

For example, the modal ontological argument video leverages possibility that god exists against necessity that god exists as either/or--it is necessary or impossible. But that overlooks the basic question: is existence *ever* a question beyond what the logical requirements are for the sufficiency of describing any possible world, and making existence then a function of those requirements ala Russell? Since the description of god as maximal being *posits as an assumption* that it is sufficient for being described in all possible worlds, then it in effect answers that question by begging it--it does not demonstrate that the concept of god as maximal is in fact not impossible (that god is *not* like 1 does not equal 1). So Plantinga just again begs the ontological argument question. The fact that it is posed in a law of exclusion disjunction is unimpressive.

Brian Leiter actually posted this without insulting Plantinga. Has Hell officially frozen over?

Cesare,

If by "hell" you mean the past. I think they were actually friends back in grad school? Not sure what happened though.

Plantinga is like a generation older than Leiter, duh.

Are you trying to say Leiter is ageist or something? Anyway, they overlapped at Michigan.
