And the number of physical determinists has declined dramatically since the discovery of quantum mechanics. (Even though there are deterministic models of it, e.g. by Bohm.)
Interesting. Doesn't physicalism entail physical determinism?
(And no, I don't think physicalism implies physical determinism. It may hold that there is nothing beyond the - non-deterministic - physical world.)
I have heard an objection to the ontological argument.It goes like this: "possible worlds do not exist".I said to the atheist that "possible worlds are complete description of the actual world" and I was able to win the debate but how should I have dealt with it?I showed many things that require possible worlds in order to conclude.For example this:"If A and B are different in some possible world, then A and B are not the same thing"But how can I convince an atheist who says that possible worlds aren't there?Should I use possible universes?
Most people who say possible worlds don't exist, don't understand the argument. What was his exact objection?
