GOD TRULY EXISTS

By St. Anselm

Well then, Lord, You who give understanding to faith, grant
me that I may understand, as much as You see fit, that You exist as we believe
You to exist, and that You are what we believe You to be. Now we believe that
You are something than which nothing greater can be thought. Or can it be that
a thing of such a nature does not exist, since the Fool has said in his heart,
there is no God [Ps. xiii. I, lii. I]? But surely, when this same Fool hears
what I am speaking about, namely,

GOD TRULY EXISTS

By St. Anselm

Well then, Lord, You who give understanding to faith, grant
me that I may understand, as much as You see fit, that You exist as we believe
You to exist, and that You are what we believe You to be. Now we believe that
You are something than which nothing greater can be thought. Or can it be that
a thing of such a nature does not exist, since the Fool has said in his heart,
there is no God [Ps. xiii. I, lii. I]? But surely, when this same Fool hears
what I am speaking about, namely,
something-than-which-nothing-greater-can-be-thought, he understands what he
hears, and what he understands is in his mind, even if he does not understand
that it actually exists. For it is one thing for an object to exist in the
mind, and another thing to understand that an object actually exists. Thus,
when a painter plans beforehand what he is going to execute, he has [the
picture] in his mind, but he does not yet think that it actually exists because
he has not yet executed it. However, when he has actually painted it, then he
both has it in his mind and understands that it exists because he has now made
it. Even the Fool, then, is forced to agree that
somethingthan-which-nothing-greater-can-be-thought exists in the mind, since he
understands this when he hears it, and whatever is understood is in the mind. And
surely that-than-which-a-greater-cannot-be-thought cannot exist in the mind
alone. For if it exists solely in the mind even, it can be thought to exist in
reality also, which is greater. If then
that-than-which-a-greater-cannot-bethought exists in the mind alone, this same
that-than-which-a-greater-cannotbe-thought is
that-than-which-a-greater-can-be-thought. But this is obviously impossible.
Therefore, there is absolutely no doubt that
something-than-whicha-greater-cannot-be-thought exists both in the mind and in
reality
