I've read about modal ontological arguments for the existence of God, and it seems some atheists think that the same sort of argument can be used to argue the non-existence of God:
1. If God exists, God is necessary.
2. It is possibly the case that God doesn't exist.
3. Therefore God is not necessary.
4. Therefore God doesn't exist (modus tollens, from 1)
So /lit/, what's wrong with this argument?

It's much less tedious and a quicker read, and it truly explains his writing style and thought process. In fact I'm surprised that The Pale King isn't even mentioned on this board- it's such a pivotal work preceding Infinite Jest and really the Metamodernist movement, it should gain more momentum here.
which one do i read first?

3. grav rainbow
4. brothers k
