Geach I 264
Proof of God's Existence/BuridanVs: (Sophismata): counterevidence to the existence of God: For example, if one says "a God" or "a horse", one has not said anything that can be true or false. But if you add the verb "exists", then one does. Something is added.
Joking argument: before the creation of the world, when God was alone, the "something added" could mean nothing. Therefore, it was not true. Therefore, God does not exist.
Geach: of course, that was not meant seriously and was also a confusion in the use of "something more".
