Will Elvis Come Again?

I’m always confused: was it Elvis who was bigger than Jesus or The Beatles?

The Ontological Argument

1. WHY GOD EXISTS … (St. Anselm)

ElvisImagine for me, if only you dare,
a being so perfect beyond compare.
But wait, you ask, “If you be so kind,
it may not exist; it’s only in mind.”
But, if that be so, it lacks perfection;
the being that is, is the better conception.
So here is the answer, as now you can see,
the most perfect being cannot, not be.

2. WHY ELVIS IS ALIVE

Imagine for me, if only you dare
a singer so perfect beyond compare
But wait, you ask, “If you be so kind,
He may not still live, he’s only in mind.”
But, if that be so, he lacks perfection;
the singer that lives, is the better conception.
So here is the answer, as now you can see,
the most perfect singer being cannot, not be.

The Ontological Argument was written by Neil Doherty and was published in The Humanist.
