What's the difference between a Ontological Paradox and a Predestination Paradox?

Google knows everything.
 
Of or relating to the argument for the existence of God holding that the existence of the concept of God entails the existence of God.

The act of predestining or the condition of being predestined.
Theology.
The doctrine that God has foreordained all things, especially that God has elected certain souls to eternal salvation.
The divine decree foreordaining all souls to either salvation or damnation.
The act of God foreordaining all things gone before and to come.
Destiny; fate.

An assertion that is essentially self-contradictory, though based on a valid deduction from acceptable premises.
 
Ontological Paradox from what I've gathered deals with the present person being visited by their future self, while predestination deals with the present person going into the past to manipulate the circumstances of their own existance.
 
yes, but in the first one, God wears bigger pants. scabby crusty y-fronts, to be exact. So Im still most right.

Yes, I suppose that does clear that up, thank you.
 
Is this for your script on the guy who sleeps with the star he idolizes?

It's awesome how unsure of that you are. The self-Socratic method :up:
 
Good Comparison. I'll be Socrates. Morg can be Meletus, I'll make Morg look like a fool and they'll make me drin kpoison.
 
this thread is a blast, like that ride at Universal Studios, where the shark comes up by your boat.:up:

I redubbed the Socratic method "the art of owning"...so in effect Brodie just owned himself.
