    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.

    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.

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