In part 2 of this series, George Ortega, Chandler Klebs and Jamie Soden explore a proof of the Judeo-Christian-Islamic God based on the following commonly held attributes, which are listed on the Wiki page. They are presented here in descending order of salience; 1. Creator; 2. Ruler (Governor); 3. Omnipotence; 4. Omnipresence; 5. Omniscience; 6. Omnibenevolence; 7. Eternal Nature; 8. Personal Nature; 9. Source of Moral Obligation; 10. Incorporeality/Immateriality; 11. Divine Simplicity.
