Hi, this is my first post!

Im currently studying the ontological argument and have been asked 'the ontological argument does not prove anything.' To what extent do you agree?

I have so many arguments for agreeing it proves nothing using criticisms from Aquinas, Kant, Gaunilo etc saying that you cant define something into existence.

Im struggling however on explaining whay is DOES prove other than what peoe of faoth already belkeved - that there is a possibility God exists, and that in a way reason and faith can be linked. (Speaking of Anselm)

Ive done about anselm, descartes, and criticisms such as gaunilo, kant, aquinas

If anyone could help please let me know!! Thank you.
