Thanks VENIVIDIVICI123 for posting this. And thanks to Jos and others for commenting.

This is one of topics with which I struggle when debating christians who have studied the humanities and those who have read too much Aquinas.

When I encounter someone pushing OM it usually seems to be used as some sort of proof for a creator. Instinctively it appears to me to be irrelevant to the whole debate (for reasons I don't need to describe here). But I lack the skills to properly refute the claim.

Even though these discussions are likely over the head of many people like myself, and I don't like the idea of needing specific knowledge of philosophy or ethics to debate sophisticated Christians, I still find this useful.
