Abstract

Godel's ontological proof is interpreted in a logically clear and sensible way without empirical and theological implications - rendering it mostly tautological interpretation-wise. Godel's ontological argument thus cannot be said to prove existence of God. The real value of Godel's ontological proof lies on the modal collapse consequence.
