("With God all things are possible." Matthew 19:26)
Appropriate to the argument: a spell-checker is useful, but only by definition if it is used. One can imagine the most perfect spell-checker in the world, but it becomes a spell-checker — that is, a thing which actually checks spelling — when it exists outside the imagination.

(Existence of Spellchecker.)
As someone has said of the Anselmian argument, you can almost see the rabbit being put into the hat. I think Thomas Aquinas's arguments (5 ways) for the existence of God are much stronger.

I’ve always thought it strange that St. Anselm is noted primarily for his circular Ontological Argument, and his theory of the Atonement, neither of which holds water.
