As of now I seriously doubt the validity of the ontological argument. The ontological argument can't really prove that God exists without affirming that something exists. God's existence is actually necessary but not logically necessary, because it is always logically possible that nothing ever existed (this refers to the state, not concept, of nothingness). Alvin Plantinga's argument is not a purely ontological approach, but somewhat of an a posteriori cosmological approach, since it assumes something exists.
