    In this paper I argue that a version of the ontological argument developed from Iris Murdoch’s ontological argument for the existence of the Good avoids common objections to the argument, and that it does so by incorporating within itself elements from other arguments for God’s existence – most notably, the moral argument, the argument from religious experience, and the cosmological argument. While I argue that it, nonetheless, remains a form of the ontological argument, it might perhaps be better described as an integrated argument for the existence of God, or, perhaps, as a fusion argument for the existence of God.
