Re: God's necessity -- is it itself necessary, or contingent?

God's existence is necessary in itself.

But God's existence itself is not accessible to the human mind, and the intrinsic necessity of His existence is not comprehensible to the human mind*, and that is why we start with the existence of things-other-than-Him and use those things as the starting point from which to work our way back to God's existence.

* (some arguments such as the Ontological argument work as if those things are accessible to human minds)
