On one reading of the doctrine of divine simplicity, God is identical with divinity. If divinity is a property, this entails that at least one property is a person. A lot of people think this is absurd. I am holding an argument contest–with modest prizes ($50 amazon gift certificate for the best argument; $30 amazon gift certificate for a random entrant subject to some conditions)–for arguments against the thesis that at least one property is a person. See here for rules and how to enter. Comments should be placed there.
