I posted this image on Facebook the other day, after stealing it off somebody else’s timeline, and I was amazed at the amount of discussion it generated.
I hereby accept Spider-man as my personal saviour.
The joke is of course mocking people who like to quote “the word” as proof of God’s existence. If you can accept that, then you might as well accept a Spider-man comic as proof of Spider-man’s existence, right? All praise Spider-man!
Here’s the thing: According to your logic, God exists because you accept that the nonsense written down thousands of years ago, by some cattle-sacrificing nomads in the Middle East, is the literal word of God, whose existence you presuppose. In other words, you believe in God because God.
Look, you made a circle!
Seriously, I can’t think of a better example of circular logic.
