God is logically impossible.
I get it now:
(via Pablo Moroe)
Do shadows…. have shadows? It’s something to not think about.
Oxygen doesn’t cast a shadow.
Oh well, I guess that means there are no photons in the universe.. But as long as we have decisive proof there’s no god, it’s clearly worth it. 😉 Lights out, everyone!
Shadows don’t have shadows, therefore shadows don’t exist, therefore nothing has a shadow, therefore nothing exists. QED
The sad thing is, this actually sounds like the logic of the ontological argument.
I feel the need to say: “the negated existential quantifier is misplaced.” That is all.
Indeed Miko, it should be placed before God. Only if God does not exist where would before him be? Oh wait, I had my Creationist Moron Auto-Confusion Compounder set to full-Hovind.
For the w.f.f “Alarm” of the Language L1, for all assignments of values to free variables a and some structure A,
Val(Alarm,A,a) = F
(/preposterously over-wrought logic in-joke)
Does the sun have a shadow?
Does a thought have a shadow?
Does sound have a shadow?
What is the shadow of the smell of a rose?
Does time have a shadow?
Does the universe have a shadow?
A hearty haha at the “but Jesus is still a friend of mine” line.
For those of you who don’t know the video from where this line originated, you can view it on Youtube.
Wait a minute. Does this mean that as soon as I close the closet door, all the stuff in there stops existing?
How do I know God doesn’t have a shadow? I don’t even know where to look for one!
What do you mean you don’t know where to look for one? God is supposedly everywhere so wherever you look there should be a shadow.
And speaking of, I’m consistently baffled by the number of people who seem to find the ontological argument ‘persuasive’ in any way…..but they’re out there!
Ooh! Good point. But…how do I know there’s not shadow everywhere?
Ooh! Ohh! I see a flaw in the proof. Sorry, there’s insufficient room in the margins of this blog to explain the flaw.
It’s Destiny who doesn’t cast a shadow!
And that last line reads “Jesus is a friend of mime” – o noes!
Air has no shadow. Gravity has no shadow. Data has no shadow.
