When Last We Heard from the Wonderfully Fertile Brain of Julian Ahlquist

…he was demonstrating, with geometric logic, that the Star Wars saga is actually an allegory for the history of the Second Vatican Council.  No one can argue with this, I believe.  He deserves a combined Templeton/Nobel Prize for this blog post alone.

However, not content to rest on his laurels, he continues to give the world fresh insights.  He writes:

Hope you’re doing well.  I was just wondering if you could post a link to my new website:

www.thomism.org

(yep, I own thomism.org somehow)

So, far there’s only one page on it so far but a good one (the homepage automatically will redirect to: http://www.thomism.org/atheism/atheist_logic.html), namely a long list of “syllogisms” I’ve written that make fun of typical atheist arguments.  It’s the opposite of what some atheists (namely “Godless Geeks”) did to theistic arguments (http://www.godlessgeeks.com/LINKS/GodProof.htm).  I think it shall not fail to amuse.

Much appreciated.  God bless.

Julian, like all the rest of the Ahlquist clan, never fails to delight, educate and amuse.  My hope is that the dude who writes the WWJTD blog here on Patheos (who seems to have a somewhat stalkerish fascination with my blog) will take his herd of independent minds who all affirm each other in their okayness by denouncing me and head on over to Julian’s, where they can have the novel experience of seeing someone using his intellect and not merely worshipping it (as they habitually do).

    Well there goes my entire morning.
    On a related note, can we use this next time an atheist trolls here by just replying to him with the number of the argument he’s making?

    That’s fantastic! Thanks for sharing. I love it how successive proofs build on the previous ones – you read one and think, “Hm, that’s funny” then read the next and it develops the joke and gives you a real chuckle.

    Next step – set up the site so each proof has its own link for ease of posting as per Evan’s idea.

    I don’t know. #44 is pretty persuasive, actually.

    Edit: Oh, and about #55: Skepticism doesn’t necessarily mean default disbelief. It just means (or, at least, is *supposed* to mean) using critical thinking to avoid being gullible. So a skeptic could see a miracle (and let’s just say it is a miracle for the sake of the point I’m trying to make), be convinced that it is indeed a miracle, and still be a skeptic. That is, he would still have to be convinced the next time a miracle happens, rather than just assuming that because miracles exist, this one must be real, too.

    That’s not to say there might not be an actual No True Scotsman behind #55, if the atheist assumes that anyone who believes in a miracle is no longer a skeptic.
