A friend on Facebook posted the following graphic:
Notice that I can’t actually win? The question at the end is loaded.
If I explain why 1-6 are fallacious, I’ve committed #7 and therefore have a hoax religion.
But I can’t show that Christianity is different from other religions without providing justifications for the first six, which means I (once again) have a hoax religion.
Well, shucks… I lose. But I wonder:
Does the fact that atheists pass this graphic uncritically from one to the next make them guilty of holding a regular groupthink meeting to reinforce belief? Of course not, they can justify that by saying no money is collected and they aren’t meeting in person.
Wait a minute…
The preceding post was meant as satire and not as a serious argument. Please don’t tell me I’m committing a tu quoque fallacy with this post. I already know that. That’s why I’m tagging it as “humor.”
