Quote# 13161

T = people do speak in tounges (read: talk in languages that they don't know) and interpret them (read: understand languages they don't know)
G = the Christian God exists

T -> G
~G -> ~T

Because T, therefore G.

Thank God (excuse the phrase). I thought this was going to be JohnR7 talking about genetics and language...

Because people blabber on in sounds that resemble a language god exists?

In that case, people talk about evolution all the time without knowing anything about evolution. Therefore evolution exists.

More twisted logic (or rather non-logic).

Hmmm... I'm sure he's trying to say something...

The symbolic logic is sound, but it uses a false premise. It's about as sound as \"Because the ancient Greeks sacrificed to Zeus, Zeus exists.\"

Sounds like this kid is just a freshman in high school who's just learned sy mbolic logic for the first time.

This quote is too witless and asinine to deserve even the mildest parody!

Your brain should hurt after this exercise in mental gymnastics. Or more accurately, contortionism.

Your first premise is wrong and begs the question.

Your second premise is a baseless assertion.

Your logic is therefore flawed. Go back to Philosophy 101.

Anybody can spew a whole bunch of babble and then \"interpret\" it later on. Its when they're actually speaking another language that you've got something worth talking about.

$%#&*^%$ = string of uncomplimentry adjectives and expletives used to proceed the name of a particularly obtuse, Fundie butthead.

This is what happens when fundie kids take their first semester Logic course. They find \"new\" and \"interesting\" ways to say things.

You too? Not that this is any kind of improvement.

You're an insult to every philosopher that ever lived. Please bury yourself in the garden and pray the angry zombie of Aristotle doesn't find you.

FIRST: There has never been a single, documented, verified case of anyone, EVER, speaking coherently in a language they do not know. (Unless you count Hollywood.)

SECOND: \"Glossiana,\" the act of \"speaking in tongues\" you are talking about, is a meaningless string of gibberish words that no one understands, not even the person doing it.

THIRD: In the Book of Acts, \"speaking in tongues\" is described as the ability to be prefectly understood in whatever language the listener understands, simultaneously with other listeners in their own languages. That is truly a miracle. Why would God change his miracle to a kind of fundie perfomance art without meaning or message?

FOURTH: Even if a verified account of true speaking in tongues did occur, how is that proof that the Christian god is responsible...? Couldn't it be argued that it proves the existence of Zeus, or Shiva, or maybe any of a million Hindu gods? What will you do if this hypothetical true event occurs, and the \"prophet\" beings to extoll the virtues of the Flying Shaghetti Monster...? Will you convert since this is aparently the one condition for the verification of a deity?

FIFTH: With apolgies to Douglas.
\"I refuse to prove that I exist,\" says God, \"for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.\"
\"Ah, but speaking in tongues proves you exist,\" says SuperTails92, \" so therefore you don't.\"
\"Oh dear, says God, \"I hadn't thought of that.\" And promplty vanishes in a puff of logic.

....let's hope SuperTails goes looking for a zebra crossing.

Hmm...

T = Tails speaks in something that sounds like English but apparently bears no actual resemblance to the language
G = Goats have tails, and have been known to make sounds that are similar to speech

Therefor... um... Tails is a goat? Seems at least as logical as this speaking-in-tongues thing.

ED: Sandman, no need for apologies, I think he'd approve.

What is it with Fundies and their fucked up math? Please, I'm begging you...make it stop.

I actually know a person who used to be very religious and would speak in tongues. She said that she felt so pressured to do it by those around her that she just made it up as she went along. I wouldn't be surprised if this is how it starts and after awhile you start to believe it is true.
