Godol Hador and the Babelfish
"Now it is such a bizarrely improbable coincidence that anything so mindboggingly useful could have evolved purely by chance that some thinkers have chosen to see it as the final and clinching proof of the non-existence of God. "
The argument goes something like this: 'I refuse to prove that I exist,' says God, 'for proof denies faith, and without faith I am nothing.'
"'But,' says Man, 'The Babel fish is a dead giveaway, isn't it? It could not have evolved by chance. It proves you exist, and so therefore, by your own arguments, you don't. QED.'
"'Oh dear,' says God, 'I hadn't thought of that,' and promptly vanished in a puff of logic.
Actually, the poor guy has taken to capitalize Faith and Reason, and so reading his posts is starting to feel like I'm reading the Romance of the Rose, or the Pilgrim's Progress. Instead of science fiction, maybe his next posts should be in the form of Medieval Allegories. Faith and Reason can battle, while Love and Pride watch on.
