Mathematics is also great proof of God. How is it possible that:


can be figured out by carrying a digit over the top? What if that didn't work? How would we multiply without calculators?

If carrying over the one on top of the 9 did not work, how would we multiply? Seems awfully convenient to me that it "just happened" like that?

Mathematics is proof that some people long ago were able to figure out things for themselves and eventually taught others. God had fuck-all to do with it. Besides, calculus is obviously of Satan. </snark>
Honestly, how stupid are you people?

How? How? HOW can it not HURT to be so fucking STUPID?!

And that proves a "god" how exactly? Moreover, which "god"? Allah? Yahweh? Ahura Mazda? Quetzacoatl? Zeus? The FSM?

Yeah, and another proof is that when you mix red and blue paint you get purple. I mean, how is THAT possible? And when I throw things up they always come down. Hmm, I think I want to throw up now.

jesus-face tortilla

since the numerals we use are Arabic, isn't this proof of Allah?

Number Theory Fail!

Mathematics is a manmade system... Oh what's the use.

"How would we multiply without calculators?"

You christianists will just have to limit your calculations to numbers less than 10.

Unless . . .

Carrying over proves god? What the fuck is this shit??? Might as well just declare the ampersand as irrefutable proof of gods existence while you are at it.

And considering the Europeans didn't know how to do that until they learned it from the Muslims, who built on the number system developed by the Hindus, does that mean that God told the Hindus and Muslims about it first?

8/9/2011 9:56:00 AM

And it doesn't fucking work in anything other than a base10 system...

As per normal fundies take an invention of mankind, and since they're too stupid to figure it out, claim that only an omniscient being could have invented it.

8/9/2011 10:05:41 AM


fuckin Arabic numerals, how do they work?

Poe. This simply has to be a poe.

That's right! It's proof of the existence of Urania, muse of astronomy and mathematics!

What? I really think you have the cart before the horse here. The only way this is proof is if you first assume that God exists, and then it still isn't proof. If this is logic, then you could point to anything and claim that it is proof of God. Oh wait, you fundies already do that.

Yeah, and how did 2 know it's supposed to come after 1? God must have told it to, otherwise it might have come after 987. How did rocks know that we were going to use them as weapons? How did our ears know to be in just the right place for us to wear glasses? Or the real question: why do so many theists think that taking a human construct and turning the causality ass-backwards is a good argument for god?

8/9/2011 10:36:01 AM

Calculators are not magic. They do nothing but speed up what we could do ourselves.

8/9/2011 10:38:21 AM


What do you mean? XCVII times LXII doesn't carry a one.
That's proof God doesn't exist, right?

8/9/2011 10:50:07 AM


If you're so smart, how come God's Chosen People didn't think up Arabic Numbers?

Well it does! The Holy Ampersand is the foundation of all Faith, proving that there is a mighty AND keeping everything together as one whole, perfect, holy union.
