During last Thursday’s trivia quiz we were asked to identify the philosopher that said, “If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent Him.” Unfortunately the Snook and I spent so much time arguing over whether it was Descartes or Pascal that we missed the obvious answer. (It was the always-quotable Voltaire, of course.) Anyway, I thought of that quote while reading through these 300 Proofs of God’s Existence. Pretty funny. As an agnostic I’ve never really felt compelled to try to talk someone out of their beliefs, but I can certainly understand the frustration trying to debate with someone that can’t form a decent argument.
