Scott Adams is a funny guy

Even when he’s not satirizing corporate life, Scott Adams can be pretty funny. For example, on The Dilbert Blog he writes:

In order to be certain that God doesn’t exist, you have to possess a godlike mental capacity – the ability to be 100% certain. A human can’t be 100% certain about anything. Our brains aren’t that reliable. Therefore, to be a true atheist, you have to believe you are the very thing that you argue doesn’t exist: God.

Isn’t that cute? Let’s try the same thing with good old Santa:

In order to be certain that Santa doesn’t exist, you have to possess a godlike mental capacity – the ability to be 100% certain. A human can’t be 100% certain about anything. Our brains aren’t that reliable. Therefore, to truly deny the existence of Santa, you have to believe you are God.

Some fun, eh?

In order to be certain that the tooth fairy doesn’t exist, you have to possess a godlike mental capacity – the ability to be 100% certain. A human can’t be 100% certain about anything. Our brains aren’t that reliable. Therefore, to deny the tooth fairy, you have to believe you are God.

In order to be certain that the Flying Spaghetti Monster doesn’t exist, you have to possess a godlike mental capacity – the ability to be 100% certain. A human can’t be 100% certain about anything. Our brains aren’t that reliable. Therefore, to deny the FSM, you have to believe you are God.

In order to be certain that witchcraft doesn’t exist, you have to possess a godlike mental capacity – the ability to be 100% certain. A human can’t be 100% certain about anything. Our brains aren’t that reliable. Therefore, to deny witchcraft, you have to believe you are God.

Yeah, that last one has some real practical implications. I suppose those of us who aren’t Gods ought to go back and have a closer look at the history of Salem, MA.
