re: #117 Absalom, Absalom, Obdicut

If you mean that you, as an atheist, could make an explanation of the phenomena just as fallacious as the Muslim cleric, sure, but your explanation would be exactly as fallacious as his. This is actually a defeat of your argument: do you understand that? You just showed that in the Marvel universe, the atheist and the Muslim cleric are equal in their ability to coherently explain the world.

Yes, exactly. That totally destroys the validity of Islam as a specific claim to “truth” in such a world, where any explanation is valid, no? Atheism makes no such specificity to its claims, it just says “I don’t know”. In a world of chaos, kind of makes it the default position, no?
