Skeptripe #10: "Circular Reasoning"

Welcome back to "Skeptripe," where I expose words and phrases used by so-called "Skeptics" and Athiests that are overused, misused, or just plain stupid.

"Skeptics" and Athiests like to accuse Christians of using "circular reasoning" in arguments. As usual, this is due to "Skeptics" and Athiests' inability to see the obvious. Yes, God wrote the Bible, that's why the Bible is the only perfect book in existence, with no plot holes, errors, inconsistencies, or boring parts, unlike all those Athiest books. How else could a book written by one divine source have so many authors? It rained for 40 days and 40 nights before the Great Flood, and the Jews wandered through the desert for 40 years, and Jesus was in the desert for 40 days to be tempted--and there are Ten Commandments times Four Gospels, which equals 40! How could such divine math happen without God? And since the Bible is perfect, and the Bible says all these things happened, then we clearly know they happened, because God can't lie!

All these things are obvious, and yet the "Skeptics" will say "that's circular reasoning," as if that ends the argument! Guess what, Athiests: what's obvious is obvious, no matter what you call it. God's existence and the Bible's perfection are self-evident, and there are hundreds of arguments by clever theologians which prove that!

But let's say that the Athiests are right, and we're using "circular reasoning": so what? The circle is a perfect shape, and since the only other perfect things are God and the Bible, then "circular reasoning" must be perfect reasoning! "Circular reasoning" is God's reasoning! As usual, Athiests are trying to point out flaws in God's perfect creations, but circles are flawless, so the only way they can deny them is by Expelling these perfect arguments!

So the next time an Athiest says "that's circular reasoning," say "That's right, and therefore it's perfect. You'll never find a better argument for God."
