Ontological Limericks
#1
Ontological Limericks
On another forum this fellow kept trying to get me to respond to his cheesy ontological arguments. I sarcastically called his arguments "little limericks". This week I have pondered this and realized ontological arguments are as valid as limericks.  So I wrote one and invite you all to do the same.

With Ontology a god is proposed
Using logic that is loosely composed
Replace but one word
With one more absurd
And a Teapot is easily imposed

This may be the worst thing I have ever posted so I expect some rotten eggs.

Don't worry bro, it can hardly be worse than mine I just wrote:

"The greatest being of which I can imagine,
that makes as little sense as the Genie of Aladdin,
The being is even greater if it is existent,
and if from logic I am clearly distant
So duh it must exist because non-sequitur.
And when it comes to making sense I need intensive care.
...in other news I'm biased and obsessed with a supernatural authority
...and I clearly fail to realize that existence is not a property."

[Yes I know I can't even do syllables, lol].

Anslem the most sanctimonius,
Had a theory that sounded harmonius.
Nine hundred years later,
A perfect creator,
Is intellectually erroneous.

- Look at this Charles. It's a new book called 'Why men don't listen and women can't read maps'.
- What are you talking about Edna, of course I can read a map.

I know how they work but that requires counting and effort lol.

Silly bulls?!

Blackadder’s Christmas Carol Wrote:Prince: Well, I must say, Bladder, that was damn clever!

Edmund: Yes, another great Christmas tradition: explaining the rules eight times to the Thicky Twins. The round hasn't in fact started yet. It's got to be a specific book. For instance, if it was The Bible, I would go like that [holding up two fingers] to indicate that there are two syllables in it...

Prince: Two what?

Edmund: Two syllables.

Prince: Two silly bulls? I don't think so, Blackadder -- not in The Bible. I can remember a fatted calf, but, as I recall, that was quite a sensible animal. Oh, ah! It's it, um, er, Noah's Ark, with the, er, two pigs, two ants, and two silly bulls? Is that it?

Edmund: Two syllables.

Prince: What?

Edmund: Look, we’re getting confused; let’s start again, shall we?

Prince: No, let’s not, Blackadder. I think the whole game’s getting a bit sylla, to be honest. How about a nice Christmas story instead?

My god's got a ton of omnipotence,
and solid amount of omniscience.
But some dude yelled "whence
Omni-benevolence"
And theodicy killed my adherence!

(yes yes yes I know the minor rhyme is the same as the major rhyme but it still works when read in limerick meter Big Grin)
How will we know, when the morning comes, we are still human? - 2D

Don't worry, my friend.  If this be the end, then so shall it be.

*ignores OP title completely*

There was a young lad from D.C.
Who pondered a deep mystery.
He said, "I'll never know
If to heav'n I'll go,
But I know the priest oft comes in me."

That was so bad it was almost good. Almost. Big Grin
