“Survival of the Fittest” is the Atheist Version of “God’s Word is True Because It Says it’s True.”

People make many statements, a large portion of which make no sense after a little bit of thought.

Circular reasoning is the basis of many of our “factual” statements. When you catch one of these in action, they’re quite fun to point out.

If a guy were trying to be impressive, he would use the word “tautology.”

Tautology is being redundant, saying the same thing over again, repeating yourself. Exactly.

A tautological statement then is an “empty or vacuous statement composed of simpler statements in a fashion that makes it logically true whether the simpler statements are factually true or false; for example, the statement Either it will rain tomorrow or it will not rain tomorrow.”

Here is a classic piece of tautology widely accepted by many: Survival of the Fittest.

Pointing out the tautology of the Survival of the Fittest goes like this:

Animals who survive are the fittest.
How do you know they are the fittest?
Because they survived.
How did they survive?
Because they are the fittest.
But how do you know they are the fittest?
Because they survived.

And on and on. Survival and Fittest are equated thereby saying the say thing. Survival proves the Fitness, and Fitness proves the Survival.

A classic Christian tautology goes like this:

I believe God’s Word is true because God’s Word says it’s true.

Now, as much as you may believe God’s Word is true because it says it is, you can’t be shocked when someone who doesn’t take God’s Word as truth rejects this line of reasoning.

God’s Word is true.
How do you know God’s Word is true?
Because it says it is.
How do you know that’s true?
Because God’s Word is true.
But how do you know God’s Word is true?
Because it says it is.

Come up with something a little better. Repeating your circular reasoning will win few arguments.

If we demand higher logic out of evolutionists, perhaps we should start with us.

  1. My pet peeve is attributing this to the Bible: God helps those who help themselves. This is nowhere in the Bible…as a matter of fact “God helps those who can’t help themselves and have no business trying!” Nothing I do will please God unless Christ is doing it through me.
