Daily Awesome: Aristophanes

Now here is some good reasoning about God. I get so tired of theists constantly insisting they know there is a god because of his supposed benevolence. The following is a much more reasoned approach. Leave it up to a satirist to have such keen theistic insight:

Demosthenes: What, do you really think there are gods?

Nicias: I know it.

Demosthenes: Know it! How?

Nicias: I’m such a wretched god-detested chap.

– Aristophanes, The Knights
