Is Cecil God?

GOd knows everything.

Cecil knows everything.

From which springs the inevitable conclusion: Cecil is indeed God.

So, is He?

Cecil did not know where street el came from.

He would need omnipotence as well in order to qualify for supreme being.

So, No.
Hmmm. Where will the moderators move this thread? Could be GQ, but they’re all probably afraid of making Manny the Mover mad. Could be MPSIMs, but it’s a question, though probably not serious. Might even belong in ATMB. IMHO? Nyahh. I got a sawbuck on MPSIMS.

Wood floats.

Ducks float.

From which forms the inevitable conclusion: Ducks are made of wood.

So, are they?

Cecil turned me into a newt.

Yet another ironic reply by Scylla.

From Websters:

Inflected Form(s): plural -nies

1 : a pretense of ignorance and of willingness to learn from another

adroit questioning – called also Socratic irony
2 a : the use of words to express something other than and especially
the opposite of the literal meaning b : a usually humorous or sardonic
literary style or form characterized by irony c : an ironic expression or
3 a (1) : incongruity between the actual result of a sequence of events

such incongruity b : incongruity between a situation developed in a
drama and the accompanying words or actions that is understood by
the audience but not by the characters in the play – called also
dramatic irony, tragic irony”

I fail to see the irony.

Another point in favor of the hypothesis: Like God, Cecil is never seen except by his prophet (i.e., editor).

A newt?

Well IMO neither exist so it doesn’t really matter .

Well. . . .he got better.

Well, if you spell “Cecil Adams” backwards you come up with “Smada Licec,” and if you spell “Holy Spirit” backwards you get “Tirips Yloh.” Coincidence? I think not.

What else floats?


hold on…

this does
Not fit your comment.
This is because you
Do believe that ducks are made of wood.

of course

IMHO morris scores. BTW the text wraps: you don’t need to hit return.

Cats are meat-eating animals.
Dogs are meat-eating animals.
Therefore cats are dogs.

Now, let us examine the original premise, without the logical fallacy.

What constitutes your definition of God? Does Cecil fulfill all the qualifications thereof? Is he the only entity which does? When you have answered these questions, you will have discovered you already knew the answer.

Thank you. Please applaud using only one hand; we don’t want to wake up any sleeping Administrators or Moderators.


Socratic irony is pretty specific and doesn’t fit the form of my reply.

Socratic Irony would be more like this:

“Cecil is God? That’s very interesting. Please tell me me more so that I can understand.”

It is also usually referred to as “Socratic irony.”

Had Quasar said “another Socratically ironic post by Scylla.” He still would have been in error, but I probably would have let him slide.

You on the other hand need to demonstrate the A priori existence of the soul as punishment for your misinterpretation :slight_smile:

the real… question here… is not whether Cecil Adams is God…

JB, ya made my week. Wonder how many others caught the reference.


I found it to be highly logical.
