    That is in no way proof that Spiderman exists. It may be proof that Spider-Man exists, however.

    This is an irrational argument known (oddly enough) as the Spiderman Fallacy:

    “An atheist that I was dialoging with last week tried to support his disbelief in Jesus through the use of the “Spiderman fallacy”, which is a contrived argument that has been defined in the following way by Urban Dictionary:

    Archaeologists 1,000 years from now unearth a collection of Spiderman comics. From the background art, they can tell it takes place in New York City. NYC is an actual place, as confirmed by archaeology. However, this does not mean that Spiderman existed.

    Often used to illustrate the flaw in the assertion by evangelical Christians that archaeologists unearthing biblical cities today “proves” that the Bible was written by a supernatural force.

    The Spiderman Fallacy is committed any time the discovery of a mundane element from a myth, legend, or story is taken to mean that ALL other parts of that story, even the supernatural, are also true.

    Let me explain why I believe atheists should not use this argument to try and support their skeptical position on the Bible and/or whether Jesus actually existed.”

    I’ve read the article ‘jesus and the spider-man fallacy’, and I’m not convinced – you’ve altered the story to suit your argument.

    The bible describes ‘god’ and that is held as proof that he exists. It’s that simple.
    I hold up “The Amazing Spider-man” and claim proof that Spider-Mand exists.

    Each ‘book’ has ‘facts’ that support the story, and each contain’real world’ truth, that we can relate to to support the ‘realism’

    There’s really no difference.

    You argue authorship – Luke was not alive when Jesus was, and therefore took the stories second hand – maybe third, fourth. He offers no solid evidence, just stories.

    All the learned Christian scholars in the world can claim the gospels are biographies – but that alone does mean they are accurate biographies. This is a straw man.

    And you do a similar thing with Lazarus: a Christian professor tells us the bible is true because thats what the bible says. It’s a circular argumant that takes us nowhere.

    Finally, the skeptic needs no faith to say ‘miracles don’t exist’ – it’s up to the beliver to find evidence that they do. This is EXACTLY the point of the Spider-Man claim – if you say we must take Jesus and Miracles on Faith – How can you deny Spider-Man the same privilege?

      Oh come on Thewhyman, at least: google a rebuttle, copy/paste it, and alter it slightly. Don’t let logic get in the way of your beliefs.

    You are suggestin that some thing as real and powerful as God is a fictional cartoon character. There is one difference I can make right off the top of my head. The Earth is in perfect rations to sustain life. No big bang can do that.

    Fallacy of false assumption:
    The author of the Spiderman movie does not claim that Spiderman exist.
