A couple make me laugh but this one tops the cake - Quran - 16:79.
Do they not look at the birds, held poised in the midst of (the air and) the sky? Nothing holds them up but (the power of) Allah. Verily in this are signs for those who believe.

Yeah, there's a gap for god that closed up a long time ago. But a good theist is great at handling cognitive dissonance ... they'd just say, well, flight is no less a miracle because we understand the physical mechanism, it's still this great thing god created and still in a sense controls as the author of those physical laws. See how easy it is? ;-)

Oooookay.
My sister and mother always bring that up, and I'm like "that was likely endorphins flowing through your body which you took as good touching you... I win."

I had someone tell me that all the archaeological digs around Jerusalem that found places mentioned in the bible 'proved' god existed.

I wish I had had the presence of mind to say, 'So, all the digs in Egypt prove that Horus and Ra exist, too?'

So Paul is dead after all? The ONLY living Beatle is RINGO!?!?!?!?

At least he's Joe Walsh's brother in law, now.

It's pretty hard to top Pascal's Wager for a dumbass argument for the existence of any god.
