Humorous Proofs of God’s Existence

From “Over Three Hundred Proofs of God’s Existence” (via Ephilosopher):

30. ARGUMENT FROM BLINDNESS (II)
(1) God is love.
(2) Love is blind.
(3) Ray Charles is blind.
(4) Therefore, Ray Charles is God.
(5) Therefore, God exists.

The funny thing is, some of these proofs are actually almost identical to actual proofs you’ll find by actual philosophers. Bonus points for anyone who can connect this proof to the actual philosopher from whom it is loosely cribbed:

4. ONTOLOGICAL ARGUMENT (II)
(1) I can conceive of a perfect God.
(2) One of the qualities of perfection is existence.
(3) Therefore, God exists.
