Here’s an unexpected side effect of internet “meme culture”: You can kinda use these to start apologetics arguments.1

More words would ruin the point. So I’ll just share the image. I first saw it from my brother, posted by this page.

I once saw a similar meme that justified the problem of evil with a slogan like, “If there were no evil, there would be no Batman.” If someday I manage to re-locate this pixel wisdom, I’ll share it as well.

  1. Side note: Internet memes have basically replaced what we used to call the “Sunday comics.” These were included, at least every Sunday, in objects we called “newspapers.”
