A '''mythical creature''' is a fictional living thing, usually an animal or animal-like organism, that exists only in [[mythology]] or [[folklore]]. Because most [[theist]]s agree that non-religious mythical creatures do not really exist, they often serve as good substitutes for [[God]] in [[counter-apologetics]], either to show the weakness of a theist's argument, or to show the reasonableness of a corresponding counter-argument.

Examples of (mostly) non-religious, mythical creatures include:

Because most theists agree that non-religious mythical creatures do not really exist, they often serve as good substitutes for God in counter-apologetics, either to show the weakness of a theist's argument, or to show the reasonableness of a corresponding counter-argument.

Example

  • Atheist: "Do you believe in leprechauns?"
  • Theist: "No."
  • Atheist: "Why not?"
  • Theist: "Because they don't exist."
