"Maximal Evil" counter-apologetic

This isn't really useful as a counter-argument, as it just gives the apologist an argument for the existence of Satan. If your point (as I suspect) is to emphasize the absurdity of "conceptualization = proof of existence", Dawkins's own rebuttal about conceiving of a supremely smelly entity works just fine.

On second thought, it might be useful as long as you also included an example that highlighted the absurdity. Use the absurd example for direct refutation and then the evil example to move the discussion into the various topics related to it. Jdog 08:29, 28 May 2012 (CDT)
