„It is to be believed because it is absurd.“

—  Tertullian Christian theologian 155 - 230
Variant translations It is by all means to be believed, because it is absurd. It is is entirely credible, because it is inept. It is certain because it is impossible. De Carne Christi 5.4 Often paraphrased or misquoted as "Credo quia absurdum." Also paraphrased as "It is so extraordinary that it must be true." Two lines from De Carne Christi have often become conflated into the statement: "Credo quia impossibile" (I believe it because it is impossible), which can be perceived as a distortion of the actual arguments that Tertullian was making.
