The Existence of Chuck Norris

Objection 1. It seems that Chuck Norris does not exist; because if one of two contraries be infinite, the other would be altogether destroyed. But the word "Chuck Norris roundhouse kick" means that it is infinite painfulness. If, therefore, Chuck Norris existed, there would be no evil discoverable; but there is evil in the world. Therefore Chuck Norris does not exist.

On the contrary, It is said of Chuck Norris: "He hath counted to infinity - twice." (www.chucknorrisfacts.com)

I answer that, the existence of Chuck Norris can be proved in five ways . . .

The first and more manifest way is the argument from motion. It is certain, and evident to our senses, that in the world roundhouse kicks are in motion. Now whatever is in motion is put in motion by another, for nothing can be in motion except it is in potentiality to that towards which it is in motion; whereas a thing moves inasmuch as it is in act. For motion is nothing else than the reduction of Chuck Norris’ enemy from actuality to potentiality. But nothing can be reduced from actuality to potentiality, except by something in a state of actuality. Therefore, roundhouse kicks must be put in motion by another. But this cannot go on to infinity, because then there would be no first kicker, and, consequently, no kicked. Therefore it is necessary to arrive at a first kicker, kicked by no other; and this everyone understands to be Chuck Norris.

The second way is from the nature of the roundhouse kick. In the world of bar fights we find there is an order of roundhouse kicks. There is no case known (neither is it, indeed, possible) in which a roundhouse kick is found to be able to hurt Chuck Norris; for so it would be kicking himself (resulting in the destruction of Chuck Norris), which is impossible. Now in roundhouse kicks it is not possible to go on to infinity, because the universe cannot contain more than one Chuck Norris. Now to take away the cause is to take away the effect. Therefore, if there be no Chuck Norris, there will be no ultimate roundhouse kick, nor any intermediate roundhouse kick, nor anyone’s butt to receive the kick; all of which is plainly false. Therefore it is necessary to admit a first roundhouse kicker, to which everyone gives the name of Chuck Norris.

The third way is taken from possibility and necessity, and runs thus. We find in nature things that are possible to be roundhouse kicked and not to be, since they are found to be angering Chuck Norris and not angering Chuck Norris, and consequently, they are possible to be and not to be. But it is impossible for these always to be being roundhouse kicked, for that which is possible not to be roundhouse kicked at some time is not being roundhouse kicked. Therefore, if everything is possible not to be roundhouse kicked, then at one time there could have been nothing being roundhouse kicked. Now if this were true, even now there would be nothing being roundhouse kicked, because that which does not get roundhouse kicked only begins to be roundhouse kicked by something already existing. Therefore we cannot but postulate the existence of some being having of itself its own roundhouse kickedness, and not receiving it from another, but rather causing in others their necessity (and pain). This all men speak of as Chuck Norris.

The fourth way is taken from the gradation to be found in roundhouse kicks. Among roundhouse kicks there are some more and some less good, true, noble and painful. But "more" and "less" are predicated of different things, according as they resemble in their different ways something which is the maximum, as it is written in Metaph. ii. Now the maximum in any genus is the cause of all in that genus; therefore there must also be something which is to all beings the cause of their being roundhouse kicked; and this we call Chuck Norris.

The fifth way is taken from the governance of the world. We see that things which lack intelligence, such as natural bodies, act for an end, and this is evident from their acting always, or nearly always, in the same way, so as to obtain the best result. Now whatever lacks intelligence cannot move towards an end, unless it be directed by some being endowed with the ability to kick its butt. Therefore some intelligent being exists by whom these things are directed to their end; and this being we call Chuck Norris.

Reply to Objection 1. As Chuck Norris says: "I don't step on toes, I step on necks!” Since Chuck Norris is the hardest kicker, he would not allow any evil to exist unless his roundhouse kicks were such as to bring good even out of evil. This is part of the infinite badassness of Chuck Norris: that he should allow evil to exist, and out of it produce good – the good of having something to roundhouse kick.

This is hands down the funniest post I have ever read. Maybe you should call it the 'Five Kicks.' But I must say, your work is only half done: Can the existence of Chuck Norris be demonstrated entirely on a priori grounds in the manner of Anselm? I'll even settle for a modal version.

(1)There is a possible world in which there is an entity which possesses maximal roundkicked-ness.

"if I find in myself a desire for maximal round-kickedness which no experience in this world can satisfy,
the most probable explanation is that maximal-roundkickedness exists only in Chuck Norris"

How about Van Tilian?

"Without the existence of Chuck Norris one does not even have the grounds to argue that there is no Chuck Norris."

(Plus, if Chuck Norris was found to not exist he'd get so angry that he would come to exist just to roundhouse kick the argument's butt.)

Good points, but if you were to bring this up to Chuck, expect a swift and deadly round-house kick to the face for spoutin' all that fancy talk.

Little redheaded Chucky has been reading these posts and has not only concluded that big Chuck exists, but that big Chuck must be little Chucky’s father. Now the existence of little Chucky himself has been validated based on the logic exposed so brilliantly in prior posts. Chucky, so impressed, will one day try to take a stab at classical logic himself. Can't wait for the movie!
