I prefer the proofs of St. Thomas Aquinas. At least they're wordier and you have to work harder to find the fallacy.

(Miguel de Unamuno described the fallacy under most of St. Thomas' proofs thus: "I can't understand this with any other explanation; I have to understand it; ergo that must be the explanation")
