Proportion of Cause to Effect

From Stargate SG-1 Episode 9.03 ("Origin"):

MITCHELL: A lot of folks out there are gonna buy what these guys are sellin'.

TEAL'C: Hopefully now many have been educated to the ways of false gods.

VALA: Yes, but we're not talking about humans with snakes in their heads and slightly better understanding of technology.

DANIEL: See, the power isn't false. The Priors are going to offer to people what seems like proof of God.

LANDRY: Proof of powerful beings is not proof of God.

DANIEL: I'm not saying it is.


Science fiction is always a great source of philosophy examples.
