I've encountered this word online. If you google "神逻辑" (with quotes) you'll find mostly instances where it's used as a standalone noun. Anyone know what it means, and maybe its origin/the explanation behind it?

  • evidently composed of 神 and 逻辑 "God logic",some say 神逻辑,就是神 , which reminds people of 神(上帝)是(一)个李群"God is a Lie group" – user6065 Apr 12 '15 at 7:05
  • 神 here means "Extra-ordinary" or even "Super-natural" – Henry HO Apr 20 '15 at 7:16

This is a slang heavily used in online communities. I am not certain when it started. It means perfect logic, usually in a joking sense. Interestingly enough, it is also a sarcastic expression often used to accuse someone of his/her peculiar, erroneous logic.

A common instance of each would be:

Sarcasm

A:「我开会没有迟到,老板应该要给我加薪。」

"I was not late for the meeting. The boss shall give me a raise?"

B:「这是什么神逻辑?」

"What kind of ('perfect') logic is that?"

Compliment

A:「如果老板不给我加薪,我钱会不够用;钱不够用,会买不起工具;买不起工具,就做不好工作;做不好工作,公司就会赔钱。所以老板一定会给我加薪。」

"If the boss does not give me a raise, I will not have enough money to use; without enough money to use, I cannot afford the tools; without the tools, I cannot do my job well; (if) I cannot do my job well, the company will make a loss. Therefore, the boss will certainly give me a raise."

B:「我服了你的神逻辑。」

"I have nothing to comment on your perfect logic."
