Last Supper Selfie

This explains why they had all gathered on one side of the table… The picture came to my attention via Facebook. I can’t quite make out the signature. Does anyone know the original source? [Read more...]

The Criterion of Damage Control

In a conversation about mythicism I had recently, some points came up that I want to share here. In addressing the claims of mythicism, I think a key point is to get the criterion of embarrassment right. I do not think anyone has ever said, as mythicists sometimes claim, that the principle is “this makes me [Read More...]

Music with a Biblical Bassist

The image comes from Stuff Fundies Like. I’m working on developing a course on the Bible and music. I’ll have to figure out how to work in this image at some point. [Read more...]

Some Things You Just Don’t Do (According to Leviticus)

People in White Coats shared the above cartoon. It highlights a number of important things, including the fact that Leviticus mandates a great deal that Christians simply do not follow, or even try to follow, but also the character of a deity envisaged as “zapping” those who do not observe the laws.

Unused Icons on Your Desktop

There was a version of this circulating about a year ago, which I shared. But this one with the added pop-up message is better, I thought. I wonder whether Windows 10 will have that annoying pop-up. If there were icons on my desktop that I didn’t want there, I would delete or move them…Sheesh! [Read more...]

All Work and No Play

I’m not sure why it never occurred to me before to combine the two sayings about Jack: “All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy,” and “Jack of all trades, master of none.” But now that it has, it seemed meme-worthy. There is nothing dull about constantly learning new things. And to achieve mastery in a [Read More...]

Visiting the New Mormon Temple

Yesterday I went on a tour of the new Latter-Day Saints temple in Carmel, Indiana. It was my first ever visit to a Mormon temple, and it was quite fascinating. The architecture and artwork are all customized for the local context, and so it is not a coincidence that the top of the temple will remind [Read More...]

Recognizing Evil

This meme came to my attention on Facebook, and of course I had to share it, since it explores the intersection of Star Wars and Christianity. In Star Wars, the original plan was for lightsabers to all be the same color, but this was changed to make things more interesting. But the notion that someone’s stance [Read More...]

Horus Manure

I’m not sure how I missed it, but a few years ago, Catholic apologist Jon Sorensen came up with a very clever title for a post about alleged Jesus-Horus parallels: Horus Manure. Whatever you think of the post, that’s a pun that was too good not to share. More up to date, Gakusei Don (who [Read More...]

How to Apply the Greatest Commandments

If your appeal to prioritizing love for God over love for neighbor would have justified the priest in the parable of the Good Samaritan not stopping to help the robbery victim by the side of the road, then you are not applying what Jesus said were the greatest commandments in the way Jesus taught us [Read More...]
