Ten Commandments Die

That’s “die” as in the singular of “dice,” in case that wasn’t clear. I saw this ten-sided die at GenCon and took a photo. Not sure what you’d use it for – to pick which one to obey or disobey on a given day? There were some impressive companies at GenCon that make custom dice. [Read More...]

Who Wrote the Pentateuch?

Rachel Portnoy Bradley shared the following in a comment on Facebook, in response to my post about JEPD as four-part harmony: In my intro to OT class, we were required to do an “art project” — something creative about what we’d learned that quarter. A group of us got together and sang, “Who wrote the [Read More...]

Four Part Harmony

I came across the cartoon below, which seems to be neither funny nor accurate. I’m tempted to start a four-part a cappella vocal group called “The Moseses” in which we wear shirts that say “J,” “E,” “D,” and “P” and sing separate strands of the Pentateuchal narrative, just to show that it works just fine, [Read More...]

Better Commandments

Via John Loftus, I became aware of this list of ten commandments which Valerie Tarico offered as better than the more famous ten. What do you think of them? This above all shall ye take as my first command: Thou shalt treat living beings as they want to be treated. And the second commandment is [Read More...]

Caleb the Surfer

Today’s Non Sequitur. While Moses seems not to appreciate it, according to the Bible, Caleb was one of the few from the Exodus generation allowed to enter the promised land. And he lived to be at least 85. Maybe surfing had something to do with it? [Read more...]

Internet Ethics

Christian Brady shared the above Bizarro cartoon. There are a number of important topics it gets at. One is the simple fact that some think the Bible contains material that looks ahead to later science and technology, and yet the evidence does not support this. But another is that, for those of us who appreciate [Read More...]

Or is it the first Vulcan greeting with a commandment?

HT Jeff Carter. The Bible refers to Exodus 20:12 as the first commandment with a promise. Hence the title of my blog post.   [Read more...]

Moses Escapes the Mall

Although it might seem just like one more “Moses parts X” cartoon, today’s Non Sequitur comic actually gets at an interesting point, if you think about it. When people in modern industrialized nations talk about miracles, they often have in mind things like finding a parking spot, or finding one’s car after exiting (it may [Read More...]

Moses’ First Try

Yesterday’s Speed Bump gets at the fallibility of religious leaders, even famous ones. It reminds me of the Infancy Gospel of Thomas, which depicts Jesus as a child, filled with incredible power, but also human and thus immature and prone to use his powers capriciously. Whatever one thinks of its contents, it reflects an awareness [Read More...]
