Do Young-Earth Creationists Have a Sense of Humor?

A friend shared this cartoon from the Answers in Genesis web site on Facebook: On the one hand, I don’t find the notion of waiting two millennia to pee funny. On the other hand, I find the idea of Noah’s flood being before the ice age hilarious – but I suspect that the maker of [Read More...]

Jim Linville’s Zombie Blog Rises from the Grave

If Jim Linville’s blog had been dead for a mere three days, we might say it was resurrected, or that it had only in fact been mostly dead. But his blog was dead. It was nailed to the biblioblogosphere. It was an ex-blog. But now it’s back, and that can only mean one thing… It’s [Read More...]

Star Wars as Religion

Having posted yesterday about Doctor Who as religion, I was struck when today Hemant Mehta shared this video, “Darth Vader is My Savior”: It does actually make a good point towards the end, as well as being amusing, and so it’s worth watching. And given the bit of anti-Obama religious propaganda I shared earlier today, [Read More...]

Jesus – Married too Soon?

Clergy Family Confidential has a list of ten reasons why one would not want to be Jesus’ wife. And then they came up with another ten.

The Most Interesting Gospel about Jesus’ Wife in the World?

Steve Douglas kindly made and shared this image: The words are something I said in my previous blog post, in response to Francis Watson’s claim that various phrases show dependence on other Gospels. There are a great many phrases one will encounter in a language which will only seem derivative of a specific other text [Read More...]

Jesus said, “My wife…” WHAT? How would you fill in the blank?

As readers already know, a small fragment in Coptic that has been making headlines because it includes the words “Jesus said, ‘My wife…’” and then is cut off there. I suggested in my last post, but thought it might be worth separating out in a post of its own, that it would be interesting (and perhaps [Read More...]

Christ of Jerusalem Lost the Election

The New York Times has an article today about the tendency of candidates in Brazil to adopt creative and at times outlandish pseudonyms. From that article I learned that “Christ of Jerusalem” lost an election back in 2008, while Batman and a couple of James Bonds are currently on various ballots. The appearance of a “Christ” [Read More...]
