The Creationist Vision of Paradise is Like Living Forever on a Crowded Tokyo Subway

I’m grateful to Michael Heiser for highlighting the ridiculousness of a typical creationist claim. According to the Bible, the command to “be fruitful and multiply” was there prior to the Fall.

Ouuuuuch

Another religion and sci-fi art mash-up gem from Jeff Carter. He added the following text at the bottom: And after eight days again his disciples were within, and E.T. was with them; then came Jesus, the doors being shut, and stood in the midst, and said Peace be unto you. Then saith he to E.T., Reach hither [Read More...]
