Unicorn Museum

There is a parody site for a “Unicorn Museum” which includes images such as those above and below. One thing that makes this parody particularly useful is that it is liable to be met with objections that it is unfair ridicule. But why is taking fire breathing dragons or the ark as museum-worthy less ridiculous [Read More…]

Ken Ham’s Dog Slide

Oops. This is the disadvantage for charlatans in the technological era. Someone can stop the video and zoom in, and track down the source of the image you used. And in this case, Ken Ham’s slide about dogs evolving after coming off the ark actually shows dogs diverging from 400,000 years ago. [Read more…]

Creation and Evolution: The True Stories

I had barely posted on the fact that the story of Noah's ark makes at least slightly more sense when one includes hyper-fast evolution, when the blog The Layman's Answer to Everything posted about the story of Noah's ark being a parable of evolution.

Use the Force, Isaiah!

I liked this Biblical parody of the well known meme-image that aims to infuriate nerds. It works just as well. If you are a Biblical scholar, or just someone who knows the Bible well, did it make your head explode? From Cake or Death   [Read more…]

Temple of Science Fiction

GakuseiDon left a comment on a recent post pointing out that there is a Buddhist temple, Wat Rong Khun, which includes depictions of characters and scenes from science fiction in its artwork. Here’s an example: Did you spot Neo? Click through for more images from the temple’s artwork and architecture! Also at the intersection of religion [Read More…]
