Recyclable Souls

HT Steve Caruso on Facebook. While our metaphysical views must inevitably differ from those of bygone eras, the nature of identity, personhood, and self continue to fascinate. Feel free to have a serious discussion, if you are so inclined, taking this non-serious cartoon as a starting point. Do you think your soul/self is in any [Read More...]

Does Conflict Drive Evolution?

Today's Bizarro comic is funny. But having spent some time today talking with someone who genuinely seemed to believe that biological evolution meant a fish suddenly sprouting legs or even turning into a human being, it seems necessary to address the popular misunderstanding that could be reinforced by the cartoon. Many of us have wished [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.

There's been an ongoing discussion on the theme “Are Mormons Christians?” at [Read More...]

Safer than with a Volcano?

Today’s Bizarro comic addresses an interesting theological point. As human beings have found themselves seemingly under assault from forces of nature – volcanoes, earthquakes, floods, storms, etc. – they have sought ways to appease those forces. The idea that they might act mindlessly, that there might be no justice or injustice involved in the destruction [Read More...]

Keeping an Anthropomorphic God Busy

Jerry Coyne recently shared this Bizarro comic: I think the cartoon illustrates nicely some of the problems involved in thinking about God in such anthropomorphic terms. Coyne adds the comment: The whole nature of God for these people (and for many, many Americans) is that of a personal God, something with the characteristics of a [Read More...]
