How Grown-Ups Communicate

I’m glad I saw this PHD Comic. This is a real issue. And while professors sometimes lag behind technologically, that isn’t what is going on here. Texting is simply not conducive to effective communication in the professional world. Students may think it is “old school” but when they themselves are in an old school, they need [Read More...]

The Concept of Heaven

I am pretty skeptical of ideas of an afterlife. So is one of the characters in this SMBC comic. But perhaps we simply aren’t using our imagination sufficiently. Is there a depiction of the afterlife that you have encountered that seems to you particularly problematic? Is there not one that you can imagine that would be [Read More...]

Where Can I Find Killing Jesus?

OK, so I found this cartoon funny, even before I learned that it was based on a real life occurrence, which I think makes it even funnier.

Makes the Trip Seem Quicker

This cartoon from the New Yorker popped up on Facebook as I am sitting in Baltimore airport, waiting for my flight back to Indianapolis. And so it seemed timely as well as funny. But it is interesting to reflect on which religious and non-religious activities are just versions of the same thing, done for comparable [Read More...]

Romans and a Miracle-Worker

The question raised in this People in White Coats cartoon is an interesting one. There are stories of martyrdoms of miracle-workers, and not just from early Christian sources. But do those stories make any sense if the individual in question actually performed the kinds of miracles they are supposed to have? We can understand why [Read More...]
