If Math Were Debated Like Religion

Not everyone debates religion in the way the Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal cartoon below depicts. And it is problematic when religion tries to be like arithmetic. And yet I wonder how much it is the desire to offer proofs in a manner that only math can, that leads to debates about religion taking the form [Read More...]

It’s All Here in the Bible

I wish I’d come across this political cartoon by Kevin Moore about Obama as the antichrist when it was made in 2008. But better late than never, and even if it is not as politically timely now, its point about Biblical interpretation remains as relevant as ever. [Read more...]
