Take It With A Grain Of Salt

The Salis Bible. HT Hemant Mehta. And Allan Bevere shared a cartoon illustrating the limits of literalism Рand that one possible interpretation is not necessarily the right one: [Read more...]

Church of Death

David Hayward posted this cartoon: I find it all the more interesting because it potentially highlights two possible ways of thinking about and approaching church, and Christianity. On the one hand, there is an approach that uses appealing things to lure people into a trap that ultimately results in their spiritual death, as they join [Read More...]

Non-Human Theology

The Peanuts cartoon in yesterday’s paper featured Lucy expressing the view that “the theology is the same” for dogs as it is for humans. I’m less interested in the dog-related question at the moment as I am in other non-humans. Is theology the same for extraterrestrial sentient beings? For artificially intelligent machines? These are the [Read More...]

Room for Comments

But that simply isn’t true, and it has never been true historically. Even in the texts in which we find the ten commandments embedded (in a variety of [Read More...]

We actually focused on machines becoming self aware in my religion and science fiction class yesterday, the readings being “Gus” by Jack McDevitt and “Good News from the Vatican” by Robert Silverberg. For next time, they are reading “Reason” by [Read More...]

Cross and Question Mark

David Hayward shared this cartoon yesterday: I am sure that there are some who will find it offensive. But the cross has not always been a public symbol for Christianity, and the removal of a physical symbol doesn’t necessarily indicate the removal of that which is symbolized. But on the other hand, I don’t think [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...]
