Swing By and Pick Up the Llamas

Yesterday’s Bizarro comic highlighted the absurdity of the Noah’s ark story when taken literally. One has to either have the Earth so completely changed and reshaped that it would involve a greater cataclysm than anything the Bible explicitly states or the geological record bears witness to, or one has to imagine other people in other [Read More…]

The Real Gavin Smythe

The above cartoon from Tom the Dancing Bug has been making the rounds. I thought it was worth sharing anyway for Evolution Sunday, as it pokes fun at the person who does not work in science but sits at home posting their confident “insights” on social media, certain that they see things that the world’s [Read More…]

Side Effects of Your Theology

The above cartoon by David Hayward got me thinking about how theology is like a drug. Some drugs alter your state of mind. Some are designed primarily to do that. Others do that as a side effect, and it is worth tolerating that because of some other benefit that comes from taking the medication in [Read More…]

Same Scripture Different Response

David Hayward shared the above cartoon, which makes the point that people with the same sacred texts apply them in very different ways. And so it can be argued that what people do with a sacred text is much more interest and telling than what the text itself says. A text which teaches love will not [Read More…]

Whatshisname

I really liked yesterday’s Speed Bump cartoon, which may just be poking fun at the fallibility of human memory, and our penchant to forget names, even when we should remember them. But I wonder whether it reflects an awareness of the tendency of people in our time to forget that, in the Bible, God was said to have [Read More…]

Making the World a Better Place

This New Yorker cartoon came to my attention via Hemant Mehta on Facebook. It often strikes me how few people notice the horror and brutality of the flood story in Genesis. It depicts God acting like an immature human being, one who would happily wipe out everyone else in order to have a bit of peace and quiet, or [Read More…]

An Epiphany Present

From Cartoon Movement. That’s the trouble with the magi delivering their gifts, according to Matthew, when Jesus would have been old enough to talk… For those who want something more serious on the occasion of Epiphany, I will point out that not only is Jesus a toddler in the story in Matthew, but the family [Read More…]

Alien Wisdom and the Meaning of Life

This Existential Comics gets at one of the biggest challenges that encounter with extraterrestrials could offer to terrestrial faiths. Some have presumed that either the presence of belief in incarnations of God on their world would be a biggie, at least for Christians. Others have presumed the opposite, the apparent lack of such revelations specific [Read More…]
