A Textbook Case of Addiction

Or should that be “a case of textbook addiction”? From the webcomic series Cyanide and Happiness.   [Read more...]

Not Anti-Science

This cartoon from today’s New Yorker puts a positive spin on opposition to mainstream science, one which might actually be just as honest, when we consider what people want to substitute in the place of scientific conclusions. It is either myth in the classic sense of pre-scientific cosmology, or it is myth in the sense of [Read More...]

Pure Evil

Via Yuriy Stasyuk on Facebook. This is a clear violation of the Golden Rule. Treat the religions of others the way you want your own to be treated. Or better still, treat your own religious views with the honesty and moral sensibility that you use in relation to the religious claims and views of others. [Read more...]

Vote for Donuts

This Pearls Before Swine comic offers a different perspective on creationism and evolution. Often people debate big picture worldview questions, and don’t realize that neither appeals, because both seem irrelevant to real life and its daily concerns. Like donuts. [Read more...]

Pareidolatry

A cute cartoon from People in White Coats. Is this blasphemy, or a miracle – or can it be both? While I probably would have shared it just for the punny title (mashing together pareidolia and idolatry), there is a serious point worth reflecting on – and not just about our human penchant to see patterns [Read More...]

The Cosmos as Group Project

The suggestion that the cosmos might have multiple creators, and/or one or more bungling ones, is voiced in David Hume’s Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion. This cartoon from SMBC updates the image to one that is particularly appropriate for the end of the semester. Do click through and push the red button for the final punchline. And [Read More...]

Newsworthy

A cartoon by Mike Luckovich. It seems to me absolutely inappropriate for people who have done nothing at all to try to change a status quo resulting from years of slavery, segregation, and discrimination (much less anything committed on principle to non-violent means), to criticize others when frustration with the status quo bursts forth in [Read More...]

More To Life

This New Yorker cartoon made me laugh, but it makes a serious point. There is more to life than answering questions, whether the mysteries be scientific, theological, political, or of any other sort. [Read more...]

Jesus as a Teen

The cartoon is from Inherit the Mirth. It connects nicely to a discussion I had in my “Heresy” class recently. If Jesus was not rebellious in his teen years, if he did not learn to be obedient to his parents the way everyone else does, then is there any meaningful sense in which he was [Read More...]
