Do All Creatures Go To Heaven?

Too often people accept concepts and ideas without ever taking the time to think through the implications. From Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal. HT Jerry Coyne. [Read more…]

How Dinosaurs Became Extinct

HT Nick Gotts, who got it from Sol Chrom. If there is a serious point, perhaps it is this: sometimes disaster strikes and there’s nothing you can do. But sometimes we inflict it upon ourselves. And worse still, when we divide and compete where cooperation would bring greater benefit, we set ourselves up to be [Read More…]

Cana Wedding Gift

The cartoon was shared by Allan Bevere, and seems to clearly be one of the Inherit the Mirth series. The request seems as legitimate as the request for help when wine has run out. But if we lived in a universe where such things happened, where would the cut-off point be, and would it not seem [Read More…]

You Won’t Believe The Cosmology

I shared the above Ziggy cartoon once before. But having happened across it again, I was struck by the subversive message of the cartoon. An alien that looks like an angel talks to Ziggy, a human, and then expresses amazement to another of his alien race at the cosmology humans have come up with. The reference is presumably to [Read More…]

iSlab

There are so many things that might be said about this cartoon. It makes the point that things have become commonplace in our time which would have seemed miraculous a few hundred years ago, never mind several thousand. And it asks us to imagine how we might respond to someone who came claiming revealed truths [Read More…]

This explains why they had all gathered on one side of the table… The picture came to my attention via Facebook. I can’t quite make out the signature. Does anyone know the original source? [Read more…]

Some Things You Just Don’t Do (According to Leviticus)

People in White Coats shared the above cartoon. It highlights a number of important things, including the fact that Leviticus mandates a great deal that Christians simply do not follow, or even try to follow, but also the character of a deity envisaged as “zapping” those who do not observe the laws.

The Pope, the God, and the GOP

The cartoon above by Mike Lukovich offers an amusing take on a famous painting. It nicely situates Big Oil as thinking of itself as God. One way of understanding it is that Big Oil as God is taking a bribe from the GOP (the Republican Party) to ignore the Pope. But that would represent a reversal of what [Read More…]

Jubilee Capitalism

PZ Myers shared the cartoon above. It struck me as reflecting on it that there is an interesting convergence between the radical egalitarian meritocracy talked about in the comic, and the vision of the Jubilee law in the Bible. The Jubilee law required that once a generation, land would revert to its original owner. The possibility of [Read More…]
