#TrumpBible

In case you missed it, the hashtag #TrumpBible has been trending on Twitter. Several questions about the Bible have been addressed to Donald Trump lately, and several answers he has given suggest that he is – how shall we put it – not very familiar with the contents of that famous collection of books.

Existential Comics: The Wrath of Kant

Unused Icons on Your Desktop

There was a version of this circulating about a year ago, which I shared. But this one with the added pop-up message is better, I thought. I wonder whether Windows 10 will have that annoying pop-up.

If The Princess Bride Were Remade Today

The image is from Jeff Carter. I try to make this blog an exception to the classic blunder mentioned in the updated movie dialogue. The image is funny because we can all relate to it.

Movie Trailer for the Papal Encyclical

The subject is climate change, and it there are high expectations for it. Does a trailer like this actually help raise expectations for [Read More...]

The Bible: Better With Godzilla?

Cracked shared a series of movie posters which have Godzilla added to them, and one of them was Noah. That got me thinking: which Biblical stories would be better with Godzilla in them? Share your suggestions/stories/images in the comments section.   [Read more...]

Egyptian God Solves the Euthyphro Dilemma

When Andy Snyder set about making this video explaining the Euthyphro dilemma, I’m pretty sure he didn’t expect an ancient Egyptian deity to appear from above to settle the matter. But that is precisely what happens in this short video. HT Madeleine Flannagan. [Read more...]
