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. And so it is also sad. Serious, profound, deep discussion has taken place on the internet, and continues to do so. We may [Read More…]

It Is Dangerous To Deny Q

  For the purists, the t-shirt really should say this: (Q is better when you read it in the original Klingon). And for those few readers who may not know Klingon at all, the t-shirt says: “Mark Goodacre says there is no Q. We will engage him in battle in November!” Hopefully readers of this blog [Read More…]

As a New Testament scholar who has blogged about Rachel Dolezal, racism, and the appearance of Jesus, I found this amusing – not least because the father who spills the beans is not Joseph, from whom Jesus would have inherited half of his Middle Eastern characteristics, but God.

Bad Hebrew = Free Advertising

There is a blog dedicated to bad Hebrew tattoos. I had apparently neglected it for a long time, because in a post from quite some time ago, they shared this gem: The person apparently wanted to profess their love for someone, and so decided to do so in Hebrew using Babylon translation software.

The Goal of Human Evolution

Scientists, working within the framework of scientific methods, cannot see that the universe, or processes within it like biological evolution, have a goal or purpose.
