Viva La Library with Arabic Subtitles!

So, the information literacy song I made,  “Viva La Library,” has been subtitled with Arabic subtitles by the Media & Information Literacy Programme in Qatar. My spoken Arabic is minimal and my reading ability weaker still. And so thoughts on the translation would be appreciated from readers who are proficient in Arabic! Below is the original without the subtitles, [Read More...]

Parody of Reza Aslan Fox News Interview

HT Homebrewed Christianity. I still think Timothy Michael Law’s parody was funnier.   [Read more...]

An Infographic about Infographics

I made the infographic above in response to a discussion of an infographic I recently shared, which led to a discussion of the problem of infographics with dubious information. I'm particularly grateful to commenter Cosmo Fish for a comment with an amusing made-up statistic that helped inspire this!   [Read more...]

Answers in Genesis according to the Uncyclopedia

Today I had my attention drawn to the “Answers in Genesis” entry on the Uncyclopedia. It begins as follows: Answers in Genesis is a satirical Christian ministry that parodies the genuine Pastafarian ministry Answers in the Gospel of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. It aims to portray Christians as mouth breathing, arm swinging retards who sit on their high horse [Read More...]

Coffee with Doctor Zaius

Daniel Dunlap pointed out to me the existence of a parody of the “Coffee with Jesus” cartoons on Facebook: Coffee with Dr. Zaius. Here are a couple of examples: Most of the rest are dated political commentary. But I thought it was an interesting parody of the popular and very simply illustrated comic strip. Who [Read More...]

Objective Ministries

Objective Ministries is clearly a parody site. But it is just close enough to what some extreme Christian groups claim and try to accomplish, that you have moments of doubt. I had come across it before, but having found my way there again yesterday, I thought I’d share the site with you. My favorite elements [Read More...]

Mythicism, Mimesis, and Pooh Studies

I previously suggested that Thomas Brodie’s work on the composition of the Gospels is problematic because it has no controls, and it is easy to imagine parallels are present where none are likely to have been intended by the author or perceived by ancient readers/hearers of the work. His claim that the entirety of the [Read More...]

Let There Be

As part of the ongoing attempt to contribute more amusing musical offerings related to religion, and because we seem to have a “Music Mondays” custom going, I’ve re-recorded the parody version of “Let It Be,” with lyrics inspired by Genesis 1, that I shared once before. I think it turned out much better this time. [Read More...]

An Evolutionary Creationist’s Declaration of Independence

This seems particularly fitting for the occasion of 4th of July and an ongoing interest of this blog (it is authored by Mike Beidler, and first appeared on the blog Rethinking the αlpha and Ωmega: An Evolutionary Creationist’s Declaration of Independence (Apologies to Mr. Jefferson) In the BODY OF CHRIST, February 26, 2010.

Mennonites, Mormons, and Moonies

Having provided enough amusing information literacy song videos, my colleague Chad Bauman and I are moving into a new genre: amusing song videos about religion. The above is the first in the genre, “Mennonites, Mormons, and Moonies,” with lyrics by Chad Bauman, and performed in four-part harmony by Chad Bauman, Chad Bauman, Chad Bauman, and [Read More...]

The Information Literacy Song Trilogy

Here are the three songs that I and my colleague Chad Bauman created and performed recently, trying to convey some key points about information literacy: Which is your favorite? I’m thinking the market for humorous songs about information literacy is now saturated. And so what should be next? How about funny songs related to the [Read More...]
