Fairie’s Aire and Death Waltz

This bit of musical humor came my way via Facebook. The text instructions are hilarious and deserve to be read, even though just looking at the notes will crack you up (literally and/or metaphorically) if you are a musician.   [Read more...]

A Better Way to be a Biblical Literalist

If you're determined to be a Biblical literalist, or at least to pretend to be one (since no one is really one), you don't have to deny evolution. Indeed, there is a better option, that accepts that evolution occurred and says that God miraculously does evolution better than natural causes could! Since there is no [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...]

Your Opportunity to Write Scripture

For Pastafarian readers (and presumably also the “touched by his noodly appendage but not religious”) this may be of interest. An official call has been issued for the composition of scriptures about Flying Spaghetti Monster, for the second edition of The Loose Canon. Click through to the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster blog for [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...]

Drive Carefully!

Thanks to Hemant Mehta for reminding us that it is not only Easter tomorrow, but also “Jesus, Take The Wheel” Day. I am pretty sure no one will be observing the occasion. But be careful out there, just in case.   [Read more...]

Alincolnism

Scott Bailey drew my attention to a wonderful parody page on Facebook, taking a mythicist approach to Abraham Lincoln. Here’s one example of what you’ll find there: I also like the parody book cover, Lincoln is Not Great: How Belief in Abraham Lincoln Poisons Everything.  :-) [Read more...]

The King James Version: Better Than The Originals?

Stuff Fundies Like shared the above image. At first I thought it must be satire. But apparently not…   [Read more...]
