Our Funny Little Satanist Friends Made a Statue!

From The Devil Rides Out (Hammer Films, 1968)

Aw, innit cute!? Didn’t I see this in Hammer’s The Devil Rides Out? Rad. Good movie. I think I’ll base my entire life, being, and belief system upon it. The overgrown teenagers of the Satanic Temple in New York have raised $30,000 to bronze this turd and plop it in front of the Oklahoma State [Read More...]

Egypt 3D-Prints an Exact Replica of Tut’s Tomb

One of the great threats to archaeological treasures is popularity. The more popular something is, the more tourists it gets. The more tourists, the faster it decays. Vibration, traffic, moisture, light, and human respiration all can degrade certain ancient artifacts. The tomb and treasures of King Tutankhamen are quite possibly the most famous treasures of [Read More...]

Kareem Abdul-Jabbar on Moral Outrage

I am the least sporty person you’ll ever meet. I’ve never watched an entire football, hockey, soccer, or major league baseball game, ever. I took the kids to minor league games for the Camden Riversharks a couple times, and it was fun … ish. (I have, however, attended 5 professional golf tournaments and used to [Read More...]

Watch Some C.S. Lewis Doodles

doodle

  C.S. Lewis Doodle is almost completely self-explanatory: it’s a guy illustrating excerpts from the works of C.S. Lewis with doodles, and it’s pretty neat. The art is credited to Playmobible.com and the reading is by Ralph Cosham, who some might recognize from Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion. [Read more...]

How Badly Does Vox Explain Baptism in 130 Words?

Pretty badly. For those who don’t know, Vox is a website that attempts to “explain” the news in tiny little bits of compressed pseudo-information. When Sarah Palin made a spectacularly offensive comment about using water-boarding to baptize terrorists, the non-theists at Vox put on their ‘splaining caps and broke it down for us thusly. Let’s go [Read More...]

Another Nail in the Coffin of the “Jesus’s Wife” Hoax

Gospel of John fragment from same group as the Gospel of Jesus's Wife.

Evidence indicating that Karen King’s so-called “Gospel of Jesus’s Wife” (GJW) is a modern forgery just keeps piling up. Most recently, we learned that the man listed as the source for the document (prior to the anonymous donor/forger) almost certainly never owned it. This came on top of a mountain of other evidence suggesting modern [Read More...]

My Favorite John XXIII Quip

2w2EPla

Asked how many people worked at the Vatican, St. John replied, “About half of them.” Anyone who has worked for the Church knows how true this is. Our motto should be “employing the unemployable.” (And, yes, I’ll include myself among that group.) Catholic News Service has a few Pope John jokes I hadn’t heard before. [Read More...]
