A Gastly Encounter

Apparently the campus of Butler University is simply teeming with Pokemon. There are four gyms, and Pokemon are even to be found roaming the halls of the buildings. Someone spotted one today right above my head…   [Read more…]

Introducing Religion Prof

I announced earlier that my blog would be undergoing a rebranding, and said that the name would not surprise anyone. ReligionProf has long been my Twitter handle, my nickname on Reddit, as well as being in use in other places – including Hearthstone! And so as I considered how my blog has become so much [Read More…]

Matrix Regeneration

The Matrix movies came out a long time ago – the original film was released in 1999! And so the allusion to them in the title of this blog is seeming increasingly dated. And so I’ve decided that it is probably time to rename this blog – even though rumor has it that The Matrix 4 [Read More…]

This Isn’t What We Meant When We Said “Pence Must Go”

A friend posted this as her status update on Facebook, and it seemed to me precisely the sort of thing that might go viral, and so I asked permission to share it. For those who aren’t aware, there have been “Pence Must Go” signs up all over Indianapolis. And so the comment on Facebook is [Read More…]

A friend and former colleague posted the meme above, and I found it funny, but also disturbing. “Put down your phone and learn something” could only be said by someone my age or older. It posits a false dichotomy, living as we do in a time when one can much more easily pick up one’s [Read More…]

Catchers of Men

What do you think of this updating of the words of Jesus? As one commenter said on Facebook (on the Catholic Memes page where I came across this), “I choose you, Peter-chu!”   [Read more…]

Would a God Play God?

I’ve been watching Stargate SG-1 from the beginning, and decided not to blog about every episode (the way I still need to finish doing with Doctor Who). But I do plan to write occasional blog posts on interesting religious themes in the show. And one moment that really struck me was in the episode “Abyss” from [Read More…]
