Making the World a Better Place

This New Yorker cartoon came to my attention via Hemant Mehta on Facebook. It often strikes me how few people notice the horror and brutality of the flood story in Genesis. It depicts God acting like an immature human being, one who would happily wipe out everyone else in order to have a bit of peace and quiet, or [Read More…]

Ridiculously Complicated

Presumably there is a logical explanation for this, although it is one that is often overlooked by religious believers. The Biblical authors didn’t think of God as omnipotent.

In that episode, the stories about Noah and the ark have been completely forgotten. In this episode, the leader of the humans on [Read More…]


I shared a link on Facebook to Hemant Mehta’s blog post, which points out the irony of Ken Ham running an advertisement on a billboard in Times Square complaining that religious freedom is allegedly under attack. Steve Caruso responded by adapting Ham’s billboard to feature another supposedly unsinkable ship, and I’ve shared it above.   [Read more…]
