Jesus’ (Facebook) Friends

Three cartoons on this theme by Tim “Spike” Davis. One of the things that Christians think about during this season is Jesus' teaching about loving our enemies, and how he put it into practice to the last. Can I not forgive my Facebook friends' posts that seem hateful to me, and do so not just [Read More…]

Saint Schrödinger

This cartoon by Kevin Frank came to my attention via Facebook. It brings together Easter and quantum science. There is a sense in which the thought experiment is an interesting one. Would you look inside the tomb and see either that Jesus’ body is still there or that it is gone? Or would you prefer to [Read More…]

But appealing to Paul’s letters, or other early Christian writings, which happen to have ended up [Read More…]

Just Free Them With Your Magic

The above cartoon appeared in a 3quarksdaily post that is part 1 of a series called “Becoming Moses.” I thought it was interesting because it raises important questions about the concept of God. Ideas about gods seem to clearly emerge out of observation of forces of nature, which were presumed to themselves be, or to be [Read More…]
