Ham vs. Nye, Moses, and Jesus

Tyler Franke has offered a comical cartoon version of a debate between Ken Ham, Bill Nye, Moses, and Jesus. Below is a sample. Click through for more. [Read more…]

Never Children

This Bizarro cartoon gets at one of the problems with the idea that Adam and Eve were created instantaneously as adults, or even as grown children. For that to have happened, the things that humans normally learn growing up would have had to have been pre-programmed into them. And that creates issues, perhaps especially for those [Read More…]

Who or What Makes Science Difficult?

I often like Non Sequitur comics very much. But this one is simply wrong. There certainly have been individuals who have stood in the way of scientists, motivated by their narrow religious beliefs. But to suggest that that is typical either historically or in the present day flies in the face of the evidence. There [Read More…]

Descartes and Spinoza as Roommates

The latest Existential Comics has a very entertaining exploration of what it might be like if Descartes and Spinoza were roommates… [Read more…]

Is This Gonna Be On The Test?

A nice bit of end-of-semester Bible humor, courtesy of Pictoral Theology. I imagine that whether you envisage Jesus as responding by saying “Yes” or “Study for life, not just the test,” says a lot about both your theology and your view of education… [Read more…]

Is This Going To Be On The Test?

This PHD Comic is really brilliant. That you should not address a professor as “Yo” is not something that is ever on a formal test. It is thus the kind of thing that is missed by the student who thinks that the point of education is to study for the tests. Your future employers will more likely [Read More…]

Where You Sit In Class

From PHD Comics. I think this is almost certainly true in large classrooms like that depicted. In smaller classrooms it still has the tendency to be this way, but not always. Perhaps students have figured out that, in a smaller non-tiered classroom, the professor’s eye is often above the front row students? This semester I [Read More…]

Independent Variables

Pliny the In Between has illustrated what most mythicists seem unable to grasp. Accepting the existence of a historical Jesus is not about accepting a miracle working human, much less a deity. But in another sense, mythicism is much worse than mainstream historical criticism for those whose aim is to disprove the existence of deities. [Read More…]

Dungeons and Dragons and Philosophy: The Gods a Dragon has Met

Existential Comics has once again depicted philosophers playing Dungeons and Dragons. It was the dragon’s quip about the gods he’s met that made me decide it was worth sharing here…   [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…]
