Where We’re Spending August

Where We’re Spending August June 21, 2014

Another funny New Yorker cartoon. But it shows the problems with imaginging an afterlife. Do problems like living far from one's inlaws go away? If so, that raises theological issues of its own.

See also Jerry Coyne's post, which makes some important points about the problems of imaginging God as like a vertibrate, as humans are, but incorporeal. He somehow seems unaware that there are theologians who have made the same points and continue to do so.
