Non Sequitur on creationism and offended religionists

Today’s Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller features creationism and a kid who must be getting advice from the Discovery Institute:   h/t: Linda Grilli

Devil Cat and Surgeon’s Assistant Cat

What are the chances? Two good cat cartoons today, both spotted by alert readers. Reader Howard sent me the latest Dilbert strip, by Scott Adams, with the note: Todays Dilbert… which combines Cats, Science, Money and Religion.  I thought you’d like it The research, as far as I know, is correct. But I just wonder if […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo, Calvin ‘n’ Hobbes, and Bonnie ‘n’ Clyde

This morning we have a fortuitous conjunction of three pairs of individuals—fortuitous because Albatross 2.0 will be done today and I will have little time to post here. Do not expect Deep Thoughts (which, according to philosophers and theologians, I don’t have anyway). First the latest Jesus and Mo, relevant to our discussion of theology […]

xkcd on the Colbert Report

by Greg Mayer The other day Jerry announced the “trippy” launch of Randall Munroe’s new book What If, based on one of our favorite comics, xkcd. Last night he was interviewed by Stephen Colbert on the Colbert Report (see video here). He unfortunately seemed very nervous and shy, and I think Colbert bungled the questioning […]

Two cartoons for Tuesday

A different take on evolution vs. religion, from Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller:   And, out of the mouths of swine. . .From The Atheist Pig, a great webcomic that has gone defunct, as the artist appears to have lost interest. The last panel reminds me of the “one god less” trope of Dawkins and others. h/t: Linda […]

Ten cats but one less person

The “Ten Cats” comic strip  written by Graham Harrop is well worth following, for it describes the adventures of Annie and ten cats who all live in a warehouse.  Apparently Linda, one of the strip’s regular commenters, passed away, and Harrop provided a touching tribute: p.s. Please don’t tell me that it’s one “fewer” person; Pinker dispels a lot of the “less/fewer” […]

Archie Andrews died today—after 73 years in the comics

I think the Archie comics are a purely American phenomenon, but they’ve been around forever—certainly when I was a kid in the Pleistocene. And I read it faithfully, as, I suspect did most of our older readers here. You would remember Archie, Jughead, Riverdale High, and the two attractive women, Veronica and Betty, between which one […]

Doonesbury on PuffHo

I haven’t been following Doonesbury, but I see the error of my ways, for last night, in a comment, reader bric posted a link to today’s strip from The Washington Post.  It perfectly sums up PuffHo’s “journalism”: Maybe I should put “sideboob” in the title of my science posts! I had no idea that ex-reporter Rick Redfern […]

Non Sequitur on weather and accommodationism

Today’s Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller uses the weather to show  precisely why science and faith are incompatible: I don’t know how he gets away with it! h/t: Linda Grilli

xkcd raises the bar for comics

Today’s xkcd raises the bar for what is already a superb “comic” (or should I call it graphic art?). I’ve put a screenshot below, but you really need to go to the original site, for the words flash lighter or darker at the frequency with which the event they depict takes place. Check out the […]
