Friday afternoon evolution cartoon

Someone should make a book out of these “fish evolving out of the water” cartoons. There must be hundreds of them by now (add a link to your favorite below). This one is by Dan Piraro from Bizarro!

Texas textbooks attempt to hide the history of slavery, but are exposed in Doonesbury

This report from the Washington Post is from July 5, so it’s not new, but I wasn’t aware of the issue until I saw yesterday’s Doonesbury cartoon by Garry Trudeau (below). The words in Trudeau’s strip are taken directly from new Texas school standards that will begin this fall. Most of us know that Texas is constantly […]

The ecology of Heaven

Here’s a scientifically based cartoon from SMBC about the relationship between ecology and immortality in Heaven. (One might call it “ecological theology.”) Sadly, the r versus k distinction has lost momentum over the years, as they are two ends of a continuum, and there are alternative as well as mixed reproductive strategies for single species.

Jesus & Mo: Your weekly dose of blasphemy

The Outsider Test for the Right Faith

Here’s today’s Pardon My Planet by Vic Lee, which combines the ideas of John Loftus and Alvin Plantinga (if you understand that, explain below!): h/t: Ken E.

Wiley Miller on religion

There’s no other way to interpret today’s Non Sequitur cartoon except as the incitement of xenophobia, hatred, and violence by religion. I don’t know how Wiley Miller gets away with this stuff! h/t: Linda Calhoun

Tuesday cartoon

This one, sent by reader Paul, is by Hillary B. Price, one of her Rhymes with Orange strips. Many of you will recognize the problem.

The old, politically incorrect Trudeau

. . . before he realized it was wrong to “punch down”: h/t: Hempenstein
