Saturday: Hili dialogue

Good morning; the weekend is here, albeit the end of a very tough week for Britain. It’s Saturday, June 25 in the U.S. where it’s also National Catfish Day! Readers who nom catfish today should weigh in below. On this day in history the Battle of Little Bighorn took place (1876), and Stravinsky’s The Firebird was […]

Theistic evolution

Here’s a cartoon by reader Pliny the in Between inspired by yesterday’s post on theistic evolution. It’s called “Seems like a lot of work.” And indeed it is: God not only has to watch the sparrows fall, but make sure that every nucleotide in every individual either doesn’t mutate (after all, He’s “sustaining creation”) or […]

Burka Avenger!

This is a pretty cool cartoon with an admirable goal: to advance the education of women in Pakistan, a country where there’s considerable opposition to that goal. Reader Geoffrey sent me this link and a note (indented below), and I watched one episode of the cartoon. That video is below, and I like it. (You can find other […]

Two new episodes of Simon’s Cat

I have a stack of stuff that I could write about today, but for once I don’t feel like writing about anything. It’s a big mess out there, there’s precious little any of us can do to fix things, or so I think, and it’s dispiriting. Politicians are making big noises about how we will […]

Cartoons and cars

There are a few miscellaneous items that I didn’t know where to put.  First, readers George, jsp, and many others (first one below) sent cartoons: Non Sequitur by Wiley Miller: From Facebook (I’m wondering whether this will satisfy Diana MacPherson, or whether she’d go into the bathroom on the right and reverse the toilet roll): […]

Physics explains it all

Reader Pliny the In Between has a new cartoon, “Time Dilation,” on his/her site Evolving Perspectives (click to enlarge): Making these cartoons is no easy job; in another new post, Pliny explains the work behind creating the characters and making the panels. It’s far more complicated and laborious than you’d imagine!

Hitchens’s only conversion

From Pictoral Theology, reader Pliny the in Between comments on Christopher Hitchens’s “conversion”. The cartoon’s title is “Yes he converted—he stopped phosphorylating ADP.” Click to enlarge:  

The Argument from Ponies

In a cartoon called “The Tao of Tommy: Budding Apologist Edition“, Reader Pliny the in Between presents a self-aggrandizing version of the familiar (and flawed) Ontological Argument: I think that the kid, though, is really “Billy,” a budding William Lane Craig. However, there’s an unstated premise in the argument: “my happiness must necessarily be instantiated in this […]

Jesus ‘n’ Mo ‘n’ lagniappe (and a digression)

Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “sitcom,” came with this note from the author: Is Mo pretending to be stupid? I have no idea. This one was inspired by British MP Rupa Huq’s complaint about a popular sitcom called Citizen Khan. The link goes to an Express & Star piece on the show, and Rupa Huq […]

Is God a question or an answer?

Apparently inspired by my post about the claim that God is not an answer, but a question, reader Pliny the in Between produced this cartoon on Evolving Perspectives. Doesn’t that theologian look familiar?
