In this week’s Jesus and Mo, the barmaid asks those who limn Uncaused Cause arguments—whether those arguments are cosmological or invoke A Cause that Exists of Absolute Necessity—the fatal question: I’m chuffed that the artist said this at the bottom of the strip: “Tip of the hat to WEIT.” And I’ll insist again: there is no way […]

The latest Jesus and Mo cartoon, “Sore2”, isn’t for once a critique of religious doctrine, but rather a graphic joke, similar to the old Jesus joke: Jesus walks into a motel and throws three nails on the counter and says to the manager “Can you put me up for the night?”
Once again Jesus and Mo manage to encapsulate hypocrisy—in this case the UN’s appointing a Saudi diplomat as head of a human right council—in just four brief panels. This one stings! The author’s addendum to the strip: “… and statutory tea-breaks for floggers.”
Today’s Jesus and Mo strip, called “Gulf,” includes the subtitle “Because that’s problematic.” If you want to see the Qur’an with its for various bits labeled as good and bad (but mostly the latter) head over to the “Skeptic’s Annotated Quran” page, which has verses labeled for content with these symbols:
In the new Jesus and Mo strip, the artist reveals that “Mo has big news!”. The strip’s title is “Stir,” and the explanation is “It’s the best method He could come up with at the time.” I have to say that I don’t fully get this one. But in many things I’m clueless, so perhaps […]
The latest Jesus and Mo strip, called “Wow,” takes up the issue of whether religion might gain protection against ‘ableism’ were it to be classified as a mental illness (note Mo’s own ableism in the last panel): I’ve written recently on the controversy about whether religion should be seen as a mental illness, and decided tentatively that […]
Faith versus Fact talks a bit about the topic that the Jesus and Mo author covers in four panels in today’s strip: Here are some gaps that theologians still use: The origin of life The mechanism of consciousness “Fining tuning” of the laws of physics Why the laws of physics are as they are The […]
Today’s Jesus ‘n’ Mo clearly reveals that Mo is a Sunni Muslim. Remember that one of the main distinctions between Sunnis and Shiites is that the former accepted Muhammad’s father-in-law as the rightful head of the faith after the Prophet’s death, while the latter took Ali, Muhammad’s cousin and son-in-law as the Caliph. On such differences rests the bloodshed […]
This weeks Jesus and Mo strip raises the burning question: Has the Templeton Foundation paid off Moses?
The latest Jesus and Mo strip, “Glad,” is an essay on both Islamic offense and the Charlie Hebdo-critics who cry “Islamophobia.” More on Charlie Hebdo later today.
