    Now that it’s been moved, the Church should take the opportunity to carbon-date the “crown of thorns”. I think they’ll find it to date from around the time it was obtained. Faking a holy relic would have been a profitable activity for a tradesman who could act religiously humble.

    Miraculous indeed! Another excellent strip that reminded me of a spoof story Viz a few years ago in a similar vein entitled Hallelujah! It’s a miracle! Unfortunately I’m unable to post the link here.

    Found it hilarious that orange Hitler thought it a great idea to extinguish the flames with flown in water tanks, as if it were a forest fire, heedless of the structural damage that would cause.
    Should we thank god that he’s not the president of France?

  4. WCorvi says:

    I’ve read stories that go something like this – daughter is in a car accident, doctors work for 16 hours, and she lives. The parents never thank the doctors or ambulance drivers, they thank god.

    Congratulations, Author! You’re really struggling to think of an idea for this week’s strip, and then along comes the Notre Dame fire! I hope you have thanked God for providing you with such an open goal.

    I reckon it was started when a huge stash of child pornography was inadvertantly set alight…

    @Someone: I happen to be a U.S. citizen.


    If you’re fortunate enough not to have the manchurian cantaloupe as your chief executive, and if you’re so inclined, then expressing gratitude to the invisible friend of your choice would be appropriate.

    Laripu, I think that it goes something like this, carbon dating puts the age at 1200 AD +\- 150 years, “that’s Gods way of testing your belief,” true believers will accept that they a genuine no matter what carbon dating says. Of course if it comes up as 50 AD +\- 50 years science is wonderful and correct.

    I’ve no doubt the “Crown of Thorns” is a Medieval forgery. My favorite fact about the Shroud of Turin is that the first document which discusses it is a letter from a bishop to the Inquisition saying it’s a forgery and the authorities know who the forger is.

  10. Jon Marx says:

    @Son of Glenner – good point. Does Author have an alibi for Monday evening…?

  11. Troubleshooter says:

    Yahweh gets the credit.
    Humans get the blame.

    So what else is new?

  12. M27Holts says:

    Probably started by a stray ciggie…People with no regard to their health are as likely to burn a twelfth century cathedral down as cause forest fires which devastate whole eco systems…

  13. Edward Haines says:

    Just think of the miracle that the gold cross did not melt in a fire a few hundred degrees cooler than the melting point of gold. Amazing.

  14. M27Holts says:

    Electrical fault apparently….jebus didnt know about flowing electrons so it not suprising the place burnt to the ground…

  15. Troubleshooter says:

    Flowing electrons? Whazzat? No, has to be demons or evil spirits. Yeah, that’s got to be what caused it…

  16. Someone says:

    Meanwhile, a teenage girl was burned in Bangladesh for reporting her headmaster had sexually assaulted her. How much does God care about this incident?


    I’m guessing not at all.

    Ah, a new one, at last.
