Expecting a big bonus from my Zionist paymasters for this one.

    Aha! I’m on to you, Author. This whole enterprise is a false flag operation that purports to criticize religion, but actually makes Jesus and Mo sympathetic characters.

  2. […] the latest Jesus and Mo strip, called “false.” A note in the email said “If you believe this, you’ll […]

  3. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Yup, denial is not just a river in Africa.

  4. DocAtheist says:

    Love it! Brilliant and perfect, and I just love it!

  5. Tom from PA says:

    Off topic: Why aren’t the RSS feeds working anymore for this website?

  6. JoJo says:

    If there really is a Jewish conspiracy to take over the world, can they get a bloody move on, please..?

  7. Author says:

    I don’t know, Tom. It’s very frustrating. The feed has changed to
    which I think works. But I can’t automatically redirect the old one to the new one.

  8. Matt says:

    Clever double bluff about your Zionist paymasters Author. You would say that, wouldn’t you!

  9. Debbie says:

    You don’t have a share button. How can I share it on facebook without that?

  10. Nassar Ben Houdja says:

    Once again comes the word
    Jews will take over the world
    The islamic beast
    On western europe does feast
    While flipping civilization the “bird”

  11. Author says:

    Debbie, the share button is a bit flaky. Sometimes it’s there, sometimes it isn’t. I’ll try to fix it.

  12. Michael says:

    9/11 was a conspiracy, just not the one the 9/11 Truthers claim it was.

  13. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Shouldn’t it be a conspiracy hypothesis until it’s been proven?

    Nassar, your mini-break has worked wonders; that one really hit the spot.

  14. Peter says:

    Keep it up !

  15. Grumpy says:

    9/11 wasn’t a conspiracy, it was actually carried out.

  16. Stephan Brun says:

    Debbie, Author:
    I’ve noticed the share button jumps about a lot on the page, based on one’s zoom level if not maximised. At the lower setting, it’s a blue-grey-red vertical ribbon to the left. At higher settings, the page acts like a phone screen, and is a horizontal ribbon up top.

  17. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Grumpy, 9/11 in fact is carried out every year. We Brits refer to it as ‘The ninth of November’.

  18. Grumpy says:

    AoS: Haha, holy crap does that mean there are 365 (6) conspiracies every year ? Also a Brit.

  19. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    I have my own conspiracy hypothesis about the Twin Towers attacks, and that is that the date was meticulously planned so that the conventional US date format coincided with their Emergency Services telephone number. Makes the date easier to remember.

    Grumpy, I put the Brit part in so Americans wouldn’t try to correct me. “It’s September eleven, asshole! Where did you go to school?”
    Not that those types of Americans frequent this haven of sanity. Thinking about it, wouldn’t September the eleventh (Sep XI) have occured in 11CE? (Yes,fellow pedants, I’m aware of the whole Julian calender thing, it’s just a joke).

  20. Freefox says:

    Lmoa, Acolyte. Though your fifth was a conspiracy, wasn’t it? I can never remember, is it Beethoven’s fifth or his ninth that goes all ba-da-da-doom? ^_^

  21. Grumpy says:

    AoS: I like the hypothesis and it makes me feel safer that our emergency number is 999, ha sort that one out terrorists !

  22. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    FreeFox, I’m not sure that Beethoven did a Stuttering Bomb Symphony.
    Which reminds me: what do you get if you cross a baby deer with a ghost? Bamboo.

    Grumpy, we do, however, have the non-emergency 112 number, so chance of bi-annual incidents there.
    Fuck! Where did I put that bluprint for the nuclear shelter?

  23. two cents' worth says:

    Freefox, I think you’re referring to Beethoven’s fifth symphony. I agree that it makes good theme music for a conspiracy. So does J. S. Bach’s Toccata and Fugue in D Minor.

    When the conspiracy’s plan is carried out, the soundtrack could be the 1812 Overture by Tchaikovsky, if the people setting off the explosions have a copy of the score and time their blasts so that they match or replace the cannon shots. Of course, this would only work if the people involved in making and/or carrying out the plan are soon defeated–the 1812 Overture has a happy ending.

    My browser (Mozilla Firefox) is showing a green and white patchwork quilt square pattern instead of your usual fox avatar. I hope this is only temporary–I like to see the fox.

  24. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Two cents’ worth, I don’t know if the quiz show Mastermind is aired over there, but the theme tune, called Approaching Menace, is ideal conspiracy music.

  25. plainsuch says:

    September 11 is different things to different people.
    1. It’s the Ethiopian New Year.
    2. The anniversary of the one time the George W Bush administration ever told the truth.
    3. The day in 2001 when they demolished 3 high rise office buildings in NYC that had been losing money for years.

    But it wasn’t theoretical, there actually was a September 11. 2001.

  26. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Plainsuch, there can only ever be one Queen Elizabeth the Second of England (other countries with monarchies might have one), being this nations second ever Queen Elizabeth; only one King Henry the Eighth, being our eighth king with the name Henry; so it follows that there can only be one September the Eleventh, which is the eleventh ever month of September.
    The nth of x is not the same as x the nth.
    The eleventh day of September is not the same as September the eleventh.
    This argument is purely pedantic, of course, and is based on logical semantics. 🙂

  27. wrinkel42 says:

    This is why we do not see their hands.

  28. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    Wrinkel42, you’re not suggesting that the boys ‘did a Hamza’, are you?

  29. two cents' worth says:

    AoS, Mastermind isn’t on TV in my area. I’ll Google it to see if I can at least hear the theme music, and maybe even watch a few videos of the show.

    And now, for more fun with language. In the USA (or at least in the area where I live), we say “Henry the Eighth,” but we don’t say “September the eleventh”; we just say “September eleventh.” That’s because we colonials don’t know or care when the first ever month of September was, or which nth month of September we had this year 😉 . Anyway, wouldn’t “September the eleventh,” a.k.a. “the eleventh September,” be written “September XI”?

    These days, when people in my area say, “September eleventh,” they mean a run-of-the-mill day (like September tenth and September twelfth). If they say “September eleven,” they either mean the events of September 11, 2001 (the planes taking down the World Trade Center, etc.) or they’re referring to the eleventh day of any September after 2001 as an unofficial secular holy day–a day when people commemorate the events of September 11, 2001. When most people talk about these things, they are too lazy to say “September eleven;” they say “nine eleven,” which is usually written as “9/11.” (When we use numerals for dates, Americans usually write them in the format month/day/year. “Nine one one” is how we refer to “911,” the phone number for emergency services.) As time passes, there seem to be fewer public commemorations of 9/11. Someday it will be like Pearl Harbor Day–people will mention it only on a major anniversary.

    To anyone who might remark that the way we refer to 9/11 is inconsistent with the way we refer to Independence Day (“the fourth of July” or “July 4th”), I would mention that July 4th is an official holiday, before quoting whoever it was who said that consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds 😉 .

  30. Vanity Unfair says:

    Ludwig van Beethoven’s fifth symphony was first performed in 1808.
    Its opening theme is three short notes followed by one long note.
    Samuel Morse, the noted painter, sent his first telegraphic message in 1836.
    The Morse code for V is three short signals followed by one long signal.
    V is the Roman numeral for 5.
    Can this be mere chance?
    (I’m not really bothered; I just like the coincidence.)

  31. wrinkel42 says:

    Because you can not see their hands.
    Means they have nothing to wave?

  32. dr John de Wipper says:

    Anybody want to comment?

    In Turkye, last week a Christmas serenade to the German embassy personnel by the choir of the German secondary school was interrupted by authorities.
    The school’s board (a Secular school) have been noticed, that is now FORBIDDEN to teach about xtianity or hindu or evolution or anything un-islamic.
    Showing xmas trees or other so-called xtian symbols are NOT allowed.

    Anybody dare to envision a UK or EU ban on ramadan or sugar feast? Not to mention studying Koran?


  33. Laripu says:

    The very biggest conspiracy is the one in which people collude to propagate the belief that the universe is about 6000 years old, and that humanity is descended from a single couple. Even the Catholic Church no longer adheres to that drivel, but many American believers (possibly mostly Baptists, I’m not certain) still claim that literally. They want to have it taught in schools. I perceive danger when people respect fables and myths as truths.

    But that sounds so angry, and I’m really just a happy guy with a beer in my hands, and time off work for the holiday. So happy “time off work” to all y’all. 🙂

  34. hotrats says:


    The quote is worth reading in full:
    “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and to-morrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — ‘Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.’ — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.”

    Ralph Waldo Emerson, Self-Reliance

  35. Hotrats, I think those are words that Trump lives by. He’s now walking back everything he said he would do during the campaign.

  36. plainsuch says:

    On behalf of pedants everywhere, these three things are not the same.

    To be great is to be misunderstood.
    To be misunderstood is to be great.
    It is great to be misunderstood.

  37. FreeFox says:

    @Dr.John: I’m really sick of Westerners whining how unfair it is that they aren’t allowed to discriminate, censor, imprison, and execute like the barbarians. Be glad, for fuck’s sake that in the UK/EU it is still impossible to ban the study of the koran or imprison people for celebrating whatever holiday they please. It’s not an achievement to be envious of in other countries. Do you really think, countries that censor and regulate “other” religions allow freedom to their “own” culture? Have you any idea how many muslims have disappeared in prisons in the last year here in Turkey? Do you really think if you get a government that “gets tough” on Muslims in the UK or the US, it’ll stop there, and that critical places like the Cock & Bull remain untouched? Jesus fucking Christ, religious freedom isn’t some arbitrary protectorate for idiots, no matter how idiotic those protected behave. It’s part of the liberty of thoughts and convictions. Together with freedom of speech and the right to privacy, it is the basis on which every other freedom stands. And you morons have been chiselling away at all three out of an imaginary fear of… beards with bombs! Sheesh…

  38. dr John de Wipper says:

    Oh, but I am with you there!
    Only, in my book,freedom of religion stops at the point where it forces or prohibits others; like in todays Europe, moslims forbid nonmoslims to eat within there vicinity during ramadan; forbid the comsumption of alcohol; do not allow christmas trees in public space; … the list goes on.
    That is over my threshold.

  39. FreeFox says:

    You’re really going to perpetuate the myth of the prosecuted Christian, Christmas-forbidden, Sharia-law-already-in-effect? Where in the Western world aren’t you right now drowning in christmas decorations, songs, and food? Do you have any credible evidence of serious islamic *law* curbing civil liberties anywhere within the EU (counting the UK still amongst it)?

    And you just bemoaned the fact that Christmas celebrations were forbidden in TURKEY and that you couldn’t do the same to Ramadan in the EU. That was your post:

    “In Turkye, last week a Christmas serenade to the German embassy personnel by the choir of the German secondary school was interrupted by authorities.
    The school’s board (a Secular school) have been noticed, that is now FORBIDDEN to teach about xtianity or hindu or evolution or anything un-islamic.
    Showing xmas trees or other so-called xtian symbols are NOT allowed.
    Anybody dare to envision a UK or EU ban on ramadan or sugar feast? Not to mention studying Koran?”

    Not: ” in todays Europe, moslims forbid nonmoslims to eat within there vicinity during ramadan; forbid the comsumption of alcohol; do not allow christmas trees in public space; … the list goes on.”

    Moving the goalposts much?

  40. FreeFox says:

    Also, a typo got into my email address. Hence the lack of avatar, I think.

  41. Son of Glenner says:

    As a vegan, I would like to see a ban on references to Turkey on this forum.

  42. dr John de Wipper says:

    Today: Ankara , Berlin.
    Oh tempora, oh mores….

  43. FreeFox says:

    And, are you now also a Berliner, Dr. John? Nice and greasy, sticky on the outside and gooey on the inside?

  44. dr John de Wipper says:

    No, I am not Berliner ( and “a” Berliner is some typical Berlinian candy ball ).
    But, my daughter lives in Berlin, and my wife and I were sure glad to be able to contact her!

  45. FreeFox says:

    In Kreuzberg uffjewachsen. Ick weeß watn Pfannkuchen is, Junge. Drum sachick ja drooßen klebts un drinne schmierts. Familie ha ick ooch noch da, weeß schon wie sich det anfühlt.

    So which times do you prefer, John? The 1980s, with Fascists bombing Bologna, Lockerbie still the worst terrorist attack in the UK, the invasion of Grenada, civil wars in El Salvador, Angola, Lebanon, Haiti… the 1970s with Vietnam, Ethiopia, Cambodia, Iran, the Munich terrorist attacks, the RAF in Germany, the IRA in the UK, Pinochet in Argentine and Nixon in the US? The 1960s when humankind came closer to extinction than ever during the Cuban Missile Crisis? Segregation in the US? The 1950s with Colonialism still going strong? Or the glorious period between 1914 and 1945 where morals certainly were much higher than today. How about the 19th century with Industrialisation and Colonisation? That the time of high morals you want to go back to? When exactly was the time you refer to when tempora and mora was up to snuff, Dr. John?

  46. dr John de Wipper says:

    It is such a nice phrase, “in times of peace”.
    There has NEVER EVER been any day of peace.
    There may have been local periods of relative peace, but worldwide, somewhere war was being waged as long as there have been humans.
    We (and I would think most of us) tend to wear eyeshields that limit any broad view. Many humans do get wiser, but humanity obviously always manages to fall back.

  47. Jeremy Pereira says:

    Just a quick correction: 112 is not a “non emergency number”, it is the GSM standard emergency number and also the standard emergency number in the EU. In the UK it works the same as dialling 999.And yes, 11th February is a special day http://www.eena.org/events/european-112-day-2016#.WFqA1LF0ffB

  48. Friendly Extremist says:

    “The Holocaust never happened, but it was great”.

    That’s possibly the best summary of Holocaust denial.

    Good job! 🙂
