    Just becaue they speak for God is no reason to hold them to a higher standard of behavior.

  2. Choirboy says:

    The same perfect god who summoned thousands to the Hajj to worship him and then made it so hot that over 550 of them died. It really is hard not to laugh.

  3. Chiefy says:

    If only the one true god would send us a summary of the correct laws, maybe on gold tablets or something. And make them visible this time.

  4. Bvereshagen says:

    Chiefy: I would be satisfied with a deity that didn’t apparently believe that the earth was the centre of the universe that said deity claims to have created.

  5. paradoctor says:

    Perfection is over-rated. It is neither possible nor desirable.

  6. Henry Ford says:

    As a biologist, and therefore interested in evolution, it was drummed in to me that to win the evolutionary race you do not have to be perfect ( or optimal in evolutionary speak) simply better than your neighbour.

  7. M27Holts says:

    So Mo was perfect was he? H’m, possibly the biggest whopper told in all of history….

  8. Donn says:

    No reason why not. Take a rock, say, and ask yourself whether it’s perfect, or imperfect. It’s “in the eye of the observer” – “perfect” is a specific ideal relating to a specific standard. The question is moot because the only standard for such rocks that immediately springs to mind, would be that they kind of hang together and seem more or less rocky. Can hardly lose.

    Mo is perfect because he was selected by an omniscient agency to represent its perfect laws. We wouldn’t have him over for some beers, but that’s irrelevant.

    Barmaid is kind of pulling a fast one here, when she objects to Mo’s status as a human being, however flawed by our own standards – that’s irrelevant. Allah is perfectly capable of using him to present the perfect laws, like a wine is no worse for having been carried around by a donkey. Mo doesn’t see it that way, but who cares.

    Of course, if you don’t believe any of it, then you aren’t going to believe Mo no matter what he says, but that’s where we got on.

  9. M27Holts says:

    The barmaid is correctly pointing out mo’s astounding hubris. You daren’t point out his obvious porky pies in his own Mein Kampf because that would be islamophobia wouldn’t it?

  10. Shaughn says:

    Amazing how the description of humans in panel one fits their gods.

  11. M27Holts says:

    God made man in his own image…..Clearly a FALSE statement. But….the converse is very, very likely to return TRUE….

  12. M27Holts says:

    You can see why Martin Luther didn’t like using his brain, and getting into bed with the Devil’s comliest whore…..

    Henry Ford:
    I don’t have to outrun the bear; I just have to outrun you.

  14. postdoggerel says:

    Before faith comes, reason is king. After faith comes, reason is servant.

  15. M27Holts says:

    The bear wouldn’t catch me. It would slip on the shit I have left in my slipstream and break it’s neck…

  16. postdoggerel says:

    Gov. Jeff Landry of Louisiana signs a bill mandating that the Ten Commandments be displayed in all public classrooms. He says of the legislation, “I can’t wait to be sued.”

    Mr. Landry is sued by 28 organizations, including the American Civil Liberties Union, Amalgamated Atheists of America, the Benevolent and Protective Order of Beelzebubbians, the Spouses of U.S. Supreme Court Justices Neighborhood Welcome Wagon Association, and Liberals for the Prevention of Morality.

  17. M27Holts says:

    Postdog. Come and live in sunny Swinton. We can get pissed in my garden bar and laugh at religious spunk wombles. I genuinely feel for American Atheists or Humanists or whatever…they are the peeps with their finger in the dyke…holding back the deluge of crass religious clap-trap….

    There always seems to be a lot of room here at the Cock & Bull comments section, so here goes…

    I only pop in on an irregular basis, so I’m always a bit late with my helpful comments 🙁

    @Bvereshagen — according to the Big Bang theory *everywhere* came from the same point. So everywhere can equally be considered the centre of the universe.

    @Henry Ford — it seems really hard to make correct statements about evolution. Maybe because the basic concept is too simple?

    You don’t just have to be better than your neighbour; there were plenty of dodos that were “better” than their neighbours — but it wasn’t enough. They all went extinct.

    All you need to do is *survive* long enough to *pass your genes onto your offspring*.

    The world is brutal, unforgiving and generally trying to eat you. The world is also changing. ***IF*** any members of your species have any mutations which make it more likely that they survive long enough to breed (and if, conversely, their neighbours are dying off before breeding) THEN those helpful mutations will get fixed and you’ve evolved. Well done!

    ***IF NOT***, bad luck. You go extinct. Like 99% of all species.
