    Science! Providing difficult, if not unanswerable, questions since the Greeks.
    Religion! Providing unquestionable answers for just as long.

  2. JayBee says:

    I wonder how they could’ve invented the source of sin coming from a talking snake AND people taking it seriously (that’s the worst part)!!!!

  3. […] The cartoon where Jesus, Mohammed, and the unseen Barmaid talk are usually good. Like this one: Snake. […]

  4. mat says:

    was that Jesus’s attempt of pulling the Occam’s
    razor card?

  5. Mags says:

    How come there is an implied understanding that evolution is contrary to scripture? The garden of Eden story, the Noah story etc., etc., were illustrations not fact. We aren’t supposed to believe it happened for goodness sake.

  6. Kat says:

    Regrettably, but unsurprisingly, there are those who hold to the belief that it did literally happen.

    I suppose it’s a case of in for a penny, in for a pound.

  7. Mephisto says:

    Then why should we believe in bible, anywhere, if we decide for ourselve, what is true and what not?

  8. Dan says:

    First of all I am not religious.
    The Quran actually does talk about evolution of life from a single cell.
    Another point is that using “probably” is not actually scientific. I get that it’s a joke, but maybe you don’t get that your rambles are about as educated as a Roman Catholic they are just a different view point.

  9. Mags says:

    Aw, c’mon Mephisto! It’s a combination of history and fireside stories. Try reading it and you’ll see what I mean.

  10. Ford says:

    I used this to illiustrate a post on Hamilton’s Rule. OK?

  11. andres says:

    would not the Occam Razor be on Jesus’ side on this one?

  12. azurefrog says:

    The talking snake is not a simpler answer, because you then have to explain the origin of the talking snake.

  13. Acolyte of Sagan says:

    test post

  14. Bones'sDog says:

    Further to Azurefrog, you also have to explain the current lack of talking snakes, talking fiery bushes, flying equines and other special species.
    Though one could possibly just handwave that one with the “no room on the boat” conjecture.
    It works for stegosaurs, unicorns, Orcs and dragons.

    And maybe the flying equines evolved into reindeer?

  15. Bones'sDog says:

    The problem with blaming the snake, the Adversary, Satan, Santa or Glochk the Winding Windcharm is that good people, sinless people would not have eaten the fruit no matter how they were conned. A sinless Adam would have obeyed the law regardless of the logic of the Advocate of Evil.
    So Adam and his peri-clone were evil sinners when built.
    Their design was flawed from the start.
    Their designer was not very good.

    It made broken people.
    Then blamed them for being broken instead of doing a factory reset.
    That’s a little childish.
