  2. wright says:

    Moses is a great foil to Jesus and Mo; you wield him very adroitly!

  3. The Ridger says:

    I don’t comment often, but I must say I love Moses.

  4. Chris says:

    I wish more religious people used apophatic theology!

  5. mateo-argentino says:

    Im going to tell every religious person I know to try apophatic theology…Its like telling them to shut up, but nicely.

  6. kjordan says:

    I love how Mo can’t see over the steering wheel!

  7. Daoloth says:

    Its precisely this doublethink that characterises responses to the problem of natural evil.
    Me: “Why does god allow innocent children’s eyeballs to be eaten by parasitic worms?”
    Theologian: “Because we are all fallen and sinful”
    Me: “So how is that universal unconditional love?”
    Theo: “Oh, its a special ineffable kind. Not like the human kind which finds innocent- eyeball eating abhorrent and yucky.”
    Me: “Oh, you mean like psychopathic love? Now I get it. However, I find I no longer want to worship your god. Now bugger off.”

  8. John Moore says:

    The Ridger-fell of the apophatic wagon again….No hard feelings

  9. Poor Richard says:

    As Poor Richard says,

  10. Grumpy says:

    A bit simplistic view of apophatic theology, but it works for me… 😀

  11. I prefer apathetic theology myself, although, quite frankly, I don’t see why I should bother to give a monkey’s either way…

  12. Rosemarie says:

    They are not wearing seat-belts! If they crash they will surely dieeeeeee.
    Moses is an inspired additon but may lead to confusion for newbies, as to who Mo is.

  13. If only believers would go in for this here apophatic theology! If only they would all fall silent before the ineffable, and then stay that way. If they never said anything – we wouldn’t be always quarrelling with them. But that is not how things are.

  14. Peter Harris says:

    @ Poor Richard – very good work!

    @ Rosemaria, Inshallah…

  15. Toast in the machine says:

    Re Ophelia: As Douglas Adams once put it, ‘F the ineffable’ 🙂

  16. Uncle Roger says:

    Finally, a form of religion that I could deal with. If only the theists would actually do that…

    (But who am I to tell them how to behave?)

  17. Bodach says:

    If I weren’t an atheist, I’d become an apophatic apostle! I could go around preaching nothing…
    \\I’ll just show myself out now.

  18. Flea says:

    I love apophatic theology. It’s a short expression for: “All believers are complete morons except me and a few selected high-brow theologists of my liking”.

  19. PabloDF says:

    I’ve taken the liberty to translate this into Spanish and post it on my blog, Alerta Religión, of course citing the source and noting it’s under a CC license. Keep up the good work!

  20. jerry w says:

    What kind of theology puts the driver on the right side of the car?

    Why, that’s un-American and an unsafe way to drive in Los Angeles.

    Not that driving is safe in Los Angeles, unless you’re a female news
    person assigned to cover the mayor. And I do mean “cover”.

    End of local news, the world ends at 5, film at 11…

  21. Ketil G says:

    i wonder if mo watch where he drives? he can’t see over the steering wheel

  22. The juxtaposition of the two characters and their differing perspectives on religion made me reflect on my own journey of faith. Having grown up in a conservative household, I can relate to the struggle of questioning long-held beliefs and seeking a deeper understanding of the world. This comic serves as a reminder that the search for truth is a personal and complex endeavor, often filled with uncertainty and self-discovery.
