    Ah, that’s like governments who believe encryption should be totally secure and yet have back doors for the police by just: Nerd Harder.

    This explains soooooooo much today. Nice job Author

  3. Son of Glenner says:

    And yet they keep on coming to the same pub!

    Is the Cock & Bull the only pub in their neighbourhood? And why do they seem to be the only customers? I find it hard to believe that their custom is enough to make the pub a going concern; perhaps I should try to believe harder.

    Belief is as necessary to humans as oxygen. It is part of our nature and is a positive evolutionary trait. Imagine having to reason every decision.

  5. Laripu says:

    Son of Glenner, Moses has been to the pub, so they’re not the only customers. I’m hoping they get visits there from Ganesh and the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Surely the FSM could use a nice glass of Chianti? Sucked in through a noodely appendage?

    It’s the perfect place to tell a cock and bull story.

  6. Troubleshooter says:

    So they want to believe harder … which means that they are unwilling to examine their beliefs to see if they align with reality, which they don’t.

    Seems to me there’s an adjective for that: “Deluded.”

  7. Son of Glenner says:

    Laripu: You forgot to mention the Invisible Pink Unicorn.

    Oh, wait, maybe she does drop in but we can’t see her, being invisible as well as pink.

    I think Thor and Joseph Smith have dropped in, but hardly count as regulars. Joseph Smith doesn’t drink anyway, does he?

    How about Russell’s Teapot as one of the utensils in the bar?

  8. Walter Walcarpit says:

    Thanks Laripu, I’ve been visiting the Cock & Bull for perhaps a decade and I had never before got the name.
    Have one on me.

    When the going gets tough, the guff gets going.

    RaymondM. Religionists rely on the evolutionary subroutines in a childs mind to propagate their ridiculous dogma into impressionable kids. Some of those kids grow up to realise that their parents fed them bullshit…unfortunately that isn’t 100% of them…

    FSM, oh wonderful, I had forgotten He/She/it/them

    Son of Glenner: This comic takes place in a magical realm where only deities can inhabit.

    The barmaid is the avatar of the Author and hence the top deity of this place.

    If that last panel isn’t t-shirt material, then god has forsaken us all.

    “Believe Hard 6: Just Believe Already!” – this time its personal!
