    Thor kicks ass….he has a freaking hammer!

  2. Maggs says:

    Thor’s Hammer! You’ve hit the nail on the head with this one, Author!

  3. Colonel Leisure says:

    He has returned. It’s Easter all over again. YAY!

  4. Vlad the Emailer says:

    I like the egyptian goddess Bastet thought – no catty remarks about her, please.

  5. bossykate says:

    great to have you back author – it was a tough 2 weeks without J + M.

  6. Atheismo says:

    I haven’t even read it yet! I’m just so damn excited to see it! I’m only going to read one panel per day in order to savor it!


  7. fra says:

    what? no chocolate eggs??

  8. Bodach says:

    Thanks, Author, for exhibiting your free will and returning to the site.

  9. jerry w says:

    After being nailed up, do you suppose Jebus was cross about it?

    And as part of a holy trinity for eternity with Larry and Curly,
    just how much mo’ could you ask of a guy?

  10. Omar says:

    Welcome back! 🙂

  11. Uncle Roger says:

    Ha! See, Author, you ain’t so great. Jesus rose from the dead after only three days. It took you more than two weeks!

    (but we missed you more)

  12. Thor’s hammer! Ooh-er!


  13. (Seriously, I know a guy on h2g2 who’s a bit nutty about Thor and his hammer.)

  14. hyoid says:

    I’m pickin’ up what you’re puttin’ down!
    Mo wid a turban ’n Jesus wid a crown!
    Barmaid’s s’portin’ reason in her pub.
    Drillin’ thru theology, drainin’ out the tub.
    (or something like that)

  15. Mr Gronk says:

    And let’s not forget that ridiculous Horus, who was supposed to have been born of a virgin …

  16. Mr Gronk says:

    Looks like my avatar’s been reborn as well

  17. A god who engaged in auto-fellatio and then spit out his own jizz to make other gods…. dunno why that one’s not more popular.

  18. Petra says:

    point of grammar: created beings WHOM – I’m not inanimate.
    PS: Thanks for continuing this vital work.

  19. Stonyground says:

    Mrs. Stonyground saw a picture of a Hindu goddess with lots of arms and declared, “That must be the Hindu goddess of multi-tasking”.

    Actually I think us blokes can do multi tasking, on weekends I provide my family with full English breakfasts and this consists of grilling, frying, microwaving, and washing up all done with perfect timing and nothing gets overdone or burnt. But then Mrs. Stonyground is really good at reading maps so maybe our family is a bit odd.

  20. maggs says:

    Petra, I love your point of grammar. I hate it when folks don’t see the point of grammar. (pun not sarcasm)

  21. catballou1 says:

    Point of grammar: In this case, it’s who, not whom.

  22. Specops17 says:

    Maggs: Let’s leave our grammars out of this. Mine was a wonderful woman.

  23. JMo says:

    Wow I almost missed this genuflecting to the new brazen idol I created in the likeness of our “Author”. A huge towering old man with a beard and a stern look of consternation…..Wait I plagerized the image of god wait where are the lightning bolts, the famine, the burning wrath????? Maybe Author is a more benign omnipotant incorporeal being!

  24. MrGronk says:

    Author, I take it you’re going to smash JMo’s brazen idol and make him eat it? Everyone knows God looks like Barmaid.

  25. DonR says:

    Mo’s comment in the last frame is okay, but I prefer “la ilaha”.

  26. JoJo says:

    The Thunder God rode out one night
    On his favourite filly
    “I’m Thor!” he cried
    His horse replied,
    “You forgot your thaddle, thilly..”

  27. tsly says:

    It’d sound less ignorant of all of you if you did not celebrate thinly veiled pagan holidays, masquerading as Christian holidays. (Go ahead, look up Yule, or Eostar – That’s Easter to you – or even the true meaning of Halloween)
    And also, try to keep in mind that the fifth day of every week is named Thursday, an anglicized form of Thor’s Day; thus, still keeping his name on your lips.

  28. Brian says:

    I created an Atheist / rational thinker store, mostly out of anger and frustration at the general public’s stupidity and/or apathy about just these kinds of things. Check it out if you like… I keep all of the prices as low as is possible through zazzle in order to get as much out there as I can and help spread the word that we’re not going to take this shit anymore. 🙂*

  29. Martin Stennert says:

    Actually, a God who created people he knew would annoy him, is that so hard to believe. I mean, of course, it is irrational, but then, who isn’t? I “created” two people (my sons) who often times annoy the hell out of me – and I did know that this would happen beforehand – but I went and had them anyway. (And I don’t even regret it… escept when they broke off the DVD-tray of my computer, because they stepped on it to better reach my desk and “borrow” my pencils.) But seriously, anyone who ever fell in love, married, had kids, joined some club or society, went on a trip with friends or visits his parents knows beforehand that it’ll be hassle, annoyance, heartache and harsh language. Why do we do it? Cuz it’d be blood lonely otherwise. Just as the universe would be bloody lonely for any monotheistic deity without some sentient creatures to get into rows with and make up again afterwards every now and then. God (if there is such a being) made us to love him. And real love – other than the silly sunday school crappy poetry harmony crap idea of love – is never without hurt, fights, misunderstanding, and misery. In fact, it sucks. It’s just better than being without. (Of course, we might have made him for the same reason…)

    The pig thing is one rare case of practicality. In Europe and the mid east, they didn’t store the meat well, didn’t cook it hot enough for long enough, so eating pig meat would make them sick. It was a very different story in Asia where people knew how to cook the pig properly.

    Same story with kosher and halal slaughter, it was one way to have meats last longer. With the development of refrigeration it is all null and void, but religion simply cannot move with the times.

  31. Walter says:

    Maher pointed out that in the movie “Noah” with Russell Crowe D-G is the one with anger management problems. Wow!

  32. Archophob says:

    Martin Stennert,
    i was about to post the same. ANY father knows beforehand that his kids WILL piss him off every once in a while. Right now our daughter is extremely good at annoying us, and while her brother was more or less conceived by accident, she was the result of “yes we want a second child”.
