  1. Poor Richard says:

    Perfect example of the reductive responses we’ve all gotten used to. Congratulations, again, Author.

    But, as Poor Richard and his Mrs. always tell their children: “If you hear a loud bang, hit the ground.”

  2. Uncle Roger says:

    If you can’t come up with any evidence and logic isn’t working for you, then by all means, try childish name-calling. Works every time. Plus, it makes you seem really, really, intelligent. Or something.

  3. Jaecp says:

    This seems more like the christian forum I got banned from than iidb 🙂

    Good show still!

  4. Kiki says:

    Will you ever put L. Ron Hubbard as a character of this comic? Maybe add some Xenu?

  5. Poor Richard says:

    Jaecp: Banned? Good for you. There should be a medal. Wonderful lesson:
    you don’t like the message, get the messenger out of here.

    As Mark Twain said, and PR seconds (paraphrasing), I believe the librarians of Boston are correct. I certainly wouldn’t want young boys reading “Huckleberry Finn.” It would probably corrupt them

    We hope.

  6. Poor Richard says:

    To those among us who fear death (reference previous blogs): of course we do — consciousness is fun. But relax: each of us already has over 12 billion years experience with oblivion.

  7. Trevor says:

    An accurate description of whats going through an atheist’s head, to be sure. And what about the fact (seems consistent enough to be fact to me) that atheists lurking forums end up knowing more about the Christian religion than the believer.

  8. Trevor says:

    On a side note:

    WOOOO! “By popular demand – “Stop drawing holy prophets in a disrespectful manner – NOW”” THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN!

  9. Daniel says:

    Keep going, Jesus! They’ve just never heard these arguments before.

    Once they hear it another eleven times, they’ll be used to it, and more receptive to the Gospel message.

  10. Colonel Leisure says:

    Frothing at the Mouth Atheists are just as bad as any Frothing at the Mouth religious zealots.

  11. Ain’t that the truth? Those pesky frothing atheists who keep trying to persuade everyone to believe in



    what is that supernatural entity that atheists keep trying to persuade everyone to believe in, again? It seems to have slipped my mind.

  12. Poor Richard says:

    Ophellia: she’s not supernatural. Her name is Mother Earth. Goddess help her now.

  13. Josh says:

    no no, it’s athe of course. All hail athe!

  14. fenchurch says:

    @Colonel Leisure: nice “tu quoque” there. What’s your point?

  15. Bones'sDog says:

    Fenchurch, I think his point was that frothing at the mouth is bad, it’s a sign of pathology. Drowning, rabies, poisoning, massive radiation dose, air in the lungs due to wounding or some other bad thing.
    Y’know, he’s actually got a point.
    Frothing at the mouth is bad.
    No matter who is suffering from it.

    I’m unsure though that his assertion is a tu quoque. It’s more an adage or aphorism or truism.

    You say all men are created equal. Your biology is inconsistent with you claiming to be a man so your point is wrong.
    That’s more like a tu quoque.
    I think.

    No, I am not picking on you. I just find that your comments are often the best.
    The best what I think I’ll valiantly avoid saying.

    Josh, if we kill Athe slowly would that be a pain in …

    Ophelia Benson, those frothing atheists keep trying to get people to believe in paramedics, E.M.S., 999/911 and the power of modern surgery to seal the wound and re-inflate the lung.
    Among other improbable things.
    I wonder how anyone could be expected to be that gullible?

    Priests, do, please, explain again where your knowledge comes from? I’m only just hearing it for the 59,987,876th time and I don’t think I’ve quite got all of the nuances and allegorical metaphors, yet. I think I need another run through from the beginning. What was that thing about a book?
