Uh-oh. The word is out. Being an atheist evolutionist means all the porn you could want and being surrounded by big bags of money.

Good thing he left off the orgies. If people know about the orgies, we’d never get any peace.

    I tell you, if my significant other ever found out about those atheist orgies, I’d be in quite the pickle. Oh well, I could always just buy her agreement with one of my big bags of money.

    Yeah, Uber, I was just about to say that I just read his other cartoons, and man, they couldn’t be less funny. All he does is take a creationist talking point, and draw a stupid-looking character saying it.

    Notice the “favored races” highlighted on the Origins there. This ignorance is appearing in a lot of creationist claptrap, now, and also in an editorial by Tony Campolo (Wm. Clinton’s spiritual advisor, so it is claimed).

    The longer Expelled trailer also scans over the title of Origins starting at the bottom where “races” shows up, in an obvious attempt to dishonestly taint that book with racial ideas which do not appear in the book–or in its title, for anyone brighter than, say, Kevin Miller or Walt Ruloff.

    Anyway, just thought I’d mention that the cartoon follows the same ignorance as Expelled and the ignorant Campolo.

    I love this bit (from another part)
    “The Bible says there are one of two places a person will go after they die: heaven or hell. However, you may say, “I do not believe in hell!” The intensity by which one believes something does not change the truth of something. For instance, if I believed really, really hard that I could defy gravity by my mere mental power; would my sincere belief change the law of gravity? Of course not! If I sincerely believed that gravity was a hoax, and jumped out of a Boeing 747, I would not live too long… One’s fervor in belief does not change truth and reality. God’s word says that all lawbreakers will have their place in the lake of fire, which is the second death (Revelation 21:8). Hell is forever (Revelation 20:10). This is because our punishment needs to be eternal, because the sin is against an eternal God.”

    Big bags of money?

    The only big bags of money I anticipate are the ones that I hand over in paying off student loans I’ve accumulated while jettisoning most of my life in pursuit of actually figuring out the some answers to a few good questions. Seriously, anyone who thinks that “evilutionists” get big bags of money has never actually met one.

    Aside from mycologists, I mean. Everybody knows they’re the rock stars of biology with tons of high-paying job prospects. That’s why I’m doing it. All those mycological millionaires… I want IN, baby!

    You seem to be unaware of some basic legal principles. Everybody knows that anyone sentenced by a judge serves for as long as the judge lives. That’s why we set all the murderers and rapists free when the judges who sentence them die. A “life sentence” refers not to the lifespan of the convict but to that of the judge passing sentence.

    Sheesh, don’t you atheists know anything?

    20For the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse:

    This is the full text of the premise which begins the cartoon, and from which this particular bigot himself begins. And it’s largely Platonism, a “pagan philosophy” which found its way into a Jewish cult now called Christianity, which in its pure form is very nearly anti-science (Aristotle is the one who believed in observation, at least in biology).

    I don’t mean to rag on Paul, either, since his anti-science attitude was becoming popular in the Roman Empire at the time, though he didn’t help anything in that respect. The point is that by now we know that his words “the invisible things of him from the creation of the world are clearly seen,” not only sound like eastern paradox, they are nonsensical and worthless today (unless you enjoy that sort of thing as literature and “poetry”). We do not look around and understand the “invisible things,” or try to get at them by disputation and dialectic as Socrates strove to do. We have to get out there and actually observe what we can to understand the earth and the universe.

    Paul has some excuse. Nuckols is a self-made idiot spouting the ancient “wisdom” that led to the “dark ages.”

Hard-working academics in all fields desperately scrabbling around for a few dollars in grants to continue their research, most of which (a) contributes to the pool of human knowledge and (b) improves the human condition, while Oral fucking Roberts has a private plane, Benny Hinn lives in a $2M mansion, Robert Tilton, Pat Robertson, Billy Graham, and the rest of the prosperity christianists are ripping people off and rolling in cash. Then to top it off, make accusations about the evil Darwinist/climate change/whatever researchers in a conspiracy to fund their lavish lifestyles.

    It’s always a good idea, no matter how nauseating, to read through this stuff in order to get a good idea of how really stupid they’re getting.
    I’ve been dealing with them for 47 years and I am astonished that they are, as a group, actually getting dumber.
    I used to be able to discourse with the rank and file believer about some substantial arguments over rather deep issues about religion, philosophy, etc. Our disagreements could be civil and each of us would benefit from the other’s point of view.
    Now, the average believer is nothing better than a pinhead mouthing the stupid ravings of pseudo ‘scientists’ who wouldn’t know a fact if it bit them on the ass.
    When I question an average believer about the most basic tenets of their religious sect or even the bible itself, they are clueless. And they are getting dumber about science, as well.
    It’s as if they are spending all their time learning how to fight the ‘evils’ of science rather than learning their own faith.
    Perhaps they’ll get so stupid about their own faith they’ll eventually forget what the hell was so important about it, anyway.

    What I really liked was the last panel, where the guy is watching the nature program on TV instead of looking at the beautiful nature in the big picture window behind the TV. Two things wrong with that:

    1) The atheists I know passionately love nature;

    2) Nobody — not even an evil, foolish atheist — would set up their TV in front of a window. It would make it unwatchable.

    And I’m vastly entertained by the porn book titled “Porn” and the bags of money with the dollar signs on them. Especially the latter. Did those ever really exist, or is it one of those things like the poor person wearing a barrel and the spherical black bomb that only exists in cartoons?

    I was going to ask why the evil, foolish atheist would have a giant bible on an end table in his living room. But then I remembered that I have a giant bible on an end table in my living room. Comes in handy for arguments with theists. So never mind.

    Atheist orgies? It’s hard enough getting you characters out of your clothes. You are so convinced nobody’s watching you when you’re all alone you’ve developed this obsession with privacy. Usually takes 3 beers or two wine coolers to suppress your inhibitions and stiffen your resolve.

    Understanding the full implications of life after death—and most theists don’t get it ether, means losing your inhibitions in that department (hopefully to be replaced by discretion, since boning in the park tends to upset some witnesses).

    What implications? Dead people are watching you. No matter where you are, no matter what you’re doing, dead people are watching you. Your long deceased Aunt Edna, some 10 year old who just died of leukemia down the street, Father Murphy are all watching as you and the Misses commit wild monkey sex, and reviewing your performance.

    Kid: My little brother knows more about foreplay, and he’s four.

    Thousands of generations of dead people are watching everything you do, and boy do they have things to say to you when you croak. Accept it, get used to it, and stop letting your privacy fetish ruin your orgies. Pork in front of witnesses, you’re doing it already.

    But seriously…

    Had a look at the cartoon in question. The writing is self-important crap. The art? I have seen worse art in professionally published comic strips. But, I’m not prone to basing my conclusions on some clowns statements or deeds. Dan is a horrid dweeb and a good cartoonist.

    Being willing to acknowledge the bad in the good, and the good in the bad, is the surest sign of emotional maturity.

    Did the woman in the cartoon Captain Sunshine linked to remind anyone of Asian American Reporter Trish Takanawa from Family Guy? I wouldn’t think Dan is supposed to be watching that show.

    Money for being a non believer? Yeah, right. I’m still waiting for the zillions I’m supposed to be making off of Google Adsense on my blog.

    Ok, I’m not a scientist but I am an atheist. And personally, I can’t wait to get up in the morning and go pillaging and raping (this is after making breakfast, doing dishes, housework, playing games with the grandkids, writing out a bill or two and cooking dinner and reading these hysterically funny comments). That’s got to be worth a bag or two, don’t you think?

    Speaking of bad creationist cartoons…

    Oh my. I think the circular reasoning might have permanently damaged my brain.

    I think the circular reasoning might have permanently damaged my brain.

    Yes, God’s Word is true because God’s Word says it’s true. An oldie but a goodie.

    It’s a darn shame God’s Word doesn’t say that God’s Word is false. I can just imagine whole armies of fundies melting down like Norman in I, Mudd:

    You say you are … lying, but if everything you say is a lie then you are telling the truth but you cannot tell the truth because everything you say is a lie but you lie, you tell the truth, but you cannot for you lie … illogical! Illogical!

    Well…at least there’s a tiny piece of truth on his page:

    “The problem though, is that they are so blinded and misguided. They think they are doing this for God, but really they are doing it for their father the devil. “

    Must be a chemist.

    Hey!

    I’m sure us chemists are not seeing the kind of atheist orgy love mycologists are, but to suggest that we are unfamiliar with pornography…well, that hurts.

    It’s not like we’re physicists. Or mathematicians…

    Ameoba to jellyfish to fish-with-legs (what’s that??) to Dimetrodon to bird to monkey to man. That’s evolution for you!!! The only thing missing is a short explanation of why some birds lost their feathers and beaks, stopped flying and became monkeys. Otherwise it’s… Well, it’s Dan Nuckles. Though the guy is pretty obscure (not to mention untalented) I can now cite not less than 3 of his comics : this series, “Cration Wise” and “After Eden”. Now, a question open to scientific inquiry is: which of those is the most inane?

    Also, to me, the morality of this silly strip is : Scientists, stop worshipping your car!

    It’s a shame old danny boy doesn’t have a comments section on there.

    That does seem to be a common affliction among fundies, doesn’t it? Afraid of a little dissent? Aren’t they backed by an omnipotent being? What are they afraid of?

    Which is funny, because I don’t think I’ve ever known a scientist whose car is less than 5 years old. 10-14 is more the average.

    bags of money with the dollar signs on them…Did those ever really exist, or is it one of those things like the poor person wearing a barrel and the spherical black bomb that only exists in cartoons?

    Pushing Daisies had one, earlier this season (one of the characters won it). One of the many small details that help make that show Teh Hawesome.

    Michael X @#59:

    And while I know that not all homeschoolers are religious nutjobs, the nutjobs are the overwhelming majority.

    How about this?: if you want to homeschool your (or anyone’s) kids, you’re welcome to do so, if you can demonstrate that you’re doing at least as good a job as the public schools in your area.

    If parents want to homeschool their kids because the public schools suck, that’s fine. If they want to homeschool them to keep their children ignorant of 19th and 20th century science, that’s not so fine.
