Bizarro is brought to you today by Creation.
If you like cartoons I have good news: here are three of them. If you don’t like cartoons, I have equally good news: there are literally dozens of other web sites that do not feature them. The choice is yours, my friend.
As for these cartoons, let me begin by applauding my good friend and colleague, Cliff Harris, for dreaming up the clever concept above, in which a driver has a prescription windshield. And if I were a less modest man, I’d also applaud myself for achieving this dandy drawing to illustrate it. But I’m not, so I won’t. I’ll leave that to others wiser than I.
Speaking of clever colleagues and fleshy hands slapping together, I must also applaud my known associate, Wayno, for the concepts below. I found these two ideas amusing and enjoyed illustrating them. If you do not find them amusing, please direct your complaints to Wayno at his blog: PleaseDon’tBeMeanToMeI’mOnlyTryingToAmuseYou.com
As my regular blog readers know, I’ve long been interested in the human phenomenon of belief in invisible magic people of all kinds. I was raised as a staunch Catholic, later explored fundamentalist Christianity, then free-form spirituality (during which time I was certain there was a god but none of the known religions had it right), then agnosticism (as I defined it; belief that knowledge of a supreme being is unknowable), and eventually rational thought, which can only lead to a certainty that the entire topic is a common delusion of the human mind (commonly known as “atheism.”)
Statistics would show that most of you reading right now believe in some sort of supreme being. Rest assured I am not making fun of you, just having a smile about the various ideas about what happens after life. Myself, I fully expect to close my eyes and cease to exist in any way, exactly like the billions of years that passed before I was born. I realize that most people are uncomfortable with this idea but I find it very reassuring.
For those of you interested in an intellectual approach to pursuit of the truth about this topic, I highly recommend reading “The God Delusion” by Richard Dawkins. I’ve personally read many dozens of books about theology, religion, and atheism, and this one is quite likely my favorite.
