The Dawkins Delusion

Believing in an invisible man who lives in the sky and who does not interact with the material world is "logical"? Maybe at your alma mater, Bugtussle HS, it is, LOL.

Oh, and sorry to ruin your wish-dream, but "Dickey" is straight. Sorry.

This has got to be my all time favorite by you! Great job!

Great job Dale ...

Who'd a thunk it, a good and evil Anonymous.

Dale said...

Yes Odie. First I thought split personality. Don't know where Anon1 came up with a gay-bash angle. Oh wait that's where the lefities default to after they check for racism and sexism. Happy New Year!

So if we can't see God then the Bible is a forgery?

"Scientism"?? Now Christians are trying to make Science sound like an Occult practice?? Goofballs. News flash: if it wasn't for your "Scientism" we'd all still be dying of Polio at age 40. You people are weird.

So if Johnny made the pony, and God made Johnny, then who or what made God?

Sarah said...

Sorry, but that little boy still didn't answer Dawkin's question. That checkmate is still valid.

Dale said...

Anon 3 and Sarah,

We are confined to time/space. The eternal regression argument works here, but also screams for the necessity of a creator outside of time/space to explain existence. You can only reason to that point. If you were capable of wrapping your brain around more than that, the rest of us should be worshipping you.

God puts it this way in Isaiah 55:9
"For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts. than your thoughts".

So then does the kid smash the pony because the pony doesn't believe in him?

Anonymous said...

Awesome!!!

God's not going to smash the pony. He gives you your choice: Either you pay for your wrongs or you can opt for Christ to. It's a no brainer. All other religions have you pay for your wrongs. Christianity has someone else get you forgiven for free. How much more love can God give? The choice will ultimately be yours NOT His.

Dale said...

Johnny smashes the pony after he himself inhabits the perfect pony to pay the price for all the other rebellious ponies. You don't go to Hell for not believing, but for dying with your sins unforgiven.

Dale, Great toons! I look forward to Thursday and each new one. However, one DOES go to hell for not believing. Christ said, "those who believe NOT will be condemned." Further, they must believe "everything whatsoever" He taught. Only the Catholic Church, which is the only Church instituted by Christ, HAS the obligatory "everything whatsoever". All others have broken from His Church and "walk with Him no more." Please, everyone, examine the extraordinary claims of the Catholic Church and come home.

Amen

Who say's Christianity is right? What about Islam, Judaism, Zeus, Odin, Ra, even the native American spirits? Why aren't they valid. Look at Christianity from an elevated, objective view: it seems crazy. Guy is God but somehow still a man. Guy does miracles. Guy is killed. Guy rises from the dead. Do you know why it seems crazy. Because it is!

Okay, let's pretend both science and religion is wrong. Now what? Would you base your beliefs on which possibilities won a popular vote or the ones that were supported by the greatest amount of physical evidence?

Anonymous said...

Can one afford to not believe in Christ? At worst if your wrong then you are just dead, in the ground.

But if you don't believe.....and you are wrong in that belief....eternal sufferring awaits....God gives you the choice though.

Plus I believe that most people don't want to believe because they don't want to have a moral compass to guide them in their life as to what is right and wrong and not just doing what feels good now.

I quite like the cartoon. It is a very accurate depiction of your lack of understanding of how evolution works. No scientist thinks clay evolves into ponies.
Richards book just explains some of the 'mysteries' of the natural world. There is a chapter on rainbows. Do you think his explanation of refraction is incorrect? Perhaps you could call it 'refractionism' and the people who 'believe' in it 'refractionists'. Then say to kids that god made rainbows because clearly you can't separate light wavelengths with water because you can't touch light, and then find a quote in the bible as proof.

Oh yeah, and 'scientism' made it possible for you to have your blog.

The lack of sense in this cartoon is remarkable. The only way it would remotely make sense in the given context is if the boy were to magically give the clay pony life, but in that case the clay pony would likely be perfectly able to see and hear its maker, effectively destroying the entire weird point that you're trying to make.

Good artwork though.
