I get tired of blessings where God is thanked when it’s obvious the imaginary sky deity did nothing–or if he did, he let the natural disaster happen for his own glory in the aftermath (which is a pretty shallow thing to do). This year, let’s remember our fellow humans. The ones that put themselves in the line of fire, the ones that saved our asses from nature and the ones that find new ways to prevent tragedy when the inevitable storms strike. We are truly blessed by the mere luck of being born in a time period with so many innovations and life-saving techniques. Here’s to religion and superstition NOT impeding human efforts to make all our lives better.
This is from 2009 when I was experimenting with adding a separate comics blog but it never quite worked out, so we just revamped the entire site. Just discovered it again so I’m reposting as it got deleted when we changed over to the new design. Happy Easter Littlest Atheist.
If you don’t know what “There can be only one” means then search for it. It’s a classic.
Isn’t Easter kind of ruined by the whole torture scene and then raising from the dead like a zombie? How does this mix with egg hunts, chocolate and pretty baskets? Happy Easter!
Yes, this cartoon is ver-r-ry old in terms of Freethunk. I’m thinking it may even go back to 2001 or 2002 if I dug through my original files. At that time I was giving Jesus quite a few pokes in the ribs with my cartoons. Now-a-days, Jesus cartoons are everywhere on the net including videos like the one below:
This is actually a well thought out theory on how Christ may have actually ended up on the cross. See God is outside of time therefore he could be around for St. Patrick’s Day if he wanted to. Matt Newton, if you don’t know, dabbles in Biblical Archaeology and has researched this Jesus meets St. Patrick’s Day event extensively.
Since I’ve been on an Easter kick I figured I would post a toon I drew several years ago for the holiday. Of course Easter doesn’t go back this far, but if it did there would be the Eastor Raptor!
Cartoonist Matt Newton did this for my previous Freethunk blog that I was working on before ComicsGoneBad.com came in and revamped the site design. I want to get his work back into the archives as he is hilarious. Visit his site at ComicBlasphemy.com
If you’ve never had a cat you might not get this, but it’s sooooo true.
