Absurdities in Genesis: Resurrection!
So, I'm trying to get back into the habit of updating again, so I think I'll start with some easy stuff.
This comic suffers from what I call desperate relevance, which is a problem that in my experience seems to be plagueing the Christian community, particularly those with the inerrantist view. Just look at them trying to conflate things like expiration dates with the mythical fruit in the garden. Sure, you may say they're jut trying to be cute or funny, but this isn't even clever. It is simply desperate. They have nothing relevant to say, so they slap a meaningless picture trying to make a joke, which barely gets a chuckle if that. Hell, even the Kid in the picture looks like he's rolling his eyes.
So, lo and behold it took me two seconds to come up with what I think is much funnier:
I am an Atheist with a degree in history and interests in both science and philosophy. Obviously my historical knowledge is my forte, but I do try and be accurate and reasonable in the other needed fields as best I can.
