    Todos nosotros en el mundo, Carmen, no somos hispanos.

    Look at Carmen’s glasses! Her lens are kind of different.

    I wonder if Zorro ever retired?

    Right on. At my church there’s actually a group that likes science and gets together several times a year. We learn about a subject, consider Scripture. The minister who started it agrees with my biochemist father, who is also a member of the group. We think God has let us learn more about the world as we have been able to handle it.

    I’m not relying on only faith or on only science to deal with a terrible combination of health issues. My bailiwick is history, trying to piece out how things once happened based on the fairly random things fallible people wrote down. I know the things people have erroneously believed in. But it is my faith and my doctors together that I put my trust in.

    I think it must be Carmen’s late husband. It was specified at some point, that she had been married, but she now was a widow.

    And was that a hospital bracelet on him in the first few panels?

    GoldenRoya: It is not either/or. My father was clergy and the discoverer of three Upper Cretaceous fossil species. Before “scientist” became an occupation, most scientists were also clergy: Bacon, Copernicus, Kepler, Newton, Swedenhborg, Priestly, Faraday, Mendel, Lemaitre, Bakker, and Darwin was in seminary when Lyell persuaded him to take a break from studies and sign on to the Beagle expedition. Since God can neither be verified nor falsified by the scientific method (see Thomas Huxley "On Agnosticism), atheism is just as much a faith statement as any other religion.

    No, a watch, as he looks at the time in panel four.

    Had she cast her mind back in time to when her husband had been there to talk to? It is sweet, with some sadness thrown in.
    Interesting how he kind of fades out.

    My dad was talking about this happening to him. It kind of freaked us kids out a bit. But I guess it’s true.

    “Atheism deals with science and science deals with the provable.”

    That’s the way it’s supposed to work. In actuality, science does deal with the provable. But atheism deals with scientism (the belief that everything must be explainable by natural processes), which ironically often flies in the faith of actual scientific knowledge.

    Christianity (which you lump in with “religion”) involves things that may not be provable, but for which there nonetheless may be evidence. Or, as someone has put it, Christian faith may go beyond reason but it doesn’t run counter to it.
