    Never figured Binkley’s dad to be the religious type. Guess I missed this arc the first time around.

    People take their theological disputes very seriously….

    Yeah, right. You read the headlines and you will see 99% of man’s inhumanity to man is due to anger, greed and other results of atheistic, hedonistic philosophy.

    LOL..the arguments over religion or no religion are pathetic. People that have deep faith are not less intelligent, nor are they more intelligent. People are people. That religion can be abused, there is no doubt, but humans would just find something else to fight over. We always have and sadly always will. Anyone that thinks they are superior based on belief or no-belief is pretty darn sad. And for all the atrocities committed in the name of religion, there are just as many done by non religious people like Stalin or Mao.

    Binkley’s dad knows his King James Bible… at least, those parts that suits him.

    This strip is calling out a specific slice of religion: the born again fundamentalist community. This community is militaristic about morality, blind to science, and avid believers that God should torture people forever. Not all religions are like that, and commenters who lump all spiritual people together because of the few are simply uneducated bigots. But that’s the atheistic, evolutionist, secular model for demeaning people who don’t agree with them…

    Here at Bloom County, on Oct 10 (Thursday), several of them implied I was an idiot and did not understand science. So, I posed a scientific quandary regarding evolution’s foundations. Not a single one answered the question. I was hoping to get educated, but maybe the question was too hard.

    Techno-barbarians – I love that term! Thanks.

    Read it. “possibility”, “perhaps”, “must have” Why? Because life exists, therefore it must have evolved! That is the argument? It is the same argument for God…life exists, therefore He created it! Guess what?

    You believe something because YOU CHOOSE TO! Not because of facts! By the author’s own admission, this should not happen! (And I didn’t see where he mentioned oxygen and amino acids together or not together anywhere.) You have NO argument!

    Your argument is for variety within a species…NOT EVOLUTION! Evolution describes species turning into other species! Define your FAITH! This pot will call your kettle any color it wants to, when your case is irrelevant!

    @Vonne Anton

    Feeling a little testy lately, Vonne? Settle down, cowboy…(he says to himself, stroking the cat with the scar down its left eye, fingering a scalpel)….just kidding :-)

    BTW – for the sake of being pedantic…if you cannot say there is no God, then you are an agnostic, not an atheist.

    No one cares, but evolutionists beware…
    This “oxygen?/amino acids” is only quandary one, insufficiently addressed.
    Quandary 2: if the impossible happened and amino acids survived to reach organic soup ocean, would they clump together to form a protein molecule? No. See the author previously cited by one of your faithful, who states this is one chance in 1 – 190-something power against. He does not explain why…but I will…later, if necessary.
    There are more quandaries, and the ultimate result will be an event that has 1 in 1-40,000 power of a chance against occurring.
    Mathematicians consider anything over 1-50th power against to be impossible. We will be way into the unthinkable. If evolutions’ foundation is unthinkable, then what option will there be?
    To believe in God? How many of you are that courageous and honest?
    If you are not that courageous and honest, then suppose you shut up about how stupid religious people are and how smart you have to be to understand the science of evolution?
