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

    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.

    Not going to get into the Religion Rant again, except to say that ALL religions are Cults, some just have more members, and a better P.R. Budget!

    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.

    Hopefully someday we will mature as a species, The statement that we never will is sad, we have evolved as a species in many respects, we no longer believe it is right to own other people, women are no longer a sub class to men (mostly). I have to hope that someday our moral growth will catch up with out technological growth and we will become something better then the techno-barbarians we now are.

    Quandary: no oxygen for the amino acids to be fully formed…then magically oxygen pops into existence immediately to protect them. How can this happen? What process would cause it? Sounds to me like gullibility. And this is only one of many quandaries you will face. Please defend your faith._____________________________
    There was no oxygen at ground level. The first life on Earth was not oxygen based you can look this up very easily. Ozone high in the atmosphere had no effect on the life formed at ground level.

    @Redkaycei Repoc

    I suggest you read “A Short History of Nearly Everything” by Bill Bryson. He explains this very well.
