    My favorite Oliphants are the ones with Heaven. Last December’s with Mark Twain was excellent, and still hangs on my wall. So many clever details in today’s and … God drinks coffee?!

    My theory of the expanding Universe is that it is God’s Cosmic Joke:

    It is a balloon that God blows into…it gets bigger and bigger … until He lets it go and … phhbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbbt

    I love the cherubs playing badminton. Could you hunt up that Mark Twain one for us, emptc12? I might have missed that one.

    Well, so long as the military industrial complex and halliburton keep their claws out of it, great humanitarian things may come to pass. We can choose peace!

    “…Non-existence is bliss…” That can be arranged. Just say that phrase three times the day after you die.

    Then you turn into a Higgs Boson.

    What is political about the Higgs boson?
    Honestly, some people see politics in their spaghetti.

    Why does that angel’s phone have a curly cord on it? No iPhone?

    Sorry, it wasn’t last December./

    The Twain cartoon appeared on January 6, 2011./

    My sense of passing time has sped up as I get older. Is it the middle of July, already?! 2012?!! I’m starting to feel like the Time Traveler in the H.G. Wells story./

    (A reading suggestion: THE TIME SHIPS, by Stephen Baxter. It’s a sequel to THE TIME MACHINE.)/

    An additional thought on this cartoon: Are God’s coffee jitters why the stars twinkle?/

    It’s interesting to read commentaries that appeared when certain religious denominations started./

    In his early 1950s book, FADS AND FALLACIES/ IN THE NAME OF SCIENCE, Martin Gardner wrote about Scientology and its founder, L. Ron Hubbard. /

    Mark Twain, in his book ROUGHING IT, wrote long sections about the Mormons. Brigham Young was still alive at the time, and Twain told an amusing joke about him and his wives. Also, some very dark, sinister things./

    As various sects and cults arose over the centuries, contemporary observors wrote of them. During the Reformation period, many that appeared have since become mainstream respectable, although they had strange things about them at first./

    It would be cool to read the nitty-gritty about the origins of Islam, Christianity, and the various Eastern faiths./

    Arthur C. Clarke, in CHILDHOOD’S END, wrote that the alien Overlords had visual recordings of human activities for thousands of years. He wrote that historians were especially eager to view the beginnings of various religions – and were invariably disappointed in the truth./
