Or a few hours, depending on how much “faster than light” you are going, and the real distance between the two planets – say that earth2 is in the exact same orbit as earth 1, but on the far side of the sun – which actually was a film made back in the 70’s, BTW (Journey to Far Side of the Sun) – so we know that it take 8 minutes for the light of the Sun to reach the earth, and the same then for earth two, so sixteen minutes – however, you can’t fly directly there, you have to go around the sun, and you don’t want to go too close to the sun, for various reasons, so let’s say you take a point further along the Earth orbital path, let’s call that another 8 minutes, then stop and tack towards the new earth – well what do you know, still under an hour….

Odd how few people read further, past the giving of the first ten - there were a total of 613 given, if you take the time to go on a few chapters. All nicely detailed, do’s and dont’s, and lots of smiting and nasty stuff. Of course, since most people can’t seem to carry out the first ten at all, is it a wonder they prefer to ignore the rest or pretend they don’t exist?
Heck, most people can’t even keep the first and second commandment. Ah, well, I guess that’s the problem with this sort of thing.
Of course, I suppose if you use the excuse that these commandments were strictly between God and those of the People of the Covenant, and anyone from any other faith or lack thereof doesn’t have to pay attention to any of them, which would let most supposedly God-fearing Christian I know off the hook, but then, what rules of conduct do they then hold true at all?

kreole - did you ever cut up a chicken dinner? Where on earth do you come up with birds have one breast? Two pectoral muscles, just like most other creatures. And if you mean boobs, birds don’t have any - it’s a mammalian feature, something birds ain’t…. But this being Shoe, our winged friends are somehow a bit of a cross-breed, like the Egyptian gods, at least as far as artwork is concerned… well, that’s comics for you - its for the birds….
Nab, please site relevant sources when making such accusations.

Seems to me there are lots of Math Atheists currently in the state legislatures and in Congress.
You make a major error by calling maths a dead language with rigid rules - in fact ( I have this from my uncle, who taught post doctoral mathematics for forty years at Lehigh) maths is constantly evolving, changing, exploring, the grammar is flexible and under constant growth.
Maybe you need to go back and re-examine some other assumptions you make given this misunderstanding about maths.
Well, today’s strip certainly should be brought up to the anti-evolutionists - it is the final proof they need to show that science is just another religion. ;-)
There are those who might argue (rightly) that religious differences are one of the primary causes of war. Perhaps doing away with all religion, starting with Christianity, might be one way to bring about peace (ducking and running from all the committed God-botherers in the audience) (in all defence of that statement, historically, there has been more war in the last 2000 years fought by Christians against either other Christian sects or or non-Christian peoples than from any other religion, and some of the atrocities carried out by those purported Christians (I seriously question their beliefs) have had repercussions that have lasted to this day, such as the spawning of radical Muslim Fundamentalism, or Jihadism, which was direct response to the atrocities carried out by by Christian Crusaders).
In all seriousness, though, it behoves those of purported deep faith, whichever they follow, to examine their attitudes to those who do not share it and discover if they do not in fact harbour violence in their hearts as well due to that belief. True Christians would never pick up a gun and attack another person, no matter what - it is not what Christ taught, plain and simple. And despite the origins of Islam and the Jihads of the Prophet himself, the teachings today are clear about pacifism and tolerance, and those who do not follow that do a disservice to their faith. Buddhists, of course, are perfect, but then, what else would you expect ;-)?
Tum-de-tum-tum… should I give the pot another stir?
I’ve always wondered why the leaders don’t fight it out amongst themselves rather than getting other people to do it for them.
If Hitler wanted to take Poland, why didn’t he challenge the Polish leadership to a one on one (to the death, of course) - and see it that did it.
It is easy to send other people to their death, it is hard to send yourself.
Of course, that is an idealistic and naive solution, but then again, so is Calvin’s question. Either way, war is never right, ever. As we see in the Middle East today, people are only ruled so long as they continue to recognise and allow themselves to be ruled - when they stop, the ruler will fall. There will be martyrs along the way, but it invariably does happen. Hence, there is never reason to obey a madman, no matter how much (temporary) power he has. And no soldier need ever attack a foreign land, but rather protect his own and the people he serves.
Give it a rest, will you, please?
