    I’ll start by admitting that I’ve read no other comments; so this is a response directed only to today’s strip:

    There are those of us, many of whom you might otherwise suspect of possessing above average intelligence if you were to meet us in casual circumstances, who believe it is entirely possible that the Earth is between 5000 and 6000 years old.

    I would venture to guess that the majority of individuals who share this distinction (myself included) would enthusiastically agree that not everything one can read on the Internet is true.

    What a marvelous world it is that contains such diversity of thought.

    Keep it coming, Stephan. Your strip is one of the great joys of my day.

    Isn’t obvious? Haven’t you heard? Gender assignment is oppressive. The baby should be able to choose for itself.

    You guys seem to be enjoying this so much I haven’t the heart to say what I wanted to say about this cartoon.

    However, this thread is an interesting commentary unto itself when one considers that the audience is infinitely more funny than today’s panel.

    @Overtaxed.
    No.
    Up to this point, I haven’t expressed a belief. But, since you’re asking…
    I believe that my own opinion splayed out in a comment thread on a comic strip web page is of roughly the same value as the average lottery ticket.
    I believe that there is an entire class of people (on either side of any argument) who define their existence by being offended. Their rehearsed but ill-conceived gainsaying of rehearsed but ill-conceived rhetoric is as the bleating of sheep in a room full of those who would otherwise carry on an intelligent conversation.

    I believe that great advancements can be made in the wake of a frank exchange of views and I wouldn’t stifle that for the world.

    I also believe that you have essentially proven my point and that I will henceforth heed my own advice and save my opinions for a forum in which civilized and gentlemanly discourse can occur.

    Hey, I love you guys on this thread. What a joy!
    The strip mentions “Evolve” and nobody’s trying to start an argument about Liberals or Creationists or anything.

    To quote from Ratatouille, “If you learn to muscle your way through the gag reflex, all kinds of food possibilities open up for you.”

    I’d like to make a shout out to those of you who restrict your remarks to amusing, friendly comments about the daily strip. You’re an encouragement to all the readers who view comics as [mostly] for fun.
    I’m frankly not certain I can glean the author/artist’s political views from reading his work and I’m glad. I’ve got plenty of opinions about the Environment, Economy, and society in general; I just don’t for a moment expect that I’m going persuade someone with an opposing view to come around to my way of thinking by posting a couple of sentences worth of arrogant, sarcastic, or just plain mean rhetoric.
    If you don’t like the strip or what it appears to stand for, why not just stop reading it. If you love the strip because it you think it illustrates the stupidity of the people you love to hate, why not just smile a satisfied smile and forward the link to someone you know will get the same level of enjoyment out of it.
    The rest is, as @Gresch put it, just ‘shellfish’.

    I’ve never read/seen a better illustration of the core philosophy that drives liberal thinking.

    I like deciding where to contribute my discretionary income. Please don’t take away portions of my salary to fund your personal interests Mr Trekman58.

    PBS stands for Public Broadcasting System. You’re welcome to contribute all you want to ensure it stays on the air.

    Stephan,
    Thanks for remaining non-partisan. There’s plenty to poke fun of on either side.

    I’m thinking we need Obama to step in with a government bail out.
    I used to be so generous; always giving to worthy charities. But now, nearly half of my middle-class income is being taken and given away by those who know better than I who deserves it and who doesn’t. I’m afraid I can no longer afford to support the things I care about, like this strip.
