    So now the Leftist fervor at losing an election is invoking religious condemnation of the winner?Understandable, I suppose, since they have no substantial argument.

    We have politicians the play the “Jesus Card” and yet they don’t see it as talking the name of the Lord in vain. But their Bibles do not contain the quote, “Render unto Caesar, the things that are Caesar’s and render unto God the things that are God’s.” which pretty much sums up JC’s stand on separation of church and state.

    Even thought this was really a TDS based comic, it has become a treatise on Christianity. I would add that for any and all it’s faults, Christianity turned millennia of dark ages after the fall on Rome into just a few hundred years.

    Most of the comments above concerning Brother Danizier’s Christian myth comment are a reflection of the Christian problem. The Apostle Paul teaches a rather simplistic course of Christian understanding and then reaps a whirlwind of heresy. One church came away believing that since grace removes sin, they can sin, sin, sin and sin some more and get grace, grace, grace and more grace without making any changes to their lives. Another church, the Galatians, doesn’t seem to have understood that they were meant to grow in their faith, but keep on in just ‘belief in Jesus’ for salvation alone, when that’s probably just what Paul taught them. Jesus clearly teaches that is disciples are to be work minded in their faith (why do you call me Lord, Lord, and not DO the things I say) and James the Elder in his epistle makes it clear that faith and works go hand in hand. Yes, there have been many misinterpretations of Jesus’ teachings, even by the most revered Paul . This gives us something to work on. Like our nation, USA, we are a work in progress.

    The words “collusion”, “hoax”, “wrap up” and “investigation” spoken by a snake have yet to elicit a single Trump comment. Today’s ’toon should be called The Hand of Mueller.

    Just remember folks, it’s ALL A WORK OF FICTION!! NO garden of Eden, NO Adam and Eve, NO serpent, NO apple…just a collection of folk tales and stories told around the campfires by a bunch of Bronze Age goat herders and collected over Hundreds of years into the most heavily edited, abridged, changed, re-written and otherwise fiddled with “Book of Unchanging truths” EVER foisted on a bunch of illiterate peasants.

    Whereas I do not believe in a literal translation or mistranslation of the bible I don’t think anyone can argue against the good of the Ten Commandments.

    If you were the omnipotent one what enjoyment would you have if there wasn’t anyone to admire your divinity? It would be kinda boring don’t you think? So, I believe we were created to please and amuse the Almighty and he created temptation and free will so He could see true admiration from His created ones – that’s where the sacrifice fits in as a sign of love. You probably think that sucks for the sacrificial lambs and it does for a time on earth but they will be rewarded in the spiritual plane of heaven.

    You have the free will to reject my beliefs but ponder me this: if the earth is billions of years old or even just 10 million years old, that means the earth has orbited the sun 10 million times and without orbital decay that should have plunged us into the Sun. If you ask me I’d say that’s part of the creation miracle. The other part is spiriting electrons around protons and neutrons in such a way to form DNA molecules in cells in a primordial ooze from which we derived. Oh, and this after a huge (Trump-like) explosion that to this day no one has explained to me who lit that fuse.

    Lastly, (because I haven’t convinced you yet) ponder this for practicality: if our leaders believe there is a Higher Power that they will have to answer to in the end, maybe they’ll try to be more moral in their stewardship. On second thought, they’re politicians with free will – corruption of power is a likely as Captain Eddy telling a fanciful tale.

    There are thousands,of creation myths in the world. millions believe in them word for word, others are aware that they are metaphors. They vary in substantial ways. To be entertained and enlightened, read some of them. For example, the Hopis say that mankind emerged from the third world to this, the fourth world, through a hole in the ground. I have seen this hole. It’s just as inspiring as, say, a Christmas Crèche, or the Buddha’s tree.

    I got stuck at the fruit. If it’s fruit, what’s it there for if not to eat, setting aside the metaphor of what the tree is and what the fruit is? “Here’s something enticing I made, but don’t touch it.” You lost me there.

    Do you really not see how your arguments are exactly like the arguments that Satan used in the garden? He maligned God’s character by misquoting Him. “Is it true you can’t eat of ANY of the fruit in the garden?” You misquote and accuse Him of withholding ALL knowledge. It was only the knowledge of good and evil that He chose as the one test of whether they would trust Him or not after He lovingly provided them with everything they needed. Their partaking of the fruit was exactly like a 3 year old who has hundreds of toys at home, but throws a monumental tantrum in the grocery store when mom refuses to buy them whatever trinket of a toy the child’s fixates on. He wants it just because he wants it. There wasn’t anything magical or chemical about the fruit that would unlock some hidden part of their memory or understanding that God wanted to withhold from them. It was the realization of what they had done that was the “knowledge of good and evil.” “We took all that love, care, and concern that He has shown us …. and spat on it.”

    We create gods as and when we think we need them. Just think how many gods there have been in human history that have been forgotten.

    The liberal anti-Jesus myth: We think we are more intelligent than the one who created life. We can’t explain how this all came to be, but acknowledging our ignorance is humiliating, so we will discourage all those who do not share our egotism.

    Well written, but there is still some wisdom in the story. It describes an important step in the evolution of man. And getting knowledge was not only good (to help survive), but had its downsides: the thinking, the musing, the speculation, the doubt. And the guilt. To mitigate the doubting, you need the religion, and to mitigate the guilt, you need some special story, which does not necessarily need to be logical, but complex, confusing and soothing.

    Not much different that any other myth. the Norse had the gods licking a cow to come to being, I’m sure somewhere people thought we were on four elephants standing on a giant turtle, maybe some goddess just spat out the universe in some cosmic birth! All in the end it comes down to faith.God, Allah, Buddah or in your case, nothing. SO in the end, please, try to be more accepting of the faiths around you. Maybe people will be willing to talk to you in person and hear then share an agument with your ideas. Also No, I have no true faith except in Nature and Life. But I do recognize a dark path and I would like to take it from you. Been there, done that, Got the battle scars already. Just offering you a second look at things. Harmony.
