    They should have prayed to Offler the Crocodile god instead. He may be mad that they got his name wrong… Any fellow Discworldians will know what I’m talking about.

    How do you convert a believer in the god of the crocs into an atheist? Seven Darts! The exciting new game being played by young zebras everywhere! Yes, kids, you too can blast Bob’s behind! It’s a New World Order!

    Kinda funny seeing someone hope that “religious nuts” will attack this so they can be mocked. Oh well, I expect somebody will oblige. On the other hand, if Stephan makes one of the dumbest characters in the strip an atheist, what is he really saying?

    They should know better, god can’t take away anyone elses freedom of choice. To do so is against his plan of free agency. Some people think god is going to do everything for them.

    Of course, if there was a crocodile, he’d hate these guys and keep the darts coming.

    an atheist in a comic strip!! wow… now send him to college to study philosophy….

    “In the world without birth control — a world that existed for millennia, in case anyone has forgotten — people tended to be more careful about who they slept with.”

    lol.. yeah.. sure.. a world were you exposed your kid upon birth if you didn’t want her.. or it was taken and sold into slavery… or just grew up as a “bastard”

    Well, I think God of Crocs actually answered his prayers… Burt prays “Dis Bob and Burt”, “someone shoot us”. I think both those requests were pretty darn-well answered!

    When a prayer is made for a specific request and that request is not honored does not mean that God did not answer the prayer. His plans may not be our plans. Are we not to pray for acceptance of His will for us?

    I can see how you might feel that way. I used to feel that way, until certain experiences led me to most undoubtedly believe otherwise. Now, His plans are the first priority in my life. The change He’s worked in me, and so many people who’ve become my family, is bsolutely amazing. Don’t knock it until you see what it can do.

    Somebody may respond with something about the horrible things they say religion has done, like the Crusades and the Spanish Inquisition. Those events happened when people put aside the actual teachings of their faith and just used the name of their faith to justify terrible crimes. Jesus taught that people should love their neighbors and pray for their enemies. People who kill in the name of Christianity are not following the teachings of Christianity. Respond as you will.

    No, that’s just a reference to my agricultural background, which has resulted in a strong dislike of cattle. However, your comment made me laugh. Thanks for that.

    Also, I don’t know of anyone actally cow-tipping. They sleep laying down, in my experience, which would make it difficult.
