For help on how to follow a comic title,
Debate? What debate? That was a grovel…
OK, I’ve a question for them to debate: When was the last time that the Republican Party did anything whatsoever positive for the United States and the American people? When? Will they ever do anything at all positive in the future?
No doubt Susie set him up again.
OK, sure, a billion times zero (0) is what…
There are a lot of smelly diapers, too…
OK, then why bother praying? It’s a fact that nothing fails like prayer.
Susie is ALL woman. Calvin doesn’t stand a chance. The only question is if Calvin will ever realize that.
The Mona Lisa, or a photocopy of the Mona Lisa. Which?
It’s really very simple, you know. First of all, being skeptical takes substantially more actual mental energy than simply believing. Thus, as we’ve all been made painfully aware, logic, truth, and empirical reality are the sworn enemies of believers of all sorts, most notably the mentally lazy or deficient MAGA/Q types.
What’s more, actual facts are FAR too limiting, and no fun besides. People just want to be “free” to believe what suits them and what they want to believe (including religion). Lies totally offer that. Unshackled as they are from truth and reality, lies can be crafted to perfectly satisfy the needs and wishes of any target audience. Freedumb! Truth (and science), which can never honestly claim to be 100% correct, seems to want to force people to accept the unacceptable, be it political reality, or the reality about their religious whimsies, or the truth about themselves. There’s always going to be a significant percentage of people who, even though they know perfectly well that what they’ve accepted are lies, will very much prefer those sweet, reassuring, and vindicating lies to the hard, uncaring truth.
Moreover, many people really appreciate liars and their lies. That’s because the liar has shown enough regard for the sucker and the sucker’s preferences to craft a lie that will be appreciated and accepted. Telling the truth is just lazy and rude, and skeptics just ruin the fun. In any case, as Darth Putin has pointed out, “We didn’t do this propaganda to make you believe something, it was to make you believe nothing. Then you will do nothing.”
God doesn’t accept prayer, either, but a lot of people think He does, and the Bible thumpers flog the idea along with sending them money.
