I always kind of like comics, particularly the art in them, but just never seemed to be able to get into them.
Anyway, then a few years ago I came across White Ninja. I loved it, totally cracked me up and since then I’ve been reading a few web comics about the place.
So my favorites (ie I’ve read through all the archives of them) are:
So, what are your favorite web comics? Can you recommend any?
I usually save my political rants for Darkness At Noon but saint‘s comment on the previous post has provoked me to do so.
I’m really anxious that Clinton will beat Obama in the candidacy race. Obama really strikes me as a once in a generation leader who has an honesty and an integrity that the world really needs at the moment. He will disappoint me because of my high hopes, I know, but at least he has some passion and ideas. Clinton’s policies are largely identical but she is two things: (a) in bed with corporate America (the amount of money Obama has generated through “grass roots” donations certainly increases his desirability to me); and (b) she’ll just be another boring American president who maintains the status quo and nothing could be more disappointing.
I’ve never wanted to be an American but I really want to vote in this election.
Anyway, if I can’t convince you (especially you US voters) maybe Lawrence Lessig can:
And if he can’t, here’s that will.i.am thing saint mentioned:
Really, how could you go wrong with a gem like this.
No, everyone is born Christian. Only later in life do people choose to stray from Jesus and worship satan instead. Atheists have the greatest “cover” of all, they insist they believe in no god yet most polls done and the latest research indicates that they are actually a different sect of Muslims.
Or this gem:Gravity:
Doesn’t exist. If items of mass had any impact of others, then mountains should have people orbiting them. Or the space shuttle in space should have the astronauts orbiting it. Of course, that’s just the tip of the gravity myth. Think about it. Scientists want us to believe that the sun has a gravitation pull strong enough to keep a planet like neptune or pluto in orbit, but then it’s not strong enough to keep the moon in orbit? Why is that? What I believe is going on here is this: These objects in space have yet to receive mans touch, and thus have no sin to weigh them down. This isn’t the case for earth, where we see the impact of transfered sin to material objects. The more sin, the heavier something is.
Is Pluto a planet? Obviously this person needs to think through their argument again.
Then there’s this genius
There are a lot of things I have concluded to be wrong, without studying them in-depth. Evolution is one of them. The fact that I don’t know that much about it does not bother me in the least.
Rich with enlightenment thinking.
And while we’re on the topic:
[Replying to 'as for not seeing evolution it takes several million years... incase you missed that memo...']
several million years for a monkey to turn into a man. oh wait thats right. monkeys dont live several million years.
Flawless, how can you argue with that one Darwin!
Then, as if original texts mean anything:
If your original Hebrew disagrees with my original King James — your original Hebrew is wrong. If your original Hebrew agrees with my original King James, your original Hebrew is right.
As it’s the Midsummer festival at the moment:
Just recently my son Bobby came out to me. I had been worried for awhile. His teachers said most of his grades were slipping and he seemed depressed and withdrawn.
Bobby said he’d been hiding it for awhile because he was afraid I would reject him. I sat him down and told him that I loved him and that God loved him, but that his salvation was in danger if he did not resist his unnatural tempations. I told him how being gay would mean he would live a shorter life, and that if he couldnt change his orientation he could be celibate like most the ex-gays are. He started crying saying something along the lines of “I knew you wouldnt understand! You’re just like everyone else!” before running to his room and slamming the door.
What did I do wrong? I dont want to lose my son, but I fear I already have. I talked it over with his therapist, who had the ludicrous idea that homosexuality was unchangable and that trying to repress could lead to lots of psychological damage (I’ve dropped him and will try to be finding another therapist with more moral beliefs). I wouldnt be surprised if he’s the one who’s feeding my son all the homosexual propaganda about how its ‘ok’ to be gay. That, or how homosexuality has engulfed the media, making it seem ‘cool’ and ‘hip’ and how they were just another oppressed minority. You didnt have to worry about seeing two men making out on tv at my age! I dont want to sound like a fanatic, but Im worried what other effects will come out of this increasingly secular, immoral society obsessed with filth.
Am I too late? Or is it possible to save my son?
Ok, that one is really quite fucked up, possibly beyond being funny.
And finally, not sure what the implications for climate change are here:
One of the most basic laws in the universe is the Second Law of Thermodynamics. This states that as time goes by, entropy in an environment will increase. Evolution argues differently against a law that is accepted EVERYWHERE BY EVERYONE. Evolution says that we started out simple, and over time became more complex. That just isn’t possible: UNLESS there is a giant outside source of energy supplying the Earth with huge amounts of energy. If there were such a source, scientists would certainly know about it.
