Jesus and Mo are too deep for the barmaid.

    Am I the only atheist who doesn’t find Jesus and Mo’ funny?

    If by deep you mean the escape velocity for ideas has exceeded the speed of smart, yes.

    Julian, I am not sure any web comic actually makes me laugh, but sometimes I smile. Mostly I just shake my head.

    @Julian. My guess: Yes.

    julian, no, I’ve heard from one other. (Not that he wrote to me to say he doesn’t find it funny; he mentioned it in passing.)

    You are a rarity though. :- )

    J&M may have a bit of a problem then – if the current cyclic universe theories are correct. It seems that the universe may not have had a beginning…….on the other hand there may have been a first exploding singularity, in which case women may have to cover their hair – or not! As a vegetarian, I’m always in favour of a universe without bacon.

    I’m not sure why she is lost. It iss fairly simple, actually: Something made the universe–here’s why, and that something was my imaginary friend, and since my imaginary friend created the universe, my imaginary friend gets to set the house rules, and the house rules my imaginary friend has decided on are this, that, and that other thing, etc.

    Heh. The barmaid knows that, but she also knows that the boys left out those intermediate steps. She doesn’t let them get away with that.

    (How do I know? I just do.)

    D’Oh! The rhetorical nature of the answer went over my head. Also, it is a little funny how in their eagerness they accidently betray that all the stuff in between, the stuff the bar maid wants them go through, is just cover for their arbitrary rules. It isn’t important why; it’s only important that you know who is boss, and “no bacon”, “no gay sex”, and “no women showing their hair” are how they make sure you know that they are the boss.

    Yep. It’s very droll really: argument from first cause therefore no bacon. Dogmatic pseudo-logical argument therefore arbitrary rule; sha-boom.
