Closing out our religion coverage for the week, there is an interesting series of cartoons from Jordan Collver at Nautilus, on why people do or don’t “believe in” evolution. Here’s one panel:
The girl at middle left seems to be a fan of Berra’s Blunder (describing the outcome of alleged unintelligent natural processes by citing as examples the known product of explicit design). But the blunder is accepted in science literature today.
The guy at middle right seems to believe that he can put his faith in “Jesus” and just accept the fully naturalist atheism on which “evolution,” as understood in most media today, is grounded. Most science journals would make short work of his “Jesus” as a mere construct of an evolving brain. But then, if he is fully post-modern, he may see the situation that way too and think it’s okay.
Cartoons? Come to think of it, Dilbert’s creator, Scott Adams, was a notorious doubter of Darwinian dogma, possibly because Dilbert, Wally and the Pointy-Haired boss didn’t just somehow evolve…
