The progressive editorial cartoon about the true history of god.

True Story, Bruh!

The famous Drake equation was created to mathematically estimate the number of active extraterrestrial civilizations in the universe but it makes no attempt to estimate how many might share our odd belief in the idea of god or gods. There's a good reason for this and here it is:

Human religious constructs are bat-shit crazy and are largely an invention of our unique primate brain structure that, deep inside, is still on the alert for predators sneaking up behind us millions of years after leaving Olduvai Gorge.

So when the Age of Man is over this peculiar notion of a Great Creator will wink out and never be seen again in the known universe. And should the ruins of the civilization left behind ever be sifted through by alien archeologists I'm pretty certain they'll think it was just as well.


The biggest problem I face with creating my 'toons is something I call "The Garfield Effect". I don't want to ever lapse into a "I-hate-Monday" or "Oh, boy! Lasagna!" rut which, sadly, many consumers of the daily funnies take great comfort in. Consider, as another example, Charlie Brown and his damned football gag.


So, yeah, I'm tromping on "sacred" grounds again but I hope in a way that offers a fresh perspective instead of simple campy comfort.


We're edging ever closer to Trump in irons and he's obviously getting scared. I, for one, would be sadly disappointed if he:

A: Succumbs to a coronary or

B: Flees the country.

C. Cops to a plea deal where he trades the presidency for freedom. (But I think Jack is going for the kill, so good luck with that, Fat Boy.)


In response to Marjorie "Barney Rubble" Greene's pornographic onslaught on the country yesterday I felt obliged to create the following:

For the record, the image of the mushroom was actually enlarged to make it visible to the human eye.

Have a great weekend!

The story of god
In the beginning there was no god. the big bang
Billions of years later there was still no god. Pangea.
Then, for a brief period, there was god. (Earth at nuclear war)
Eventually the universe died of heat death. The end.
