I had some fun with the ol pope in this week’s comic, but really, I do think it’s kind of weird he’s retiring. I mean, how can you retire from being the word of God? It really just makes it seem like any old job. I’m curious as to what you do as a retired pope. Is he going to wander around Florida, wearing a jacket in the summer, complaining about how none of his cardinals call or visit anymore? Maybe I’ll save that for another comic.
This week’s Dustinland is either about God or about everything. If you believe in the existence of a God or multiple Gods who are responsible for creating everything, then it is kinda funny to think about how they made some awesome stuff that rules, as well as some stuff that really sucks. Either funny or frustrating and/or terrifying. And if you don’t believe there’s any sort of higher power that created the universe and all the stuff in it (spoons, grass, horses, whorses etc…), then it’s fun to think of this as the ultimate Top 10—and Bottom 10—list.
Some atheists also like to make fun of religious folks. That’s not something I want to get into here. Just the mere discussion about discussing it is too long and boring (Redditors, you know what I’m talking about here). So yeah, good times. Comics. Jokes.
PS If there is a God and he is not happy with this comic, I’m really, really, really sorry. Just let me know and I will atone in whatever way you wish. I guess it depends which religion is correct. I might have to sacrifice an animal, or maybe just say I’m sorry, or maybe not eat anything for a few days. Or someone might have to throw rocks at me until I die. I really hope that’s not the case. Maybe there’s just one God for all the religions and he (if God is a she there wouldn’t be so many aggro douche bags around) tolerates everyone being totally wrong since he’s just a cool guy who chills out on a cloud. Okay I’ll stop now.
