I Read The Whole Bible

This week’s Dustinland is not an attempt to sum up the entire bible in six panels, but you know, it does give you a nice little primer. A lot of people like to pretend they have tried to read the bible but most people get bored within the first 50 pages. You just need to really go for it. Make an effort. I just read a little every night before I went to sleep. Why? Well, I’m not a religious man, but it is a pretty important book. Considering how many people base a good percentage of their decisions on it, it’s kinda nice to understand it a bit better. Take the death penalty. Some people say “oh, well how can you be religious and support the death penalty?!” Well, read the bible. There’s PLENTY of righteous killing going on in there. Overall though, if there was any part of the bible I’d recommend, it would be Proverbs. It’s just pretty mellow. A cool list of knowledge, broken down in little bits. Almost kinda Eastern if you will, but without the crazy puzzles. Good times.

The Rapture

I have the sniffles right now so I won’t get too into it but yeah, this week’s Dustinland is all about how some people thought the world was going to end this past weekend but it didn’t. I think some pastor somewhere figured this out and either got his math wrong or was lying the whole time. They did spend a lot of money though putting up billboards and driving trucks around warning everyone, even here in NY where everyone is evil. I guess what was supposed to happen was that all the good people would vanish and go to heaven and the rest of us would be stuck here to be all sad and what not until the world ends a few months from now. But that doesn’t seem to be the case. Instead, we all get to stay here and wait for the world to slowly end over a much longer yet probably more depressing amount of time. There’s a little Doomsday Dusty for you to start your week.
