Cute, if only explanations were so simple. Now marry the two and come back with the outcome.

wouldn't the atheist be saying "There are no puzzles!"?.......

If atheists were to take that tone we'd crack comments about bigfoot, the lochness and a free press. Instead all we have to do is repeat back what you say.

You're Never Alone With A Schizophrenic!
As our understanding has progressed, the god of the gaps, man's use of god to explain that that we didn't understand, has shrunk to an irrelevancy, so that the only ground it has left to stand on is some obscurum per obscurius explanation as god as a 'first cause'. This is the box lid in this analogy. God used to be able to explain almost everything. Pregnancy was explained by Boreas, god of the north wind. Storms were attributed to Zeus. What a retreat god has made since those days.
God is not the explanation you are looking for PostmodernProphet. God isn't the best explanation, it isn't even a credible explanation. It asks far more questions than it answers.
But I imagine that god's other guise, god the comforter, is your crutch and, like relinquishing a prescription painkiller habit, it isn't easy to get past that. You have to want to come off god because rehabilition can be emotionally draining and you need to have the courage to accept the nihilistic reality of existence and overcome it. Only then you will see life in its true technicolour glory.
There is help available if you need it.

TGPTD, thank you for this cartoon strip. I was looking for a way to teach my toddler the lesson of the obstinacy of faith, and I couldn't have presented it in any better way.
You have been around since 06, similar to myself. Did you have another name?
