Just flicked through Grey Area again, is that a Ford KA I can see in the garage?! Guess it's a collectable antique by then. :D

For those disappointed in the print quality of the Dredd in Prog 1801 (and that includes me and everyone involved in the comic, believe me) here's a link to a pdf of that strip in much higher res!

...(particularly when he ventures into areas of theology about which he does not have the expertise

Theology? expertise? its just reading lots, making up stuff then arguing about the made up stuff! Kinda like us discussing the Dreddverse, what's cannon,the workings of Lawgivers and Justice Dept structures.


No more silly than discussing the number of angels dancing on a pinhead, is there a heaven/hell oh and my favourite is the earth is the centre of the solar system, a theological fact for generations.

Fully agree about his ability to 'put peoples backs up' as the say round here.

Theology? expertise? its just reading lots, making up stuff then arguing about the made up stuff!

Well of course it is.  But if you're going to attack the daft things people believe in specific detail, it helps if you actually know what it is they believe, and how your arguments have previously been addressed within that belief system. 

It's like someone coming on here saying "How can Judge Rico still be appearing in the comic, he was killed way back in Prog 30, can't you see that if you believe that then the whole Judge Dredd thing must be a load of made up twaddle?". We get annoyed because we know, and anyone who had done their homework would know, that it's a different Rico - and in the process have grounds to ignore and/or reject the sound important fact: that it's just made-up. 

It's a bad approach: religious nerds are still nerds, if you troll us do we not froth?

Fair enough, but does that mean one has to learn ALL about the Flying Spagetti Monster Creationism before I dismiss it as the ravings of some deluded inbred fishf*cker?

If you had been touched by his noodly appendages, you would know all there is to know.

No, you make a fair point.  I suppose I'm coming from a fairly narrow perspective where I've seen otherwise rational religious people take umbrage at Dawkins' manner and dismiss the rest of his generally irresistable logic as a result.  It seems incredible to me that anyone could read something straightforward like Greatest Show on Earth and come away with their faith undented, just because they think Dawkins doesn't really 'get' Aquinas, but I've met 'em. On theI have even been leant books designed to square christianity with evolution

See, this I don't really mind, as long as the context of explanations is explained.  Sometimes just-so stories are fun.  I always throw the kids the fantasy reasoning for everything geological and archaeological, and I even did it when I was lecturing: stories surrounding Fionn McCumhail's Griddle or Leaba Diarmuid agus Grainne can be just as interesting in what they say about cultural responses to monumentality within an agricultural landscape as any amount of waffle about gneissose schist capstone 2.5m x 0.75 x 1.5m cantered on paired imbricated sidestones, indicative of a communal but segmented society.  And so forth.
