Happy Holidays!

And, after this gratuitous attack on Christianity and wholesome values, Flea Snobbery goes challenge Santa Claus to prove he exists by bringing more and better jokes for next year. See you all again in January!

Moral

Moral

"Do you always have to flaunt your ignorance with those arguments? Amalek attacked Israel when they were at their weakest! God ordered his destruction to protect his people!

"Ha! You can't answer to that, eh?"

"No. I was thinking how come whenever you try to convince me of your superior morality, you end up two minutes later justifying some genocide. Funny, isn't it?"

"It's no use. None so blind as those who won't see."

Theology

Theology

Atheists keep demanding evidence for God's existence. They don't understand that, were He ever to give unambiguous signs, then He would undermine free will, for there would be no choice but to believe and worship Him. God has therefore decided, in His infinite wisdom, that Faith be the only way to know Him—

"God has manifested Himself in all His glory!"

"Oh, thank You, Lord! Now I can do something productive with my life."

"Today is the fifth day of the news drought. News have been conspicuously absent from television the whole week, sweeping all the other topics out of the screen."

"What are the causes of this? Who benefits? And, more disquietingly, how long will it last? Today's edition will be devoted in its entirety to this pressing issue."

Research paper

Positive results in a qualitative meta-analysis of complementary and alternative medicine
Dr. Karl Heiligenschein, M.D.

Abstract
Traditional scientific lore in academia holds that complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) has no proven clinical effectiveness beyond placebo. The present paper examines the available sources of information and arrives to the conclusion that such claims have no basis in reality.

Two years!

That's right, ladies and gentlemen: it's two years since Flea Snobbery had the idea of existing. So much has happened along the way; I can barely believe that humble, unpromising cartoon about cyanobacteria spawned this humble, unpromising blog about a variety of topics.

As a celebration, there will be no cartoon today. There will be something else.

Go ahead, choose the something else that fits you best:
Yes! Now you can use Flea Snobbery to decorate your screen, take it whenever you go, and proudly maximize your windows to hide your desktop whenever someone walks by. Enjoy it!
