The hot news today is that Jack Chick — the world’s greatest theologian, philosopher, illustrator, humanitarian, and creationist — is offering another new tract. M’god, the guy was born in April of 1924 — which means that in a couple of months he’ll be 89 years old — and he’s still cranking out new material!
If you’re not yet familiar with Chick’s creationist comics, you can read them online from the links in this post: Creationist Comic Books. The pic above this post is from one of them — Moving On Up! — about the fate of an evolutionist. If you haven’t yet seen those comics, you really should. They’re all classics — especially Big Daddy? Chick is the purveyor extraordinaire of the most mindless, theologically primitive version of raw, young-earth creationism that can be found anywhere.
His newest tract, which you can read free online, is Let’s Fly Away! It’s not about creationism but because it’s the product of an influential creationist, it’s worth reading in order to know what’s going on out there. This stuff has shaped the thinking of millions of creationists — perhaps most of them — for the last couple of generations.
The new tract is about a sweet little girl with a horrible family, going through horrible circumstances, who gets saved and then … we’ll spoil the ending by telling you that she suddenly dies. In Jack Chick’s way of thinking that’s a happy ending.
Pleasant dreams, dear reader.
