This is amazing, dear reader. Jack Chick was born in 1924. He’ll be 92 this year, and he’s still cranking out his unique material. His output has been slowing down in recent years, his “newsletter” hasn’t been updated for months, and one never knows when his last comic will appear. So we cheer whenever we see a new one.
It’s impossible to overstate the importance of Jack Chick. Kent Hovind cites him as an authority, and Chick cites Hovind. If you haven’t yet seen his comics, you can read them online using the links in this post: Creationist Comic Books. They’re classics — especially Big Daddy?
Chick’s new release is Keep The Secret. It’s about that mean ol’ devil, as he works to deceive us. The devil focuses his attention on a boy named Joe, who grows up to be an unbeliever.
There’s very little creationism in this one, but there are a few frames where Joe’s misguided teacher bans the bible from class, and where a professor tells him: “Life started millions of years ago completely by accident, in a universe what was smaller than a baseball.” The devil’s helpers discuss the situation, and one says to another: “Joe trusted evolution, not God, and became a jobless party animal!”
Ooooooooooooooh — how horrible! But that’s what evolution will do. As the comic goes on, we see that Joe’s mother is saved, and she tries to save Joe. What happens? We don’t want to spoil the suspense. You’ll have to read it for yourself.
As we’ve done before with posts about Jack Chick, we’re declaring this to be an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. Talk about whatever you think is interesting — science, politics, philosophy, etc. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But beware of the profanity filters.
We now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it!
