Bizarre New Jack Chick Comic

Jack Chick-Shame

This is another rare event, dear reader. We weren’t expecting anything more from Jack Chick, who recently had his 92nd birthday, but he surprised us. There’s yet another new comic at his website.

This one is titled What A Shame!, and it’s strange. Very strange. A girl named Cathy is confronted by her family who are all — gasp! — evolutionists.

They’re meeting with her because Cathy has become religious, and she wants to save them from the Lake of Fire. The pic above this post is from the beginning of that conflict, when the family has gathered together to change Cathy’s mind. We won’t tell you how it ends. You’ll have to read it for yourself.

If you haven’t yet seen any of Chick’s comics, you can read them online using the links in this post: Creationist Comic Books. They’re classics — especially Big Daddy? Even compared to ol’ Hambo, Chick is the purveyor of the most mindless, theologically primitive version of raw, young-Earth creationism that can be found anywhere.

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, but beware of the profanity filters.

Okay, we now throw open the comments to you, dear reader. Have at it!

  1. Good grief:
    Now we got Tom Wolfe

    Evolution, he argues, isn’t a “scientific hypothesis” because nobody’s seen it happen, there’s no observation that could falsify it, it yields no predictions and it doesn’t “illuminate hitherto unknown or baffling areas of science.”

    Here’s a Washington Post article reviewing Wolfe’s new book, The Kingdom of Speech…

    During the dark and stormy night, grandma choked to death on her pills. Her soul shot down to hell faster than lightning.

    All because of evolution – you get double hell for also thinking the big bang theory is true….

    This caught my attention as an architectural firm calling itself “The Intelligent Design Centre” was nominated for the Carbuncle Cup – the award for the ugliest building in the UK built in the last 12 months – for an addition onto a Church. All seems to fit somehow.

  3. About the review of Tom Wolfe. As far as predictions of evolution, I can imagine a creationist pooh-poohing the prediction of humans evolving in Africa. I would rather point out the ongoing predictions of evolution of resistance to antibiotics and pesticides.
    The latest from Chomsky, which I haven’t seen yet, is
    Robert C Berwick & Noam Chomsky
    Why Only Us: Language and Evolution
    MIT Press, 2015

  4. Please tell me that Jack Chick is really a great satirist, because if he is these comics are truly priceless!

    He is a satirist right?

  5. Tom Wolfe? Since when did he become a creationist?

    And who cares, anyway? He’s a writer, not a scientist–and not even a science-fiction writer, who these days would be expected to at least know some science.

    As for Noam Chomsky, pretty much the same applies. His views on the uniqueness of human language are well known, but are dismissed by actual scientists; he simply doesn’t have the background to be competent to address this issue.

  6. Well, there you have it. Jesus created hell, he made it as a place of eternal torment, anyone who doesn’t believe goes there by his direction, to be tortured forever. I make that out to be the vast majority of human beings alive and dead.

    And Chick worships this thing. Worships it!

    That’s not just weird. That’s evil.

    Wolfe’s been a known maroon for some while. No surprise that he’s being (a) such a maroon about biology and (b) an even greater maroon as to have the arrogance to think he knows more about biology than biologists do.

  8. A thread based on Jack T. Chick is more aptly called an intellect-free fire zone.

  9. I still have an old plaque I bought way back in 1960, shortly after Dad had moved us to SoCal. Of all places to find such as this, I found it at Knotts Berry Farm, an amusement park in SoCal, that I assume is still operating. I left SoCal back in 2000 and had not been to the park in many years.
    The plaque is titled “Why Worry?”
    Bear with me, this is a bit long.
    Why worry? There are only two reasons to worry about- either you are well or you are sick. If you are well, then there is nothing to worry about. But if you are sick, there are two things to worry about. Either you will get well or you will die. If you get well there is nothing to worry about. If you die there are only two things to worry about- either you will go to Heaven or Hell. If you go to Heaven there is nothing to worry about. But if you go to Hell, you’ll be so damn busy shaking hands with friends, you won’t have time to worry.
    Yeah, I was about 12/13 when I saw this and knew I had to buy it. I have kept it on a wall near my desk ever since.
    So, if Hell does exists (I seriously do NOT buy any sort of “after life”) I will be so damn busy shaking hands with my friends and late wife I won’t be worried in any way.
    Thanks for allowing a rather longish post from an old, broken down former machinist/ USMC Vietnam vet.

  10. What Me Worry came from Mad Magazine. It was old Alfred E Neumans way of thinking.
