New Jack Chick Comic & Free Fire Zone

As everyone knows, Jack Chick, about whose work we’ve often posted, died on 23 October 2016 at the age of 92. Therefore, when we posted Jack Chick’s Last Comic? few months ago, we thought there would never be any others.

But now it seems that he had one more completed, and we just spotted it at his website: Almost Time. It’s not about creationism, and we found it to be unbelievably bad — possibly one of his worst — but it’s likely to be his last, so you might want to take a look.

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?

Because there’s no other news, we now declare this to be an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. Go ahead, unload some more about Trump. But don’t forget, we’re open for the discussion of pretty much anything — science, politics, economics, whatever — as long as it’s tasteful and interesting. Banter, babble, bicker, bluster, blubber, blather, blab, blurt, burble, boast — say what you will. But avoid flame-wars and beware of the profanity filters.

The comments are open, dear reader. Have at it!

  1. About the extinction of the mammoth …
    There have been several stories in Scientific American, New York Times, etc., about a study published March 2 in PLoS Genetics, blaming “genome deterioration” for the final extinction.
    I was wondering whether this would be the cause of some reaction by the YEC. For we have the taxonomic family of Elephantids on the Ark, a kind, represented by a single pair (they aren’t kosher), and then speciated by micro-evolution into African elephants, Asian elephants, and mammoths. But the mammoths eventually went extinct because there weren’t enough to support viable diversity of genomes. How can that all happen, how can there be enough variation in two individuals to make viable species, but not enough to support the species of mammoths?

    Note that that extinction is of the mammoths who survived on Wrangel island, several thousand years after the extinction of mammoths elsewhere across the northern hemisphere (whether or not by climate change, human action, or some combination of the two). The estimated population of mammoths there was 300, so this is likely just a simple case of small population size resulting in the accumulation of deleterious mutations.

  3. The Answers in Genies escape hatch for genome deterioration is that genomes of ancient organisms were magically more ‘diverse’ than modern genomes, and they had enough diversity to speciate properly. But the ‘diversity’ decayed for some just-so ad-hoc reason.

    I thought genomic decay was the result of the Fall? If so, it must have been underway for a couple of thousand years before the Ark.

  5. There is another “decay” which kicked in after the Flood, the lifetimes of men recorded in the Bible, which didn’t level off until after Abraham. I think that this can supply their Bible proof-texts for “genome decay”, in case that someone asks “how do you know, where you there?”

    Just finished reading “Big Daddy.” Apparently Mr. Chick doesn’t like nuclear physics any better than he does evolution.

    That makes sense. After all, nuclear physics is the basis for radioactive-decay dating methods, which consistently give results indicating an Earth much, much older than the 6,000 or so years favored by YECKs (the “K” is for “kooks”).

  7. Looks like Jack wrote a tract for every time the donations fall off
    Thoughtful of him!

  8. Dr. Janis I think that ‘the fall’ is their ultimate ad hoc excuse for everything, from why their religion exists, to why it is useful, and to establish theodicy.

    The new tract says that the nations of the world will unite against Israel because they want their land. But, I thought, Israel is tiny, is this plausible? A bit of Google tells me that Israel is bigger than Delaware, and very nearly the same size as Wales. Wales is a good comparison, because, like Israel, a lot of it is pretty much uninhabitable; mountains in Wales, the Negev in Israel. Jack should have stuck with the nations attacking Israel because the kingdoms of Satan hate God’s land and God’s people.

  10. @jimroberts
    When I checked, I was told that Israel is about 4 times the size of the US state of Delaware. Better try New Hampshire, which (I’m told) is about 15% larger than Israel.

    Poor Jack. Never woke up in heaven. Just plain never woke up.
