Jack Chick & Intelligent Design Wallpaper

Does our title puzzle you, dear reader? Bear with us. The Curmudgeon never disappoints.

First, although Jack Chick died almost nine months ago, there’s another new comic offered at his website. The title is Sunk!, and you can read it on-line.

It begins with a man whose truck is swallowed by a sinkhole — while he’s not in it. Then there’s a totally chaotic, utterly incoherent romp through the bible, which persuades him to be saved. The thing is bound to change thousands of lives!

But that’s not all. As our title promised you, here’s the website for Intelligent Design Wallpaper, which proudly declares:

Every Handmade is a celebration of intelligent design, the full potential of the immortal hand and eye. This year, though, our ambitions are truly transcendent. We have charged designers and makers with tapping the long history of devotional fixtures and fittings, symbolic gateways to the godhead, or at least places that might encourage inner calm and communion. Welcome to our temple of divine design …

That’s all we can find so far, so we’re declaring an Intellectual Free Fire Zone. You wanna talk about Trump? Go ahead. 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.

    Looks like Jack Chick is speaking from beyond the grave. Aren’t good Christians supposed to kill, er, execute, er, slay people who have truck with spirits?

    Or maybe (so help me, I can’t resist) a new Chick has hatched.

  2. If these are the tracts that weren’t good enough to publish when he was alive we can expect to see some exceptional tracts indeed.

    I think the moral is “convert or God will start destroying your possessions.”

  4. From Jack Chick web site, “In 2016, Jack Chick went home to be with the Lord at age 92. But, not before he spent 16 years training David Daniels for this ministry, giving David many details and photos about Jack’s life and calling.”
    So yes a new chick has hatched.

    You can also buy the authorized biography, “You Don’t Know Jack” $7.95 (cheap!)

  5. Why is it that examples of things which are not designed are brought forward up in arguing for design?
    We are told that the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics is contrary to the existence of life. Doesn’t that mean that the Laws of Thermodynamics are not fine-tuned for life? What, then, is the origin of the Laws of Thermodynamics?
    Did they just make themselves by accident?
    I know that Intelligent Designers can do anything, but we are told that we have no argument from design for thermodynamics. Intelligent Designers seem to be able to make things which are not designed. OK, if they can do anything, then they don’t have to resort to design. But what is the argument for their being responsible for non-designed things?

  6. All the wallpaper proves is that if there is an ID involved don’t expect anything as complicated as a cell to be shown.

  7. Here’s a site with some Jack Chick parodies. “Big Daddy” is parodied as “Who’s Your Daddy”, in which all the errors are cleaned up.

  8. Sunk! is a most repulsive portrayal of what Darwin called a “damnable doctrine”; a remark in his diary that his widow tried to censor because surely no one still believed it. With extras; if a kid gets run over, say, God just have planned it. So believe in Him because it’s in your interests to do so
