Right now, I’m working on a paper for a class I’m taking on the intertwined histories of science and religion. Well, when I say “right now,” I really mean an hour ago, and in the foreseeable future. For I’ve taken a break to read INTERNET COMICS!
Here are a few science-related comics I thought you might enjoy.
The first, from Hark, a vagrant, on Watson and Crick’s grand discovery, theft, and sexism:
The second, from Saturday Morning Breakfast Cereal, actually relates to my paper topic: how the Gaia hypothesis provided a scientific framework for the environmental movement (ecotheology in its extreme form), which it reframed in Judeo-Christian terms. That’s our man, James Lovelock, the guy who came up with the Gaia hypothesis, in the bottom panel.
Last is BANG!, a full-length comic book (viewable online for free) describing the science of the origins of the universe. In rhyme!
Enjoy these, and the weekend. Back to the grindstone…
