Web Comic Spotlight: The Atheist Pig

Christians call themselves sheep, which is convenient since, as atheists, we usually call them sheep too. Sometimes Christians call nonbelievers goats. Goats don't need shepherds, which is an improvement in my mind, but I'm starting to embrace identifying with The Atheist Pig.
The Atheist Pig is a webcomic featuring, you guessed it, an atheist pig who thinks deeply about the pointlessness of religion. He often converses with the above theist on the above log. Much like in Dog-matic & The Beagle, I feel like I should have a problem with an atheist setting up an imaginary theist to continuously win debates against, but I don't. These aren't cartoon debates, these are cartoon observations. If the kid on the log is a straw-man, he is at least a representative straw-man. I've had conversations identical to that of The Atheist Pig, and for this reason, it's worth checking out.


  1. Good stuff. I will have to check out that site. A good comic is always worth it. I am not too concerned about the potential straw is only a comic after all.

  2. I laughed pretty hard at that comic, guess I have something new for my feed reader

  3. Yes, I'm sure atheists would love it if God created them as robots, incapable of enjoying good (concepts like "good / bad," "right / wrong" wouldn't exist, or working against evil. They wouldn't mind missing out on love. Seriously?
