Web Comic Biblenauts Explores Bible with Humor, Compassion
November 12, 2014
A friend of a friend of a friend started drawing a Web comic a couple of months ago. Biblenauts follows two time-traveling visitors through the stories of the Bible, starting with the first chapter.
The author isn’t exactly an orthodox believer—as his “About” page jokes, “The views and opinions expressed in this comic strip do not necessarily reflect the opinions of God or his affiliates”—but Biblenauts is occasionally both thoughtful and moving. Here, it contemplates the creation and destruction of the world and the meaning of free will, suffering, and mercy.
