Actually it's a dig at human nature. Sorry if you weren't insightful enough to understand your own post :)

I'd be willing to bet that for every religious post, there are 20 dickbag posts that aren't funny, yet get voted up solely because they attack religion.

I made the comic after discussing evolution with someone who thinks the world is 7,000 years old and that Noah really built an ark and a flood really happened. I'm 99% sure that I meant it as a reference to how RELIGION works. Believing the crazy things in the bible only makes you crazy if nobody believes you. So, it got me thinking about how the whole of religion is, and why the same crazy ideas are seen as dangerous and cult-like the fewer there are who believe in them.   
   
If it's human nature to act this way, then, yeah, sorry. I guess I'm too stupid to understand what I was trying to get across. I'm not exactly a social studies major.

See there's the problem--"someONE". A single person. You're passing judgment on all religious establishments based off of your one encounter.

And yes, you could apply this to religion, but then again you could apply it to just about anything. Trust me. If your intention was to make this a religious post, then you simply did not imply that well enough. Based off the simplicity of the drawings, the group interactions and the sheer fact that we have no idea what the people are even saying, the average person would immediately jump to "sociology" before "religion". That's bad conveyance on your part.

even if it is part of sociology that doesnt make it any less a part of religon and the comic is a dig at religon because of its origin, thats just simple. he made a comic on a sociological issue and applied it to religon. stop trying to appear more "insightful" jackass

I said the discussion lead me to think about religion as a whole. Not come up with things based solely on one conversation. I've had more than enough discussions with people who believe crazy religious things.

You take the comic how you want to take it. If you see it as a society thing, then judge it on that merit. I'm just glad you cared enough to take the time to comment on it. :-)

In terms of Noah's Ark, it is repeated in so many stories that I'm almost certain some dude did make an ark during some big regional flood and put all his livestock on it or something like that. Not too far-fetched.

Evolution and the world being 7000 years old on the other hand...
