Arkas is one of the most famous comic strip artists in Greece and has been running for several years now strips of religious humour called collectively “Life Hereafter”, usually featuring a deceased man, an angel and a demon; hilarity ensues.
While I could have directly translated the strips I’ll be presenting, this is the closest I can come to offering glimpses of his humour in English without actually violating the artist’s right, since some of his work is already available in English for purchase. Enjoy!
– I’m trying to grasp what exactly the Trinity is. Is it one god in three, or three gods in one?
– Don’t strain yourself. The Trinity is incomprehensible to the human mind.
– It’s incomprehensible, because it’s ambiguous on purpose, as is most religious doctrine.
– That’s true. Religion loves ambiguity because it makes its job easier. A bit further down is a monument in honour of ambiguity.
There it is.
