Lesson before the fall?

I served in a church nursery this morning and some children and I worked on this exact jigsaw puzzle:

And the whole time we're putting together this fairly easy 100 piece puzzle I'm cracking up at the theological lesson not contained therein. Thank God I didn't have to teach them anything beyond let's do the edge pieces first.

Sorry for the extra late post I was needed at a bigger blog today. Not that that's any excuse.

And I was so busy thinking about my video blog for tomorrow I drove to the grocery store without my purse this afternoon. Must be the circadian rhythm thing.

BTW you have probably seen this but I love that teh internets allow an artist with this kind of talent and cleverness to get his artwork 1.5 million views in six days. Dang good.


  1. Its a lie. A lie I tell you.

    Rainbows weren't around at the beginning. They were introduced by the hippies in the nineteen sixties.


  2. In all seriousness my theology says everything in Genesis after the fog rolls in is a lie. That's why I'm glad I wasn't in a position to have to talk about it.

    Two points:

    1) Eve was kinda cute, and

    2) Really cool video.

    You could have told the kids that was Lilith.

    And I'm pretty sure the video(awesome as it is) is a viral marketting campaign for that sort of camera, and not a creative young artist expressing himself.

  5. I agree with scott on both points:

    The puzzle does seem to represent Lilith rather than Eve, but how many upright Christians even know who Lilith is?

    The video most likely is a viral ad, but it's still a good one!

  6. Ah, the Garden of Eden, where the tortoise lies down with the hippo, and all the critters are hot for Eve.

    Shiney happy people.

  8. The croc's nose is a phallic symbol...pointed right at Eve.

  9. I like how cheerful all the critters look about the fall of man from the grace of God.

    Also, this shows that while men may have evolved from other primate species, Archie, Veronica and the rest of the inhabitants of Riverdale definitely are descendants of Adam and Eve.

  10. Hey Blue Gal -- A little off topic here, but I saw this article in the Guardian and thought of you:

    "Activists send female underwear to Burmese embassies"

    Here's the article in the Guardian

  11. I like how cheerful all the critters look about the fall of man from the grace of God.

    :lol: I was thinking the same thing! And the snake hanging out with the rest of 'em...

    That animation was friggin' cool, a lot of work, and I hadn't seen it before. Thanks!

  12. What do you mean, the theological lesson not contained therein? Are you saying it didn't happen like that? I'm so confused. Maybe the gays are right and it IS Adam and Steve....


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
