Patrick Chappatte is a Pakistani-born Swiss-Lebanese political cartoonist. After the Charlie Hebdo and November attacks in Paris, Chappatte was turned to for some political "humor." You can say a lot in a small amount of space.
Back in 2010, Patrick gave a TED talk about political cartoons.
You can find an archive of Patrick's work here, and you can now find his work regularly in the New York Times.
If we are honest - and scientists have to be - we must admit that religion is a jumble of false assertions, with no basis in reality. The very idea of God is a product of the human imagination. If religion is still being taught, it is by no means because its ideas still convince us, but simply because some of us want to keep the lower classes quiet.
