7. Childish, silly, misses the point, not even as funny as Big Poo Generator

 

Not only are philosophy and religion not looking for the same thing, they have little interest in what the other is looking for. And the different religions are engaged in different tasks, quite unlike each other.

8. Oh really?

You may notice that theology and religion are not the same thing.

Also, I'd be interested to know what you think philosophy is looking for...

9. It could be easily demonstrated that by virtue of your comment here...

 

You completely missed the point of the graphic.

The point of the graphic isn't that philosophy, metaphysics, and theology are all looking for the same thing nor is it that any of the three disciplines care what the other is doing.

The point is demonstrating, in simplified terms, how each discipline carries out their inquiries.

12. Well, no, science is more like turning on the light on the porch

And not noticing that everybody inside the house is still stumbling around in the dark. (But occasionally bumping their shins on interesting unidentified objects.)

11. That's comedy gold. Just one little point: Theology is more about the

wonderful black cat that was there last week but isn't there now.
