I love this strip so hard that I want to post a gif of a unicorn farting little first-aid certified kittens that all run off and join the peace corps where they save tiny children that grow up to save dolphins that grow smart enough to save YET MORE UNICORNS AND KITTENS. That is how much I love this strip.
Also, I didn't read much into their hands. I just assumed that they were drawn to show a casual group that aren't all doing the same things.
Editor's note: my reply may be partially motivated by the fact that I just listened to Le Tigre's "New Kicks" in a fit of nostalgia, and am currently in an awesome mental bubble. Also, the wine that was left by relatives after my daughter's birthday party.

God may be many things, but a God of Entertainment He is not.

Adam + Eve ==> Love

They tell her to "dump him" ( why? No one knows )
Granted all are fictional and the story of Adam and Eve is fictious as well but just telling women "dump him" is hardly helping.

Yes, cravven, don't you know this is a request only forum? If you weren't asked to post, you cannot post. It's simply rude and uncouth.

God doesn't produce work for mass market appeal. No! He is an artiste! Entertainment is for the philistines.

Maybe because he blamed her for the apple thing? She blamed the snake in turn of course, but the association of women with the fall has done a lot of harm to women throughout history. (Some people used to think that giving women painkillers during pregnancy was wrong, as pain in child birth was Eve's punishment!)

Maybe in the Sinfest universe Adam was a jerk who told all his kids everything was their mother's fault and that men must never listen to their wives, as it will surely lead to folly. (There are actual people who still believe such nonsense and use it to argue against women in positions of authority).

Is it me, or is this strip poking fun at the Sisterhood a bit? Something about the way they automatically jump to the most biased conclusions about the puppet show they possibly can.

I was just thinking the other day that God and his Handpuppets hadn't been around in awhile. Good to see them again. Very Happy

The Son of Man's amusingly drawn. The peanut gallery's insisting that Eve dump Adam seems rash - given that this is _Adam and Eve,_ the human race would not have been perpetuated if she dumped Adam, but instead been a one-generational affair.

The youngest one certainly is. And yeah, I think that's part of the joke. I also think it's deliberate that the youngest one is the most knee-jerk.

I know a lot of very not knee-jerk feminists who have put a lot of scholarly, philosophical, and theological smarts into dissecting the problematic elements of the Adam and Eve narrative and how that has shaped (and been used as an excuse for) the western world's view of women in undeniable ways. Feminist critique of the Adam and Eve narrative is a thing, (and there are some fascinating things to read on the differences between modern standard interpretation, and the old Hebrew which does allow for much more in the way of equality.)

I'm involved with groups that are actively engaged with the intersection of feminism and religion, so seeing the Sisterhood interact with God here is candy. ♥

I don't know, judging from their relaxed positions I doubt they're taking God all that seriously, they seem like they're just throwing out sarcastic commentary to me.

By the way, I'm guessing they're telling God off because of the following:
