    What do you mean by "if it was true?"...

    Boulet in a suit seems the least believable part of this comic. :) Although he looks rather dapper.

    Anonymous(1) It's the fucking argument I always get when I rant about astrology or homeopathy: there's always an idiot trying to sound wise and open-minded by saying something like "Well, we don't know EVERYTHING, now, do we?". I used that as a title because it was this sentence that gave me this idea. :)

    Reminds me of Discworld! Awesome. I am a chemist and I have issues trying to explain to people why homeopathy doesn't work. It's always like "well this herb is known to cure pain" to which I respond "if it did the active ingredient would be sold like paracetamol and the concentration would be in mg instead of 1x" at which time they say the industry is a conspiracy. At that point I have to stop myself.

    Reminds me of these British comedians: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HMGIbOGu8q0 Though they didn't have the "Rationalist witnesses." That's a great concept. That world's version of the "intelligent design" crowd, I take it, complete with trying to package their position in a way similar to the dominant world-view. (Making a "Book of Darwin")

    Very interesting! Time ago I've asked myself how the world would be if the Bible (and the events Expressed in it) and others concepts antonyms to the rational thought were the reality. It's nice discover That someone have put black on white this concept. Also, talking about Carl Sagan, I remember one of his aphorism: "We live in a society exquisitely dependent on science and technology, in which hardly anyone knows anything about science and technology." What about a society that has discovered in ancient times that the best way forward was not to limit scientific research and supports? Nothing religious powers, nothing dark age in the Middle Ages, no Inquisition, no Luddites, nothing of that stuff between Tesla, J.P Morgan and Con-Edison. How would be our century? A utopy? I doubt, although this alternative history can solve (maybe) the problems of OUR world, that world would have his, others, problems. Which? Why? Which can be the problems in a technocratic society? Which opposition could exist? The religious resistances continue to exist?

    This is very much like the book _Unquenchable Fire_ by Rachel Pollack: http://www.goodreads.com/book/show/832830.Unquenchable_Fire The story takes place on a near-future earth 50 or so years after "woo woo" crystals-and-auras spirituality becomes real. It's mostly about the day to day life of a woman who works in a sort of spiritual utility company maintenance department. A very interesting read, kind of non-science fiction.

    @ comment number 4 replying to comment number 1: I think you should write "if it were true" and not "if it was". But I am not a native speaker, I may be wrong.

    Mr. Boulet, this time you're wrong: Astrology works! In fact it works so good that my great-grandfather could make a living of it. My grand mother survived the Third Reich in Germany whilst having a jewish lover, by telling leading Nazis their fortune. Well of course, it's not about the stars, it's about psychology :) Not the 'future predicting' thing is the interesting part, but the 'presence predicting': the given insight into one's self, provided by a 'higher authority'. Curiously enough, for a lot of people it seems to be better acceptable when 'the stars' via the Astrologer tell them truenesses about their life, than their psychatrist.

    It is sort of funny you summon Phillip K. Dick, (of whom, I am a fan); Wikipedia says:"He often drew upon his own life experiences in addressing the nature of drug abuse, paranoia, schizophrenia, and transcendental experiences in novels such as A Scanner Darkly and VALIS.[1] L". He may have seen more than the rest. Keep up the Good Work.

    Only one quibble... the "rationalists" were all nutters, trying to produce proofs of the existence of god. Except for the one who got away, Kant, who showed that, nah, deduction doesn't work on reality, since reality isn't an axiomatic system. But, yeah, people do tend to think that "rationalist" means "person who relies on reason".

    "If it was true" : I think the correct title should be "if it were true". you don't mean past but conditional, right ?

    • Q : Who are you and what is this blog ?

      I’m Boulet, a french cartoonist living in Paris. I’ve had about 20 books published, most of them for young readers. I also worked on two books of the “Dungeon” series with Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar (available in English, ask at your local comic shop).
      This blog is an attempt to translate my french blog ” bouletcorp.com “. I started in 2004 and have drawn more than 1600 entries. I’m trying to catch up but it’s a huge undertaking!

    • Q : The translation are sometime awkward, how do you work ?

      The translation is a very delicate subject !

      Most of the translations were performed by followers of my french blog, but very few of them are native anglophones, so the accuracy varies a lot.

      I tried to find a professional translator but it turned out it was far too much expensive for me alone. So I offered to give an original artwork in exchange of amateur translations (like, for a month or so of comics to translate) but even then it was complicated because just the re-handwriting the texts and posting them alone took a lot of time, and having to do original artworks for it and posting them was a lot of work too. Anyway I can’t manage it like this either.

      So for this new version, I’m going to give it a try and translate all by myself.

    • Q : Can we help you to make it sound better ?

      That would be the idea !

      As you can see in this FAQ, I’m not so good in english ! So here’s what I have in mind: if you think you can make the translation sound better, just write your propositions in the comments, and I will gradually update the comics.

      The more comments and remarks I’ll get, the more I’ll be happy !

      Just be indulgent, I try my best, and translation is not my main job !

    • Q : I am french, but I fluently speak english, can I help anyway ?

      Yes you can, of course, but must tell I will pay more attention to native anglophone comments !

      I had a lot of people trying to translate, and each time, english or american people told me it was still awkward. French people tend to be overconfident with their level in english or at least, with their ability to translate a comic. It’s not just about being accurate, it’s also about making it soud good, you have to feel it, and that’s almost impossible if you are not english or american.

      The best help I could help would be from english or US cartoonists !

    • Q : I can’t translate, but is there anything else I can do to help ?

      Even if it’s written in english, it’s not easy to share this webcomic: in France I can rely on cartoonist friends or specialized reeferers to share, but it’s very difficult to make people discover my work in other countries !

      So if you want to help, it’s very easy: you can share with your friends ! If you have friends who don’t speak french, tell them about this page, and use social networks to share the comics you liked !

    • Q : How did you make this layout ?

      First, this blog was programmed with flash.

      But flash is a very heavy format, and very difficult to share. A few months ago, I decided to rebuild it whith a different platform. I discussed about this with Arnold on Twitter. He’s very good with WordPress, so I designed and he made this happen !


    • Q : Can I use the same layout for my blog ?

      WordPress is supposed to be a free-sharing platform, but we worked a lot on this, and we don’t specially want that anyone could use it without consulting us.

      The layout programming is Arnold’s, so you can ask him and he will be the only judge ! If he likes your work, I think he will be happy to authorize you to use this !

      His contact is at the bottom of the site, on the main page.

    • Q : Where can we buy your work ? Do you have a shop with posters, mugs or T-shirts ?

      For now, there’s not such a thing. I try to keep this the less “commercial” I can. But maybe I will change my mind some day !

      The only available work I have in english are the two books I drew for the serie “Dungeon” with Lewis Trondheim and Joann Sfar. Ask for it in any comic book shop ! The more you ask them to order it, the easiest will it get to obtain !
      If you want to have a better translation of this webcomic, you just have to harass US and UK publishers, till one of them agrees to publish it in english :)

    • Q : Can I use one of your comics to print a shirt / a poster / to put it on my blog / to illustrate my book / magazine ?

      No, you can’t ! :)
      All this comics ask a lot of time to draw, and I don’t want them to be taken out of this blog, especially if it’s for commercial use.
      And most of this blog material is already printed by the french publisher Delcourt, so it would be highly illegal !
      They are some exceptions, though:
      -You can use one panel or two if you are making a citation (for example: if you write an article about my work or about webcomics in general, you can show a couple of pictures, without asking me. You just have to put the source under it: my name and the blog’s URL, clikable if your article is on internet. You don’t specially have to tell me, but it would be nice)
      -If you want to share a story on internet, the way I like better is one panel, clikable, redirecting to my original blog.
      -You can use a comic or more for pedagogic use if it’s a non-commercial use: if you’re a teacher and you need a printing from the blog for your class, if you’re a student and need an illustration for an essay or your thesis, I’m totally ok if you respect these two conditions: you have to ask me FIRST (because I wouldn’t like to illustrate something I totally disagree with), and the use must be completely NON-COMMERCIAL (you CAN’T sell it, no matter the format), NON-POLITIC (especially if you are a kind of nationalist NRA douchebag) and NON-RELIGIOUS (I’m an atheist, and I work for no church or cult)

    • Q : Can I buy you an original artwork ?

      I don’t really need mone for now, so I don’t sell my original works… So no !
      And I have a lot of work waiting to be done, so I don’t have time to make special drawings for birthdays, christmas presents or stuff like that !

    • Q : I’m very rich and I want to hire you / I want to publish your work

      Ok, send me an email and we’ll see ! :)
      I’m not specially looking for work now, but if you have something nice to propose, maybe we can find an arrangement !
      If you want to publish material from this blog, my publisher shares the copyrights with me, so you have to contact him ! look for “editions Delcourt” on the web !
