Dear God, is Oil a Blessing or a Curse?

By calling on Oklahomans to pray for oil, Governor Mary Fallin has stretched the limits of my patience and perhaps a little bit of my better judgment. Governor Fallin would have us all believe that it’s been a really tough year for the oil industry. In fact, it’s been so bad that she sat herself […]

Obama Fights Zombie Kids With New Initiative

You know what’s scary? Zombie kids — small, pale, motionless blobs with an eerie detachment from the world around them. No one wants to see vacant stares from children; it’s freaky and pretty depressing. But as more and more kids connect to their computers and iPhones, and disconnect from the world around them, the number of zombie kids […]

What Would Moses Drive?

Continuing on our quest to answer what cars the world’s gods, prophets, and holy teachers would drive, today EdenKeeper is tackling the question: What would Moses drive? Most of us know the story of Moses — he is an important prophet in Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. He is famously known for encountering God in the […]

What Would Buddha Drive?

At EdenKeeper we aren’t afraid of providing affirmative answers to your deep theological questions. We’ve analyzed the Bible and told you what Jesus would drive if he was still performing miracles and healing the afflicted today. We looked closely at Greek mythology and figured out that Zeus would drive a Chevy (thunder)Volt when he wanted […]

What Would Zeus Drive?

A few months ago, we answered the question: What Would Jesus Drive? This week EdenKeeper will continue to ponder one of the greatest theological questions of our modern times: what vehicles would the world’s gods, prophets, and enlightened teachers drive? This is a legitimate question to ask. Every religious leader from the Pope to the Dalai […]
