Judgment Day

Presumably most readers of this blog will already be aware of this, but tonight on PBS there will be a show about Intelligent Design entitled “Judgment Day”. I’m sharing a copy of the press release in pdf format for those interested. Over the past two days we’ve had John Hart visiting with us from Boston [Read More...]

Sterling Who’s Who Update

I am posting this to update readers of this blog on the status of my complaint about Sterling Who’s Who. They have refunded my money, and so I consider the matter closed and have no outstanding or unresolved complaint against the company. They did at one point threaten to sue me for defamation of character [Read More...]

The Twelve Q-less Days Of Christmas

This is to be sung to the tune of the Twelve Days Of Christmas. All the words fit, provided you sing them fast enough. The next step is for all Bibliobloggers to send me a video of themselves singing the song, and we can put together our first Bibliobloggers YouTube Christmas video… The Twelve Q-less [Read More...]

Synoptic Meme

My post on Q and the follow up post have sparked several responses (at NT Gateway, Dilettante Exegete and Metacatholic, to name a few). One’s view on this, of course, is a paradigm and thus one particular piece of evidence, on its own, is unlikely to result in an immediate paradigm shift. Nevertheless, perhaps it [Read More...]

Spoiling Christmas vs. Spoiling Q

Blame Mark Goodacre if you must (who replied, as I hoped he might, to my previous post about Q). But I find that I must provide details that would spoil most fundamentalists’ Christmas in order to make my defense of ‘Q’. Let me be clear once again that I am not presupposing that Q was [Read More...]

The Difference Makes Q

The definition of the ‘Q’ source is the source of the material found in both Matthew and Luke, but not in Mark. But while the similarities constitute the substance of Q, the differences between Matthew and Luke provide the strongest argument for the existence of Q. If it were simply a question of similarities, one [Read More...]

Sterling Who’s Who – More On The “Misunderstanding”

UPDATE: I have received information suggesting that the currently-existing company Sterling Who’s Who is different from the one prosecuted in 1995. I personally have no way of verifying whether any of the same individuals are or are not involved in the company, but my assumption that this was a continuous company was based on the [Read More...]

Top Ten Verses Of Scripture (Part 2)

Here’s the remainder of my list. It was hard to choose, and I suspect I’ll think of others I wish I had included…6. “For he will repay to each one according to his deeds: to those who by patiently doing good seek glory and honor and immortality, he will give eternal life. But for those [Read More...]

Top Ten Verses Of Scripture (Part 1)

I have come to seriously dislike verses. Not specific verses from the Bible, nor the convenience they provide when referring to passages and looking things up. But the fact that so many Christians, when seeking guidance from the Bible, look for relevant verses just irks me, because in the original texts there were, strictly speaking, [Read More...]

Ironically NOT Expelled From Expelled

Apparently a post I wrote complaining about censorship has appeared on the site of the forthcoming movie Expelled. They presumably didn’t catch that I was being censored by proponents of Intelligent Design. (Thanks to The Austringer for noticing this had been posted.) I wonder if they will censor my post about censorship if they realize. [Read More...]
