An Appeal To The Biblioblogging Community

To the biblioblogging community, As I will be hosting the Biblical Studies Carnival at the start of next month with its round-up of posts from this month, you might be expecting me to remind you of this fact and ask you to submit posts. That is not why I am writing. I am writing to [Read More...]

Sci-Fi Around the Biblioblogosphere

If you hang around this blog a lot, you might not realize that discussion of sci-fi on biblioblogs is not universal, although it is not exactly uncommon either. Today, Scot McKnight shared a link to and excerpt from an article in The Chronicle of Higher Education on what led a programmer of robots to switch [Read More...]

Biblioblog Rankings for July 2011 (and Peer Review in the Biblioblogosphere)

Steve Caruso has posted this month’s biblioblog rankings. The top biblioblog this month was Debunking Christianity, which demonstrated its character as a biblioblog by tackling the topic of the historical Jesus (among other things), doing its part to spread a mainstream scholarly approach among atheists, some of whom find mythicism attractive. Exploring Our Matrix came [Read More...]

Around the Blogosphere

P. Z. Myers shared this image indicating the status of the United States as a statistical outlier in at least one important respect (originally from Calamities of Nature): Alison Campbell tries to clear up the ongoing confusion about fact and theory. John Shuck shared some challenging thoughts inspired by Don Cupitt on solar living (and [Read More...]

John Loftus Accuses Jim West of Hate Speech

In what will presumably be a major talking point in the blogosphere in coming days, John Loftus has accused Jim West of hate speech. I suspect that the discussion of this topic on both Zwingli Redivivus and Debunking Christianity will get heated, and so let me offer this post’s comments section as a place for [Read More...]

(Possible) Bibliobloggers and #ManlyMen Discuss Biblioblogging and Bullying

Several bloggers have joined in the discussion about the term “biblioblog” and the question of biblioblog and biblioblogger identity. Peter Kirk chimed in, noting the irony that the top post of the day was my post about the Doctor Who Experience. Doug Chaplin doesn’t care. Chris Brady seems to, slightly. John Loftus thinks it’s all [Read More...]

How to Determine the Queen and King of the Biblioblogosphere

There have been major struggles for dominance in the biblioblogosphere, as bloggers have sought to attain the coveted #1 rank, and debated and introduced new methods of evaluation – from Alexa rankings to voting. I would like to propose a different method. The queen and king of the biblioblogosphere should not be based on something [Read More...]

What is a Biblioblog?

What is a biblioblog? That is the question which Scott Bailey asked and which Jim West, Joel Watts, Rod of Alexandria, Steve Caruso and James Bradford Pate have each sought to answer. I am due to host the Biblical Studies Carnival in early September with a round-up of posts from August. So hopefully we can all figure [Read More...]

Prove John Hobbins Wrong: Criticize Patheos!

I shared a link in my last post, but I think this deserves a post of its own. John Hobbins has shared why he can’t recommend Patheos. I can understand some of his points, while others I think are off target. But one in particular seems way off base, the idea that by joining Patheos, [Read More...]

Biblical Studies Carnival – May 2011 Unsettled Edition

Joel Watts has published the latest Biblical Studies Carnival. It’s an entertaining round-up of highlights from the past month’s biblioblogging. Take a look! [Read more...]

Vote for Your Favorite Biblioblog!

Everyone has presumably heard by now that Unsettled Christianity is the new #1 in the biblioblogosphere, as far as Alexa ranking is concerned. Sadly, the Alexa ranking system cannot differentiate blogs that share a domain, as those at Patheos do, and so this may well be my last time in the top 50. But you [Read More...]
