Viva La Library at 10,000 Views

Yesterday the information literacy video I made almost a year ago reached 10,000 views on YouTube. Thank you to everyone who has watched and/or shared it. It seems as though I ought to do something more to mark the occasion. Is it time for another educational musical parody? What about a song about footnotes and [Read More...]

Is Richard Carrier’s Talk about Acts History?

I found this comment left on a recent posthere on my blog entertaining. It approaches Carrier’s own talk the way Carrier’s talk approaches Acts: Carrier’s presentation of Acts is a fake history. * Lacks key markers of being a real history (Does not reference the primary sources precisely, does not explain his methodology. He reveals [Read More...]

If God Created Humans From Dirt…

From God of Evolution. Is it safe to assume that everyone will understand that this question is a parody of the young-earth creationist question “If we evolved from monkeys, why are there still monkeys?” and that it alludes to Genesis 2?
