Theologian CCG?

I am posting a reminder about the giveaway of sets of theologian trading cards as well as signed cards. To enter, leave a comment on that post (not this one). I suggested there the possibility of playing a game with the cards. What might a Theologians Customizable Card Game look like? Could it be like [Read More...]

Durham Theses of Interest

Via Ancient World Online, I learned of an enormous horde of doctoral and masters theses that have been made available online, on topics including the Bible, ancient Judaism, Roman religion, Patristics, and much else. There are too many to make it seem worth listing them all here (click through to AWOL for a list of [Read More...]

More Reflections on Santa and God

This image was shared with me this morning by e-mail: Perhaps it is a professional hazard (as I have blogged about God and Santa more than once in the past), but I found myself not just enjoying the face value humor of it, but also reflecting on how this relates to ancient (including Biblical) and [Read More...]

#sblaar Religion and Science Fiction: From Chrono-synclastic Infundibula to the Definition of Chalcetron

I spent most of the morning talking with a filmmaker working on a documentary on religious minorities in Iraq. Even so, I managed to cross paths with lots of old friends at least briefly. My first actual session I have gotten to is thus the AAR session on Religion and Science Fiction. The first paper [Read More...]

Cymothoa Exigua and Creationism

The Evolution Facebook page shared the interesting example of parasite behavior I am quoting in full below. The photo may give you nightmares. The question I want to ask is what young-earth creationists and others who reject evolution say about such organisms. Do they envisage God creating these parasites specifically to do the things that [Read More...]

Did God Want Obama to Win the Election? Will This Be on the Exam?

A colleague shared this on Facebook, suggesting that it would make for a good exam question in theology to ask students to carefully examine the underlying theological views and assumptions at play. What do you think?     [Read more...]
