    Scribal error?

    To be fair, not all atheists worship the great old ones…Yet….

      Though I notice from his Wiki page that Robert Price is a big fan of the Cthulhu Mythos.

      New Testament scholar or fanatic worshipper of Nyarlathotep? I think Price needs to come clean…

        Robert Price is a HUGE Cthulhu Mythos fan, I was actually introduced to his scholarly work by the anthology he edited about the Necronomicon. In it, he applies Higher Criticism techniques to supposed excerpts from the book exactly as one might the Bible. Great stuff!

          That sounds like a fun read Marc. I’ve just had a peek at Amazon – is it the one called “The Necronomicon: Selected Stories and Essays Concerning the Blasphemous Tome of the Mad Arab”?

    This is totally off topic but I was wondering if James Dunn has published his 3rd volume of Christinity in the Making. I thought it had already come out but I cannot find so now I believe it hasn’t even been released. Thanks.

    This handshake is amusing – and yet still scary in some ways, too.
