Ok, I have added the first page in a long time. I have at least one comment thread I am behind on as well, which I will get back to soon. Life issues have been extremely distracting for the last… well… year. And they haven’t STOPPED being distracting, but I felt the need to wade back in anyway. So I hereby present The Resurrection: So What?
Well, two days back and two new pages! Clearly, that’s an unsustainable rate, but hey, it feels good to be posting again. Today I have added another page on evolution, addressing selected specific creationist claims. Any claims that you would like me to add to the page, just let me know in the comments!
Oh, and apparently WordPress has changed something about the comments… they aren’t on by default on new pages. I have fixed that for yesterday’s page as well.
Thanks for reading, and as always, I welcome any questions, comments, or corrections!
It has been a tough year, for reasons I’m not going to go into here, and that difficulty has kept me distracted from this website. Hopefully, I am now going to be able to resume posting. Regardless, I now have a new page added, this one a primer on evolution. For anyone that has had a college-level biology class, this will probably include nothing new; it is primarily targeted for creationists who think they understand evolution, but actually don’t. I expect that an upcoming post will probably be in an FAQ format, addressing common creationist misconceptions. As always, I welcome any comments or questions. Thank you for reading!
I have had a number of real-life issues that have kept me from being able to blog, but hopefully I will be able to return to blogging sometime in the near future. In the meantime, I thought I would add a page where I have collected some of the work I have done under another of my alter egos, Dr. Countermeme. Enjoy!
It appears that Carrier has posted an hour-long seminar that he gave summarizing his work in the book that I just summarized myself. This talk was, I believe, being given to his funders. I still think that my summary is likely to be useful, because I wasn’t constrained by time the same way he was, and thus I was able to more comprehensively address the arguments and counterarguments. Still, for anyone that is intimidated by the length of my posts, I highly recommend this seminar.
I am getting close to done with my project summarizing Richard Carrier’s book, On the Historicity of Jesus: Why We Might Have Reason for Doubt. You can look at my previous blog entries or the page itself if you are interested in more background on what I am doing and why. I have one more major chapter to do, covering the Epistles, and then the conclusions, but everything else is now done. This has been a lot of work, and I’m feeling somewhat exhausted as a result, so I would definitely welcome any feedback at all, even negative, so that I can have some indication that someone, anyone, is finding what I’ve done useful. The last bits will probably get done next weekend.
