  1. Very thorough, and very unbiased might I add. Considering it is now 6:36am, and I am wrestling with a particularly nasty rhinovirus, I couldn’t stop reading it. :-)

    1. LOL! Why thank you, Rick; that’s very sweet of you! Just think: now I can honestly say: “Read my web log — it’s more absorbing than the flu!”

  2. Very interesting. Back when the book The DaVinci Code came out I did some research along a similar vein and found that there is considerable evidence to suggest that the Bible was quite deliberately altered to remove all power from women and to cement the patriarchal nature of The Church(tm), and by extension Western culture. Alas this was merely for my own edification, so I don’t have a list of the sources I checked, but I would be fascinated to hear of any revelations you find along this line.

    And congratulations on getting into grad school. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

    1. Further revelations, hmm… well, you could try this previous “Firestarter” perhaps? It’s not on the precise subject you mentioned, but it was quite fascinating and enjoyable to research. Also, (since I’ve been reproached on occasion for writing at too “high” a level, which I don’t really get) I consider it one of my more readable/approachable articles: Were Jesus and Mary Magdalene really married?

      Enjoy, and let me know what you think! :)
