I'm afraid this blog will be remaining in hibernation for the time being. This is likely to remain the case until my thesis is completed.
However, an old project has now seen the light of day. A while back, I wrote a rebuttal to an article on religious history by Kyle Gerkin that was hosted by the Secular Web. They have kindly agreed to host my rebuttal as well and you can read it here.
In another development, reader Andrew Criddle has tracked down the German article which explains why the Crucified Orpheus is probably a fake (see my previous post). His summary of what he found is here. In short, he explains how the Orpheus amulet uses a kind of iconography that didn't develop until five hundred years or more after it was supposed to have been made.
