"Diana, It doesn't seem likely that a Celtic myth made it to the Mideast with any significant impact. I tend to favor the idea that Paul constructed the mythical Jesus using a Greek Mystery Cult template. The tale has many of the hallmarks of a…"

Who’s your daddy? The Cuckold Carpenter in Myth, Ritual and Philosophy

My mother-in-law loves to say: “maternity is a matter of fact and paternity is a matter of opinion.” Opinions about the parentage of Jesus expose the origins of his story in Palestinian savior mythology. The story of a savior boy god with two daddies evolved from conflicting opinions between Greeks and Phoenicians about the role of the craftsmen deity in the story and who played the role of his mother. The Canaanite myth of Aqhat illustrates how the story in the stars was known during the…See More

Thus spake not Zarathustra

Posted on October 10, 2010 at 1:47pm 0 Comments

The notion that Zoroastrian monotheism influenced the Old Testament authors is a very widespread idea. It is an attractive idea because it fits so well with the theory that the Torah was compiled during the Persian period. It is also evident that Jews held the most famous Achaemenid kings, Cyrus and Darius, in high regard and there is a lot of evidence of Persian influences in Judaism; so,…

Erbil, Kurdistan: "Oldest City in the World" Video Tour

Posted on October 7, 2010 at 8:03pm 1 Comment

My "man" just came home from a business trip in Kurdistan. Because he knows that I am obsessed with ancient history, he took lots of pictures and video of the Erbil citadel, one of the oldest cities in the world. I put together some videos on my youtube channel. Here is my favorite:…

How to Write Like an Onion

Posted on October 7, 2010 at 2:20am 1 Comment

I always think it is funny when I post a spoof article and some people say: "That's not true!" and post a Snope's link, debunking the story. I tend to think that some stories are obviously jokes. So, I thought it would be fun to show you how some spoof articles, like those of the Onion, are written. They take a real article, like this one: … Continue

Pagan Mythology in the Jesus Story

Posted on October 1, 2010 at 9:00pm 5 Comments

Here is one example of pagan myth and Babylonian star lore in the New Testament from my book. This excerpt describes the action in Mark chapter 5:





“As Jesus continued his trip in this quadrant of the zodiac, he drove a herd of demon possessed swine into the sea. Jesus and his apostles crossed the sea from Pisces and headed for Gadara (or Gerasa,) deep in the lower left quadrant of the sky chart. They found a man possessed with demons in a graveyard. Jesus casts his legion… Continue

Greetings, Diana! I notice you haven't been active at Atheist Nexus since Nov. <sigh> Sometimes it can seem a bit fragmented, with different groups for every interest. Please consider a group for socializing, where we talk about whatever's on our minds, Hang With Friends. :D You might feel more at home.

i've always thought Oregon & La. had that in common...RAIN! in typical biblical proportions; nothing in moderation where it would be beneficial for all in need, but it's either flood or drought here. God will bake us for months on end w/ this 100 degree heat & then when the good xtians pray hard enuff, gawd sends waaay to much rain. just like the "quail" he oversupplied to his "chosen" in the desert.

Diana, Fifteen years of private practice and I was miserable. I started playing horses when I was ten and only dreamed of making a living. Now I am doing it. It is my "opiate". I am guessing you know the benefit of living your passion. Looking forward to reading your book.

Dear Diana
Thank you very much for writing. I have read the review/explanation/summary of your recent book that is given in the Secular News Daily, and I do like what I see.
It appears to be a fine work of scholarship--but one about which I have inadequate knowledge. Besides my being insufficiently competent to judge, I regret that I do not have the time to read the book and prepare a review. I am already grossly overworked with dates for deadline jobs that are not being met, and I am letting people down through promising too much.
So, sorry, although I would like to help on such a major matter, I cannot oblige despite wanting to.
Try asking generally on Atheist Nexus for potential reviewers,
With my best regards, Terry Meaden.

Thanks for friending me. I think some element of the Baptist upbringing never goes away completely. I get shivers up my spine whenever approach the town where I grew up, small midwestern town. Alaska is much more remote Im sure. Wow, how exciting, now I know someone whose mom knew Sarah Palin!

Maybe you would be interested in this group? Getting Religion. I've been wanting to do more with it, but like Nike says, I need to "Just do it!"

Thanks. Not all coasts are created equal though, haha. I was just thinking of North and South Carolina. There might be some liberals there but I have a perception of it being a bible belt. Isn't Pat Robertson in VA Beach area? I here there are a lot of liberals in Denmark. I should stop rambling on.

How did OR become a state for liberal minds?
