Warning: Dangerous Site (and why, for the time being, the Mac OS is more secure)

For quite some time now I have had “robots” mining my posts and putting them on their “blogs” resulting in pingback in my posts. Most of these are just intended to generate traffic back to their sites. Lately there have been some from a site of various names, but if the pinback is followed, looks like this: It looks like a page full of YouTube links but if you click on one (I like to […]

Harrington’s Review of Vermes’ Resurrection

Discussion of GV’s latest work began on blogs yesterday. Out today (but actually dated “March 24, 2008”) Daniel J Harrington, SJ has a very professional review, “No Evidence?,” in America: The National Catholic Weekly. Obviously, as this review reveals, Vermes’ book is much more comprehensive than previous reviews and interviews have intimated (see below).
