Not old age, Dave. Just think of Bertie Russell or Noam Chomsky. It's pure senility...

...like when Windows crashes on me then I restart & Windows hits me with a  r o u n d   of goddamnmuthrforking   u p d a t e s, so I totally forget whatever it was I was doing when the disaster struck.

My posting here was a drive-by. I don't think I could face going around in circles any more, covering the same ground, coping with the obnoxious, getting nowhere because there is no sign or hope of co-operation or development. I can't see a nexus of experience coming together to pass on an evolving tradition of an alternative scholarly approach to biblical studies. No fostering of skills for that purpose. "I may be totally wrong, but I'm a dancing fool." Ed: I do note a few interesting new voices here.

I merely came looking for some data I may have posted here that I need, but didn't find.

Yes, that sums up nicely the SOP on this board. Now it is worse than ever.

The "Christianity" we knew in the past I doubt can ever recover from what has been done to it by recent history. Alvin Toffler is probably doing a jig in his grave, his theory of "future shock" (desperate defensive wagon circling occasioned by sheer information overload) being vindicated.

Keep well. DCH.

Yo Andrew!

Thanks for the suggestion. I was looking for stuff that could have been on any one of three fora, so I couldn't be sure of the location. But I'll keep it in mind.

What isn't described by Gramsci's idea of cultural hegemony (privilege and why our lot doesn't really improve) gets filled in by a flotilla of cognitive biases (why we make poor choices through self-imposed filters: or, why heuristics is such a bitch).

Hi spin, sorry you wont hang around as I for one have always enjoyed your posts. I can understand your attitude and frustration though. It does get old after a while.
