Dilettante of The Year

That’s lunacy. It’s both historically ignorant and, worse, it implies that no one but English speakers have a real Bible. Utter nonsense and, frankly, demonic. This is this year’s dilettante.

Pentebabbleist the Fireman Pseudo-prophet At it Again With his Nutbag Ramblings

As time goes on, Mark Taylor‘s prophecies are getting increasingly incoherent. It’s almost as if he needs to convolute his prophecies more and more so it’s more difficult to point out the fact that they never come true. Either way, we … Continue reading

Barton Swaim is Why People Who Aren’t Biblical Scholars Shouldn’t Talk About the Bible or Biblical Scholarship

His ‘review’ of John Barton’s magnificent book is the sort of garbage that one expects of a dilettante who knows absolutely NOTHING about the field.  His assessment of Barton’s latest book is puerile and juvenile.  It’s as though he has … Continue reading

Dilly Award – the Dilettantish Publisher Edition

There’s so much wrong here, and they don’t even know it.  First of all, The Geneva Bible of 1599 is a revision of the 1564 edition.  Second, Luther had nothing to do with it.  Third, there’s no such thing as … Continue reading

This Is the Stupidest Thing You Will See On the Internet Today, Bar None

It’s an essay, on the bible, about the ‘virgin birth’, by, now get this, not a biblical scholar, but by a psychologist!  Hey, Raw Story, why not get a climate change denier to write an essay about the weather?  Or … Continue reading
