my search continues, not much luck i might add. the bibliography that was listed in the link,
Skeptic Mangles ZEITGEIST (and Religious History) A Commentary by Acharya S aka D.M.
from my post before last on pg 53, was all but useless. there were 17 listed, none have any footnotes, pg numbers, references or any
thing that would be helpful, she must want you to guess at what she uses to draw her conclusions. four of them were her own work, two web sites, 1
site was a group message board, the other was pbs' frontline site for "from Jesus to Christ", which i have seen when it aired.out of the 11 left i was
only able to find two, i called my local library and they had those. i have not been unable to locate the others. well i need to correct that, i could
buy them, but i'm not the richest man in the world, and i have to spend my money wisely. purchasing these books, i do not feel to be wise.
that's not why i'm posting now. in my search i kept running into references to price's review of her first book.
the Christ conspiracy:the greatest story ever sold
the one where he is very critical of her work, and reveals her name. i saw this the first time in this link.from the same post as above on pg
53,Acharya's critics: her responses
on the second page, Jesus seminar - robert m. price.
now i thought this kinda strange, all a long the one that i'm done with, keeps on using price as a source.
so as i was reading the above link in the third paragraph down at the very end, there is a link for her response to his review. click the link in the
ex-text below to view. are you surprised. i wasn't. i've been running into this from the very beginning of my search.
While any other person might
re-evaluate their approach on a certain subject when their information is lacking or contains errors, Murdock once again took this criticism of her
book too personally and devoted an article to Robert Price's review on the TBK: www.truthbeknown.com...
now again in the
interest of being fair, it is a old link and could have been purged or any other number of things.again being fair, while reading the ftn blog, i saw
several members complaining about posts being removed, and being banned. it would seem that the site admin and mods don't like bad publicity, i wonder
if it's the same at the tbk site. well i wanted to see this review. so i went to price's site. this is what i
after this i decided to try wikipedia.you can all ways find something on wiki. first looked for price. not much help. then tried d m murdock. got a
redirect to this Acharya S
while viewing this page i saw this,
Theologian Robert M. Price, who
is sympathetic to the Christ myth hypothesis, wrote a critical review of Murdock's first book. He has, however, retracted it previously from his
website, for reasons unknown currently.
and the next sentence,
i'm starting to smell fish again.
He has been supportive of her subsequent work, promoting Suns of God:
Krishna, Buddha and Christ Unveiled in a recommended reading list along with promoting the same book in The Pre-Nicene New Testament: Fifty-Four
Formative Texts, penning the foreword to Who Was Jesus: Fingerprints of the Christ and writing a positive review of Christ in Egypt
i tried to find the review several more times, but up to this point it has eluded me.
after taking a break to clear the stench of fish from my nostrils, pushing the review to the side i resumed my search and kept on running into the
same things over and over again. also i kept on seeing comments on the review. i came across one link in a search and clicked it.
here's a taste to wet your whistle, a screen shot.
yep i got it, i'll post a link a little later on.
so here we have the review that price and murdock don't want you to see. now granted it's not the original review, it's a is the revised. that being
said it is no where else to be found on any of their web sites. and as i have said every link i found in searches was a dead end. i even searched ats,
and all i can find is the links that the one who i'm done with posted.
the page appears to be a message board,Christ_Conspiracy · The Christ Conspiracy. i have made screen shots and gonna upload to ats. don't want to let
this one slip away. for some reason it seems everybody folds to her. not gonna lose it this time.so here ya go.
The Christ Con by Robert M. Price.
price sure rips here a new one in this review, i wonder what made him change his mind.
this review brings up a lot of questions. that's another post. oh check out acharya's replies in the link.
