 How a Fictional Jesus Gave Rise to Christianity

Topic: Announcements

How a Fictional Jesus Gave Rise to Christianity

This is the culmination of my writings on the historicity of Jesus. This piece attempts to prove beyond a reasonable doubt that Jesus never existed and uses what I call a Fictional Jesus Theory to explain the origins of the belief in a real human Jesus.

All of my writings on Jesus historicty have been based on original research by myself and at this point I do hope to put together a book that consolidates all of my work on the topic.

 The Case for a National Individual Investment Program

Topic: Announcements
The Case For a National Individual Investment Program 
 
This article focuses on the National Individual Investment Program that I first advocated in 2010 in the article A Progressive Foundation for America's Economic Future. In this piece I flesh out more details on how such a program could operate and make the case for the program on practical and philosophical grounds.

 Understanding Capitalism Part V: Evolution of the American Economy

Topic: Announcements

At long last, I'm finially publishing my latest aricle on capitalism. It's been almost 3 years in the making, but I've finally wrapped it up.

Understanding Capitalism Part V: Evolution of the American Economy

This article seeks to provide an understanding of capitalism by providing an overview of the the American economy from colonial times to present day, and then using economic theory to understand why America's economic history unfolded the way that it has, and to then understand what both America's economic history and economic theory  tell us about America's economic future.

 How Reagan Sowed the Seeds of America's Demise

Topic: Announcements

How Reagan Sowed the Seeds of America's Demise 

This article explores the economic legacy of Ronald Reagan, and how the policies of "Reaganomics" have led to the decline of the American middle-class, both economically and in terms of political power. This article presents the case the the rise of income and wealth inequality in America over the past 30 years is a product of massive redistribution of wealth, facilitated by Reaganomic policies.

 The Gospel of Mark as Reaction and Allegory

Topic: Announcements

The Gospel of Mark as Reaction and Allegory

This article explores the Gospel of Mark in detail and examines how it was constructed after the destruction of Judea in 70 CE by making scriptural references to Hebrew scriptures that were about the destruction of Judea. This article shows that the Gospel of Mark, upon which all of the other Gospels were constructed, cannot be based on any historical account of a real person.

This will definately be the last article I write about religous stuff for a while, but I just had to write this one. With the elections coming up, etc., I plan to get back to discussing economics and political issues much more.

 Interview on Dogma Free America

Topic: Announcements

First let me say that I'll been very busy lately in my personal life, which is why I haven't updated the website in a while. Hopefully I'll get back to that soon however.

I recently did an interview on a podcast called Dogma Free America about my book, Jesus - A Very Jewish Myth. You can listen to the interview here:

Episode 33--Dogma Free America

My interview starts about half way through the show, around the 35 minute mark. 

Thanks to Rich from Dogma Free America for doing the interview with me.

There was one thing that I didn't touch on in the interview that I would have liked to, and that is some of the symbolism in the Gospels, especially the significance of the execution of Jesus during Passover. Passover, of course, is a Jewish holiday about the redemption of sins. They didn't execute people during Passover, and not only is Jesus supposedly executed on this day in the story, but so are other criminals as well. That Jesus would have been executed on the most symbolic day possible (except perhaps Yom Kippur), and a day which all of the evidence shows it was against Jewish law to execute people, is completely unbelievable and strikes of symbolism, not history.

Other than that I covered most of the other points that I wanted to cover during the interview.

 Some new changes to the website

Topic: Announcements
I just completed a minor revision of the website, cleaning up and few old links and doing some minor restructuring. In an effort to satisfy requests for printed versions of some of the articles here I am now making some of the writings from rationalrevolution available in printed format from the self-publishing site lulu.com.

I am combining related articles into larger books and then making those books available for purchase or PDF download there. The editing that I am doing or this is minor, most of the spelling and grammatical errors will probably remain, but links are being removed and images are being altered and things of that nature. I am also fixing some spelling and grammatical errors for print as I see then as well.

I currently have one such publication, Understanding Capitalism, completed and available via the Store link at the top of the website, and more will follow as I am able to get the materials prepared.

I have also added a Recommended Readings page that has links and comments on books that I have personally read and recommend. I will add new books as I myself read new books. The links will take you to Amazon.com and yes I do get their commission fee (4%-6%) if you purchase a book via following a link from this website. I also recommend, however, that you look for these books at your local library or look for some of the older ones on-line.

Thank you
