"@ RR You continue to miss the point. I do not disagree with you that the Old Testament is very relevant to the New Testament. But, you do not seem to understand that astrology was also fundamental in Judaism. One of the points I made was that the…"

Diana graduated magna cum laude with a BS in history. She began her studies of West Asia as a conservative Christian kid in Alaska. After living in Israel; then, traveling and studying ancient history for the last 25+ years, she ended up a liberal atheist. But, unlike many other atheist critics of religion, Diana knows and loves the ancient cultures which invented the Abrahamic faiths. No theist can accuse her of reading the Bible like a fundamentalist. She has an in depth knowledge of the political and economic environment which shaped the minds of the Biblical authors. Her primary fascination is with the cultures of the Bronze Age and Iron Age Levant. But, she is a generalist with historical interests ranging from Sumer, to Anatolia, to Egypt, to Greece, and Rome. Her methodology is based on meme theory, following changes in cultures as fashions, avoiding racial descriptions. This method provides a powerful new understanding of ancient peoples, describing their evolution in dynamic terms, rather than as static ethnicities. Understanding ancient cultures in dynamic terms provides a very different view of the development of ancient religions than derived from Bible-based histories

// In response to: Tebet: Expulsion of the Sadduccees //

Thanks! I was trying to look for Jewish Holidays, but I guess they point out only the highly popular ones on websites. Tebet might have been a rare tradition.

Really enjoy your posts and had to stop by and leave you a token 'myth'....

Please don't hold back from sharing further reviews of your book! It's exciting to watch a book about the contentious origins of many Christian rituals be lauded rather than condemned. And as an aspiring author myself, I can only imagine how exciting those reviews must be! Keep us posted. :)

Hi, Diana. Your blogs have really been spurring some wonderful conversations; it's great having an author as a member who provides intelligent, articulate content. Although I just approved the post on your latest book review, the other moderators and I would ask that you post any further reviews as a comment on that post in lieu of a new post. It's easier for people to follow a discussion concerning your book if it is in one or two threads.

If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me or any of the other moderators. We really do appreciate all of your contributions. And please do keep us updated on further reviews; it's wonderful to hear that you are getting such a great reception! :)

I might have to ask my local library to get a copy. It sounds interesting. Nice to meet you too. I like how you worked the Gates of Babylon into your avatar.
