Post Kooks and Quacks of the Roman Empire
I guess this might be somewhat off topic, but I came across this essay by Richard Carrier and I could not resist posting the link to it here for your reading pleasure.

This essay talks about state of "gullibility" of people in Roman Empire around the period when Christian gospels were written:

Kostya,

It may just be really early in the morning for me, but I don't see any link in your post? :p

Nicole,

It must be very early because the link is there. :) You just need to click on the last line in my first message. :)

Just in case of some technical issues though, here is the link:

Eric,

You are welcome.

Nicole,

Actually, I do think that because links look the same as any other text they are hard to find a lot of times.

Chris,

Can you make a change in your stylesheet files to make links stand out a little more?

Thank you.
