    who had the secret mojo, the secrets to be passed on only to the initiated.  Sounds like a modern con.  But I am more in tune with the gnostics than with the strain of christianity that survived.  I strongly recommend the books of Pagels, and Bart Ehrman ,on NT textual criticism and forgotten scripture.

    Pagels is one of the leading, and most respected, New Testament scholars today.  Early christianity is more interesting than you could ever imagine.  It's mostly about politics.  Nothing new under the sun.

    Real plastic here; none of that new synthetic stuff made from chicken feathers. By the morning of 9/12/2001 the people of NYC had won the War on Terror.
