My Novels

Wednesday, February 20, 2002

I haven't added links to articles lately, but will do that in this entry. I thought I wouldn't get to go on the bike ride due to storms early this morning, but by 9:30 it had cleared up and I went. The trail was a little damp, but otherwise okay for riding.

Here's the links to some interesting articles:

FBI claims environmental group doubles as terror group


U.S. military strikes could be coming, Pentagon official says

Wolfowitz said he was worried that Americans were beginning to act as if the threat from terrorism is over.


The Homeric Epics and the Gospel of Mark

A shocking thesis is that the Gospel of Mark is a deliberate and conscious anti-epic, an inversion of the Greek "Bible" of Homer's Iliad and Odyssey, which in a sense "updates" and Judaizes the outdated heroic values presented by Homer, in the figure of a new hero, Jesus (whose name, of course, means "Savior").

Shocking? Nah, but a very interesting (and probably correct) idea!

That's all for today folks!
