I have an exceedingly painful blind pimple on/in my nose right now and I’m reviewing supply and demand because I may or may not have an econ quiz tomorrow and I may or may not know how any of this works. What a way to wrap up Monday.

I hope y’all also recognize my correct usage of making the name of an epic or religious figure ending in s possessive by only adding an apostrophe. That shit isn’t for Charles or James, it’s for Jesus and Zeus.

Typically I leave the history debunking for Moe but this one was just right up my alley.

Isn’t it funny that this is exactly what the Quran says (and that from the very beginning Islam purported to return to the truth of Christianity), but Islamophobes have been calling the Quran a fake for centuries?

I dare one of you to go look up how the Bible was “written” and then get back to me about whether or not this is even a blip in religious history. First off, all the bible’s books, and especially the gospels, were not written at once and none of them, ESPECIALLY THE GOSPELS, were written contemporaneously with the life of Jesus. At the earliest some were written 30 years after, others possible 70 to 80 years later. We know this. No one doubts this. What would be fishy is someone purporting to have a REAL gospel that tells a story thats more historically accurate than all the others ones. None of them are primary accounts - anyone hocking one that claims to be is pretty suspect.

Second, and more importantly, THERE ARE PLENTY OF GOSPELS NOT IN THE BIBLE. Like did you guys not even go and SEE the Da Vinci Code?! This is Dan Brown 101 biblical lore. You can read about gospels from every apostles, all their friends, their neighbors, and a billion other people. The Gospels that made it into the Bible were SELECTED. BY MEN. No biblical scholar or even vague historian acts like the gospels are the only accounts of Jesus life - or denies that other accounts that tell wildly different stories exist as well, and may be just as plausible as the ones in the New Testament. Go look up the Council of Nicaea. The Gospel of Barnabus is just another alternate version that didn’t make the cut.

Could it be telling the truth and its narrative just didn’t work with the vision of the Council? Yes. Could Barnabus be one of a dozen other people who claimed to know Jesus’ life better than everyone else, but was equally full of shit? Yes. COULD IT BE THAN NONE OF THE GOSPELS ARE CORRECT BUT THAT’S NOT REALLY THE WHOLE THEOLOGICAL POINT OF THEM? YES.

If you’re gonna come for the most widely published and studied book in the world at least check out the wikipedia page first.

As a person of color, 90% of the time when I go to see theater in New York City, it is not for me. But guess what I do: as a person of theater — and the main aspect of theater is sitting in a room with people and having empathy for people who do not look or sound like me, who come from different backgrounds — I expand my horizons, which is the point of theater.

You don’t trick people into pretending like “oh, this is for you” when it’s not. You tell them to expand their horizons, and explain why this is important, why you need to, as an older, white person in a metropolitan area, see something that is not about you and actually identify with the universal themes. Because that’s what people of color have to do all the time, 24/7 when they look at tv, when they go to theater, when they go see a movie. Otherwise you would go crazy and just be pissed off and never seen anything if you’re a black person. You have to become a better listener and a better audience member.

Weirdly enough, I need to reblog this for my records.
