    1. Forgoing some of our disdain of Facebook, we now have a group for Ask Bible Scholars

      I made the announcement post here about nine hours ago. So far, we have twenty-six members and three of them are scholars. If you have a Facebook account and you are interested, then join our...

      If you have a Facebook account and you are interested, then join our group after answering a couple of easy questions.

      I recently started an excellent series on Wondrium that is a PBS documentary from 1988: Joseph Campbell's The Power of Myth and I figured this series would be of interest to the Tildes crowd. In this series, Joseph Campbell sits down for a discussion with Bill Moyers discussing the way mythology has influenced our lives from the day-to-day to religion, and how these common motifs present themselves throughout our history and culture. In addition, there is a lot of examples and comparisons of these tropes within the Star Wars original trilogy that is discussed.

      It is a very eye-opening and thought-provoking series that I would really love to have a discussion about if others here find it interesting as well.

      Transcripts of the individual episodes can be found on this site:

      I personally prefer listening/watching as there are a lot of visual examples that are used during the discussion that helps make the topic more clear.

      I've already documented some of this here which could help you generate more pointed questions.

      I began my journey to leave this all behind 32 years ago. During that transition I've had several 'paranormal' experiences that have shaped my current cosmology.

      I'm the founder of r/AskBibleScholars and https://www.askbiblescholars.com.
