Craig Falvo Settles This Whole Neil Godfrey/ Joel Conversation

For the record, Craig had expressed cynicism about Joel’s case until later today, he came across more facts that haven’t been brought up.

Enter: Reason into the debate:

This is likely to be my only comment regarding the matter. Paul makes the claim that Joel was out of line because of the CC license (I believe that it was a Creative Commons Attribution, NonCommercial, Share Alike 3.0 United States License. license).

Now, the closest shot I could get on the web archive of Vridar was from April 30, 2013 http://web.archive.org/web/20130430223337/http://vridar.wordpress.com/ (the ones from June 28 did not load anything). Two moths before this fiasco, there was no CC license found on Neil’s blog. See Update 2.

Now, if we look at the conditions for the Share Alike, we see this:
Share Alike — If you alter, transform, or build upon this work, you may distribute the resulting work only under the same or similar license to this one. (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-sa/3.0/us/deed.en_US, emphasis mine)

Regardless of whether or not the post in question was licensed under a Creative Commons license, Godfrey still violated the conditions of the Creative Commons license by not having “the same or similar license to this one” on his own blog.

Game. Set. Match.

Yeah, if you wanna respond to Craig, find the comment here: RUN DMC(A).

Funny what happens when you commit yourself to the facts.

Now, with a new warning label

There seems to be some confusion among newer members of our audience, and I just wanted to make a few more clarifications, so I decided to add a “warning label of sorts” on the ABOUT POLITICAL JESUS page.

It reads as follows (Chad/Amanda, if there are any changes that need to be made, please let me know):


WARNING LABEL–This is an online community meant for the purpose of Christian spiritual reflection, theological experimentation, as well as creating a space for thinkers who wish to engage in anti-colonial, anti-racist, anti-kyrarchical (sexist), and non-violent forms of religion.


Please feel free to comment.

My goal is to respond to every comment on the posts that I write.

I know from our Blogstats that we have a lot of readers but our comments seem to not be showing that. I am sure this is the case for all blogs, the number of readers outnumbering commenters.

Don’t be shy.

Speaking of which, if your comment does not show up, it may be because the server has sent it to either spam or moderation-limbo, in which, be patient, for I inspect both on occasion. Plus, there is only one person whose comments here beg for moderation, and that is because he owes me an apology for misconstruing my positions on his blog that’s not even about biblical studies (even though others claim it is).


Here here are the very very generous COMMENTING and PERMISSIONS policies.
