Finished How The Word Is Passed by Clint Smith a little while ago. Speaks on American history and the ways it’s purposefully twisted (and trying to be corrected) by using historical sites as focal points (Thomas Jefferson’s plantation, Angola, Door of No Return, Wall Street, etc).


Thinking of my own upbringing in the K-12 system, I’m still hot they got me to dress up as a pilgrim :francis::snoop:I got got. It didn’t even click to me til just now they we barely learned any legit white or black history. I don’t think I ever intentionally thought about it, even with all this anti-CRT propaganda going on….because I’ve always learned about it outside of school. Not even in a formal way thru my parents….but more so in a self curious way and thru my older siblings.

And then also to think how propaganda / historical lies shape other people (like my little cousins that I’ve visited in Haiti)….it’s a real powerful weapon.




- Never knew that Angola was a Iiteral plantation. They still currently have a gift shop celebrating the idea of Angola/incarceration.

I couldn't get through the first chapter without banging my head against the edge of the book. This is basically a "Beginners guide to how it was like living in poverty". It goes from a story about three Puerto Rican kids living in Kensington, to historic information about how poverty came about, and back to some kid burning a trash can :why: . I tapped out.

Insightful book on women behind the scenes of cinema and the writer is actually pretty good with her knowledge of movies.

Been loving this series. If you are a fan of old time WW2 type of stories and noir type of settings, this is a good read.

God an anatomy, Ph.D Francesca Stavrakopoulou

“An astonishing and revelatory history that re-presents God as he was originally envisioned by ancient worshippers—with a distinctly male body, and with superhuman powers, earthly passions, and a penchant for the fantastic and monstrous.”

Mesopotamian Civilization and the Origins of the New Testament - Robin Baker

In this ground-breaking study, Robin Baker investigates the contribution ancient Mesopotamian theology made to the origins of Christianity. Drawing on a formidable range of primary sources, Baker's conclusions challenge the widely held opinion that the theological imprint of Babylonia and Assyria on the New Testament is minimal, and what Mesopotamian legacy it contains was mediated by the Hebrew Bible and ancient Jewish sources. After evaluating and substantially supplementing previous research on this mediation, Baker demonstrates significant direct Mesopotamian influence on the New Testament presentation of Jesus and particularly the character of his kingship. He also identifies likely channels of transmission. Baker documents substantial differences among New Testament authors in borrowing Mesopotamian conceptions to formulate their Christology. This monograph is an essential resource for specialists and students of the New Testament as well as for scholars interested in religious transmission in the ancient Near East and the afterlife of Mesopotamian culture.
