I know, I know, I’m a geek. On many levels. Fractals and gadgets and cycling and all that, I know. So some of you know that I’ve gotten into creating special ties for major debates. I designed a tie for the Ehrman debate featuring P52. Another for my debate with Shabir Ally on the prophecies of Jesus in the Old Testament. One for my debate with Dan Barker in Illinois, etc. So, I was thinking last week, what would I do for the upcoming debate with Robert Price? And the idea came rather easily.

Robert Price does not believe Paul wrote anything attributed to him. Nothing. But even beyond that radical position, he denies that 1 Corinthians 15:3-11 was an original part of 1 Corinthians, no matter when it was written. So, I thought it would be a great idea to take the uncial text of that vital portion of Scripture (this from Codex Sinaiticus) and create a tie. This time I inverted the colors, did some tweaking, used my 1990s vintage graphics program for Windows (PhotoSuite III—still my favorite!) and voila! One radically cool looking tie:

Yes, of course I posted it for sale, too, however, I only request that you don’t show up to the CRI National Conference wearing it. That would be…well, you know…weird.

I get regular requests when I travel for information on how to get my wild and wacky ties: either the biblical manuscript ties, or the fractal ones. I keep telling folks, “Just search for Zazzle on the blog.” And that would work, especially since I just used the word Zazzle. Here’s the flash panel with all my ties:
