Had an early DL today. I started off playing Gene Cook’s impromptu interview with Ruben Israel. I likewise made the mistake, again, of calling Gene Cook “Gene Scott.” Gene called to straighten me out (Cook, not Scott–we do not accept extra-terrestrial phone calls). Anyway, playing clips from Ruben’s “preaching” and his nicey-nicey chat with Gene (in which he basically plays the martyr, saying I am jealous, and how he wishes we could all just work together) provided a rather stark contrast. Then we took a call from up in Cheese Head territory, and then played the words of Bart Ehrman outlining reasons to reject the gospels as historically accurate sources.
