On the historicity of Jesus : why we might have reason for doubt by Richard Carrier( Book )

5 editions published between 2014 and 2015 in English and held by 105 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The assumption that Jesus existed as a historical person has occasionally been questioned in the course of the last hundred years or so, but any doubts that have been raised have usually been put to rest in favor of imagining a blend of the historical, the mythical and the theological in the surviving records of Jesus. Carrier re-examines the whole question and finds compelling reasons to suspect the more daring assumption is correct. He lays out extensive research on the evidence for Jesus and the origins of Christianity and poses the key questions that must now be answered if the historicity of Jesus is to survive as a dominant paradigm. Carrier contrasts the most credible reconstruction of a historical Jesus with the most credible theory of Christian origins if a historical Jesus did not exist. Such a theory would posit that the Jesus figure was originally conceived of as a celestial being known only through private revelations and hidden messages in scripture; then stories placing this being in earth history were crafted to communicate the claims of the gospel allegorically; such stories eventually came to be believed or promoted in the struggle for control of the Christian churches that survived the tribulations of the first century. Carrier finds the latter theory more credible than has been previously imagined. He explains why it offers a better explanation for all the disparate evidence surviving from the first two centuries of the Christian era. He argues that we need a more careful and robust theory of cultural syncretism between Jewish theology and politics of the second-temple period and the most popular features of pagan religion and philosophy of the time."--Back cover
Italy and the Second World War : alternative perspectives( Book )

8 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Italy in the Second World War: Alternative Perspectives stems from the necessity to write an important page of Second World War history, by focusing on the Italian war experience, which has been overshadowed in international research by the attention given to its senior Axis partner. Drawing extensively on material from Italian and international archives, a team of Italian and international historians, led by Emanuele Sica and Richard Carrier, offers a broad-ranging volume on the war seen through the lens of Italian soldiers and civilians, and populations occupied by the Italian army. Contributors are: Luca Baldissara, Cindy Brown, Federico Ciavattone, Nicolò Da Lio, Paolo Fonzi, Francesco Fusi, Eric Gobetti, Federico Goddi, Andrea Martini, Niall MacGalloway, Amedeo Osti Guerrazzi, Paolo Pezzino, Matteo Pretelli, Nicholas Virtue."--Provided by publisher

The scientist in the early Roman Empire by Richard Carrier( )

4 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 59 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In this extensive sequel to Science Education in the Early Roman Empire, Dr. Richard Carrier explores the social history of scientists in the Roman era. Was science in decline or experiencing a revival under the Romans? What was an ancient scientist thought to be and do? Who were they, and who funded their research? And how did pagans differ from their Christian peers in their views toward science and scientists? Some have claimed Christianity valued them more than their pagan forebears. In fact the reverse is the case. And this difference in values had a catastrophic effect on the future of humanity. The Romans may have been just a century or two away from experiencing a scientific revolution. But once in power, Christianity kept that progress on hold for a thousand yearswhile forgetting most of what the pagans had achieved and discovered, from an empirical anatomy, physiology, and brain science to an experimental physics of water, gravity, and air. Thoroughly referenced and painstakingly researched, this volume is a must for anyone who wants to learn how far we once got, and why we took so long to get to where we are today

Not the impossible faith : why Christianity didn't need a miracle to succeed by Richard Carrier( Book )

1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Dr. Richard Carrier is an expert in the history of the ancient world and a critic of Christian attempts to distort history in defense of their faith. Not the Impossible Faith is a tour de force in that genre, dissecting and refuting the oft-repeated claim that Christianity could not have succeeded in the ancient world unless it was true. Though framed as a detailed rebuttal to Christian apologist J.P. Holding (author of The Impossible Faith), Carrier takes a general approach that educates the reader on the history and sociology of the ancient world, answering many questions like: How did Christians approach evidence? Was there a widespread prejudice against the testimony of women? Was resurrection such a radical idea? Who would worship a crucified criminal? And much more. Written with occasional humor and an easy style, and thoroughly referenced, with many entertaining "gotcha!" moments, Not the Impossible Faith is a must-read for anyone interested in the origins of Christianity

Human FEN1 Expression and Solubility Patterson in DNA Replication and Repair( Book )

2 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Flap endo-/exonuclease (FEN1) is a highly conserved protein shown to be one of 10 essential human proteins required for the production of form I DNA following DNA replication from the simian virus 40 (SV40) origin of replication in vitro. Human FEN1, and FEN1 homologues from yeast to mammals, are also implicated in different forms of DNA repair. In this thesis, I provide additional evidence supporting human FEN1's role in nuclear DNA replication in vivo. I show that human FEN1 mRNA and protein levels increase in a cell cycle-dependent manner, with peak mRNA and protein levels attained coincident with S phase DNA replication in both primary and transformed cells. Using novel antibodies that recognize human FEN1, I further show that very little DNase I-extractable FEN1 protein is present in S phase cells, suggesting that FEN1 protein is not stably associated with DNA, or DNA-associated proteins such as PCNA. Furthermore, I demonstrate that substantial levels of insoluble (SDS-extracted) FEN1 protein are present in human cells throughout the cell cycle. Fluorescence microscopic analysis of HeLa cells transfected with Green Fluorescent Protein-human FEN1 (GFP-FEN1) plasmid cDNA also supports this observation, and further suggests that human FEN1 is a nuclear protein, supporting a role for human FEN1 protein during nuclear DNA replication in vivo. Human SV40-transformed MRC-5 (MRC5-SV) cells treated with UV irradiation or the alkylating agent MMS show no significant increase in either FEN1 mRNA or protein levels, or any changes in FEN1 protein solubility. In light of those observations, a potential role for FEN1 protein in DNA repair is discussed in context of a proposed mechanism of FEN1 enzyme activity during DNA replication
