Rationale for this Project


Summary of Progress during January – March 2018
  1. I had planned 7 hours / week for this quarter, but achieved a mere 20% of that. The reason for this was basically that I’d planned far too much time this quarter across my various projects, and this project took the major hit, in that I decided that I would not be able to continue with a serious critique Michael J. Alter’s book.
  2. Consequently, I spent 18 hours on this project in 1Q18 (77 hours YTD, where by “YTD” – Year to Date – I mean the academic year commenced in October 2017). That’s 20% of the planned effort (60% YTD). Overall, 3% of my Project effort in the Quarter was directed towards this project (making 6% YTD) – as against 12% planned (9% YTD).
  3. The highlights of the quarter were:-
  4. Further details of activity in the last quarter are given below:-

  2. Religion Background - Books Admin
  3. Religion Background - Discussions (Total Hours = 4.75)

    • Interaction - Discussions with Mike & Sylvia (1 hour)
    • "Interaction - Discussions with Pete" (2.5 hours)
    • Interaction - Discussions with Pete & Caro; Julie (1 hour)


Plans for the Near Future

In order to balance the books – and retain focus on my Thesis and Web-tools projects – I’ve reduced the planned effort back to 2 hours a week.
  1. Philosophy of Religion:
    1. Continue reading "Antony (Louise M.) - Philosophers without Gods: Meditations on Atheism and the Secular Life",
    2. Review "Oppy (Graham) - An Argument for Atheism From Naturalism".
    3. Continue reading the Blog "Ferguson (Matthew) - Κέλσος".
  2. Resurrection: Read "Knohl (Israel) - Messiahs and Resurrection in 'The Gabriel Revelation'" and associated papers.
  3. Background:
    1. Read appropriate items from Aeon8.
    2. Attend OBT Conference: “How to Read the Bible with Greater Confidence” on 14th April (Link).

Summary of Progress to Date

I’ve hived off the history to a separate document9, which still requires a major update.
