Hello there everyone, I must say that while i am grateful for the work Acharya has done and I regularly recommend her books Christ in Egypt and others... I was somewhat curious as to what articles she has published in regards to peer review. I realize she has been doing this work what... a little over 20 years? I am kinda curious to gloss over any articles she has published under some esteemed archaeological/theological journal.

Peer review can be a great thing when the process isn't contaminated with various biases, prejudices and a priori assumptions. The major sciences seem to have a handle on it. However, when it comes to the subject of religion very little is actually seriously peer reviewed in any meaningful way because so much is open to interpretation. So, often times we end up with christians reviewing christian books and atheists reviewing atheist books. When theists and atheists review each other's works, you're on your own to decide who is right. So, in the end the clamor for "peer review" on the subject of religion isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Here's why ...

Just look at how academia fails to be objective about a "historical" Jesus or the case for mythicism for example. The organizations such as the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) and American Academy of Religion (AAR) etc that are SUPPOSED to examine religious texts with a critical eye have no intention of putting that spotlight where it really needs to be - on the "historical" Jesus and case for mythicism. They refuse to take seriously the case for mythicism or the mythicist position - that way they can ignore it as explained here by Earl Doherty

Dr. Robert Price, a Jesus Seminar fellow with a Ph.D. in theology and biblical studies, points out that academia simply cannot be trusted on the most controversial issues that really matter:

Quote:
"...As for this tiresome business about there being "no scholar" or "no serious scholar" who advocates the Christ Myth theory: Isn't it obvious that scholarly communities are defined by certain axioms in which grad students are trained, and that they will lose standing in those communities if they depart from those axioms? The existence of an historical Jesus is currently one of those. That should surprise no one, especially with the rightward lurch of the Society for Biblical Literature in recent years. It simply does not matter how many scholars hold a certain opinion."

- Dr. Robert M. Price

Here's an IIDB thread discussing the Society of Biblical Literature (SBL) not committed to critical study of the Bible?

Here's what it says at Wiki about peer review:

Quote:
"Scholarly peer review (also known as refereeing) is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (and often narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform impartial review. Impartial review, especially of work in less narrowly defined or inter-disciplinary fields, may be difficult to accomplish; and the significance (good or bad) of an idea may never be widely appreciated among its contemporaries. Although generally considered essential to academic quality, and used in most important scientific publications, peer review has been criticized as ineffective, slow, and misunderstood"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer_revie ... eer_review

Quote:
"One of the most common complaints about the peer review process is that it is slow, and that it typically takes several months or even several years in some fields for a submitted paper to appear in print"
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer_revie ... eer_review

As concerns Acharya S, who's going to "peer review" her work with an objective eye? What scholar has a Ph.D. in astrotheology? NONE! There's no course for it in theology, biblical or New Testament studies. Neither astrotheology nor the case for mythicism is a requirement for NT students in order to get their Ph.D. Acharya's work covers a wide variety of disciplines such as archaeology, astronomy, archaeoastronomy, mythology, history, biblical & textual criticism etc. So, on the subject of religion our best "peer review" will be found in books from opposing sides but biases, prejudices and a priori assumptions must be kept in check - and always consider the source. With rampant credentialsm run amok these days one must be cautious even with Ph.D. scholarship as there are certainly biases, prejudices and a priori assumptions run amok there too.

So, Acharya is NOT very interested in submitting articles to these so-called establishments like the SBL and AAR because she feels like it's an utter waste of time as they've made their position clear that they are not interested in astrotheology or the case for mythicism. I'm also reminded of the failure of the Jesus Project. Until that changes, our best peer review comes from book reviews, blogs, articles and comments from others that Acharya S NEVER had to pay for like so many others do. John Loftus at the Debunking Christianity blogspot comes to mind with his book titled The Christian Delusion: Why Faith Fails. When I see all those blurbs for his books I quickly get the impression that they were paid for either by Loftus or his publisher. People do often get paid for these things because reviewing a book means taking loads of time away from working on one's own projects; so it doesn't mean it's always a bad thing. However, you're obviously not going to get paid for a negative blurb or review.

Acharya did get published for an article titled, "In Search of Religion's Rosetta Stones," a 3 part series article published in The New Archaeology Review also posted at her blog in 2006

And here

"Bone-Box No Proof of Jesus"

(NB: This article was published in a three-part series in the magazine Secular Nation, at the suggestion of Dr. Robert Price, who called the series "fine articles." Secular Nation had never published a three-part article before.)

Christ in Egypt: Reviewed by Dr. Robert M. Price

Earl Doherty review of Christ Conspiracy

And many more but here's a few brief blurbs

"Your scholarship is relentless! ...the research conducted by D.M. Murdock concerning the myth of Jesus Christ is certainly both valuable and worthy of consideration."
—Dr. Kenneth L. Feder, Professor of Archaeology, Central Connecticut State University, Frauds, Myths, and Mysteries: Science and Pseudoscience In Archaeology

"I find myself in full agreement with Acharya S/D.M. Murdock... I find it undeniable that...many, many of the epic heroes and ancient patriarchs and matriarchs of the Old Testament were personified stars, planets, and constellations..."
—Dr. Robert M. Price, The Pre-Nicene New Testament

"I can recommend your work whole-heartedly!"
—Dr. Robert Eisenman, James the Brother of Jesus and The New Testament Code, RobertEisenman.com

"Acharya S deserves to be recognized as a leading researcher and an expert in the field of comparative mythology, on a par with James Frazer or Robert Graves—indeed, superior to those forerunners in the frankness of her conclusions and the volume of her evidence."
—Barbara Walker, The Women's Encyclopedia of Myths and Secrets and Man Made God

"I've known people with triple Ph.D's who haven't come close to the scholarship in Who Was Jesus?"
—Pastor David Bruce, M.Div, North Park Seminary, Chicago, HollywoodJesus.com

"Thirty years ago, when in divinity school, I might have had second thoughts about becoming an Episcopal priest if a book like D. M. Murdock's Who Was Jesus? had been available to me."
—Bob Semes, Retired university professor of History and Religion, Founder and Executive Director of The Jefferson Center

"Ms. Murdock is one of only a tiny number of scholars with the richly diverse academic background (and the necessary courage) to adequately address the question of whether Jesus Christ truly existed as a walking-talking figure in first-century Palestine."
—David Mills, Atheist Universe

"Thank you, Acharya, for the important work you are doing. Who Was Jesus? Fingerprints of the Christ just might be the best short introduction to Biblical scholarship yet."
—David Bergland, 1984 Libertarian Party Presidential Candidate, Libertarianism In One Lesson

"...I have found her scholarship, research, knowledge of the original languages, and creative linkages to be breathtaking and highly stimulating."
—Rev. Dr. Jon Burnham, Pastor, Presbyterian Church, Houston, TX

"Acharya S has done a superb job in bringing together the rich panoply of ancient world mythology and culture, and presenting it in a comprehensive and compelling fashion."
—Earl Doherty, The Jesus Puzzle

"The Christ Conspiracy—very, very scholarly and wholly researched—is a book for today..."
-Rev. B. Strauss, ex-Catholic Priest, Chicago, IL

"Amidst the global chaos of George Bush's War on Terror, largely founded on religious intolerance and simplistic notions of good and evil, Acharya S is the voice of reason."
—Joan D'Arc, Paranoia

"D.M. Murdock could well be the most brilliant, insightful and rigorous theologian writing today."
—Robert Tulip

"Acharya S is the ranking religious philosopher of our era."
—John K.

"Acharya S/Murdock deserves an award for her hard work and courage. She is the Galileo of our day!"
—Charles Johnson

"Acharya S knows more about the ancient Mysteries than any living scholar."
—Christopher Knowles

"Acharya S is an amazing researcher with a tremendous amount of energy and appetite for constant discovery of newer horizons. "
—Dr. O.P. Sudrania

Do atheists disagree with Acharya's basic premise?

Preachers, priests quietly embrace the Christ myth

Dubious Archaeology and the Anunnaki

Another reference to my work appears in Encyclopedia of Dubious Archaeology by Dr. Kenneth Feder, the skeptical American archaeologist who can be seen in many documentaries by NatGeo, Discovery and History Channel. Ken has written skeptical/scientific textbooks dealing with "pseudoscientific" claims such as the ancient aliens theory of human creation and civilization. You will see him as the debunker on these various shows, and his books are used fairly widely in college and university courses dealing with these issues, which include:

America's Stonehenge
Ancient Astronaut Hypothesis
Atlantis
Bat Creek Stone
Bosnian Pyramid
Cardiff Giant
Cayce, Edgar
Chinese Discovery of America
Crop Circles
Grand Canyon Lost Civilization
Hancock, Graham
Ica Stones
Lemuria
Moundbuilder Myth
Newark Holy Stones
Noah's Ark
Palos Verdes Stones
Shroud of Turin
Sitchin, Zecharia
2012
Von Daniken, Erich
And many more...

Note that some of these issues I discuss in the "Evidence of an Ancient Global Civilization" chapter in The Christ Conspiracy. Some of the information there is not as scholarly as I would like, because of the scientific advances since the time of publication, such as the DNA studies. For the new edition of Christ Con, therefore, I am removing that chapter and using it as the basis for a later publication, refining the information based on as scientific an analysis as can be mustered. In this regard, I will be communicating with Dr. Feder and other professional scholars.

In the index of Feder's book, I am listed as "Murdock, D.M., 244." Turning to that page (244), we discover a discussion of Sitchinism, in which the Sumerian gods are believed to be "ancient aliens." Feder cites the work of Middle Eastern language expert Dr. Michael S. Heiser's critical analysis of Sitchin's Sumerian interpretations. He next says:

Quote:
And how about the Anunnaki? What do the Sumerians have to say about them? Well, according to Heiser, nowhere in any Sumerian (or Akkadian or Babylonian or Assyrian or Hebrew or other ancient) text does anyone say they arrived in spaceships or rockets or from another planet or that they wore spacesuits or had laptops, cell phones, iPods, or iPads. As scholar D.M. Murdock (2010) points out, the ancient Sumerians were quite clear in calling the Anunnaki gods or spirits, guardians of the gates through which the sun passes. To maintain that they are extraterrestrial aliens from a planet whose existence not only cannot be proven but cannot even be accounted for by the laws of physics (its gravity would have a measurable impact) is to apply twentieth- and twentieth-first-century sensibilities to an ancient religion. It just doesn't work, no matter how many times Sitchin repeats it in his 13 books.

In the bibliography of the Encyclopedia of Dubious Archaeology appears the following reference:

Quote:
Murdock, D.M. 2010 What about the Anunnaki? Truth Be Known. http://www.truthbeknown.com/anunnaki.htm

It should be recalled that Feder also read Christ in Egypt and said the scholarship was "astounding."

Also, there were at least two articles of mine published in The Journal of Higher Criticism, which used to be run by Dr. Darrell Doughty at Drews University before his passing in 2009. Bob Price was his partner on that effort, which included articles by many biblical scholars.

Without doing further research, I can't recall exactly which articles of mine were published in the JHC. Obviously, these journal articles were peer reviewed, I'm guessing by both Doughty and Price.

In addition, my work is discussed by Dr. Michael Lockwood, both in his book Buddhism's Relation to Christianity and other articles such as his "shoot of Jesse" paper. He provided me with the latter, and I don't know if it has been published anywhere.

I have done a very lengthy review of Lockwood's Buddhism book that I will be publishing in 2013. Lockwood's book is full of primary sources demonstrating key Buddhist themes in common with Christianity, along the lines of what I have discussed in my previous works. I consider this book one of the most important in the large body of mythicist literature, which is why I spent so much time on it.

It should be noted that Lockwood taught philosophy in India for 30 years and knows the culture there very well:

Quote:
Prof. Michael Lockwood taught philosophy for thirty-two years at Madras Christian College, South India. His research has been mainly in the field of Indology. With his colleague, professor Vishnu Bhatt, he published, in 1994, Metatheater and Sanskrit Drama followed in 2005 by its second, revised and enlarged edition. Also, in 2005, the two colleagues published another work on classical Sanskrit drama: Charudattam: Torso of a Masterpiece . A few years earlier, in 2001, Dr. Lockwood, together with several colleagues, brought out the book, Pillava Art. Now, in retirement, Dr. Lockwood has devoted several years to the present study of the relation of Buddhism to Christianity.

We can add the new Erhman rebuttal book to the list, since both Frank Zindler and Bob Price edited the articles therein, including my two contributions.

Image

Also, my review of Buddhism's Relation to Christianity was in turn peer-reviewed by both Drs. Michael Lockwood and Christian Lindtner.

Three myths about scientific peer review
http://michaelnielsen.org/blog/three-my ... er-review/

Peer Review and Biblical Studies Scholarship
http://larryhurtado.wordpress.com/2013/ ... holarship/

Peer-review
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peer_review

Quote:
If Peer-Review Does Not Work for Science Why Does It Work for Biblical Studies?
http://vridar.org/2013/10/15/if-peer-re ... l-studies/

"The editors of the ACP Journal Club find that less than 1% of studies in most journals are “both scientifically sound and important for clinicians”.

We have little or no evidence that peer review ‘works,’ but we have lots of evidence of its downside.

Peer-review does not detect errors. Again numerous studies have demonstrated this. Papers have certain errors deliberately inserted into them (mixes of major and minor) and are then sent to peer review, and the rate of detection of those errors is so often very, very low indeed."
