A post like this is long overdue. Throughout my personal journey that has led to the creation of this blog, I’ve encountered several “kindred spirits,” so to speak, along the way who have all made significant contributions toward making this website possible. (It should go without saying that this does not imply that they all agree with everything that is written here at Mythicism.) So I’d like to take this time to show some appreciation and to recommend that you all go check out their work.
First and foremost, I think I owe the most thanks to my long-time friend in the ‘mythicist’ community- James Hiscox, author of James Hiscox Blogs. James by far has been the most reliable and supportive comrade over the years as we have gathered, shared, and dispensed our research on this topic. As good a guy as they come.
Another fellow WordPress blogger fighting the good fight for ‘mythicism’ is Derreck Bennett, author of Atheologica: Subjecting Religion to Critical Thought, as well as Atheomedy: The Sacrilegious Rants of a Godless Bastard. I had never met another poor soul so cursed with an unhealthy fervor to “geek out” over comparative mythology as much as myself… until I met Mr. Bennett. His OCD for source citation rivals my own and has proved very useful for adding even more data to the bibliography of this blog here at Mythicism.Net.
Also be sure to check out his book Addictus: A Nonbeliever’s Path to Recovery, available now on Amazon.
Jordan Day, co-author of Ē Odos: The Path to Learning Greek, has made invaluable contributions to the content of this blog through his help in translating some obscure primary sources which, up to that point, I hadn’t seen available in English anywhere on the internet.
The same can also be said about John F. Felix of Digital International Atheists Group.
Nicholas Covington, author of Hume’s Apprentice, has been very supportive in helping spread awareness of my website-
-as has Joseph D. L. over at Early Writings: Biblical Criticism & History Forum.
A rising star in the ‘mythicist’ community is one Derek Lambert, co-host of the MythVision Podcast, who brings some much needed charisma & energy to what is usually a community composed of introverted nerds, such as myself.
Last, but certainly not least, I owe much gratitude to a fallen sister-in-arms, the dearly departed Dorothy M. Murdock. She was a trailblazer for this community. It was her work that had the most significant influence in shaping my views on religion & mythology into what they are now, and by extension, has influenced my views on life in general as well. R.I.P. Thank you for everything.
