Time to wrap up my effort at making up miracles.  Were you curious as to whether I was still alive or struck dead, as I pretended my computer had threatened  ?  Whatever your reaction to my “resurrection”, I’m back in business.  But not with a vengeance, just a determination to continue blogging as long as I can – physically and mentally – at whatever frequency I choose, and as long as I have something pertinent to say about religious credulity.  You better believe it !

                                       RIDENDA      RELIGIO

P.S.  I was flabbergasted to see that some readers actually believed my concocted story about my computer self-typing a death-threat by remote (or divine !) control.  I don’t know if it’s even technically possible (it is NOT – theologically), but apparently it is as least credible.  (Maybe I should write a techie thriller, or, better, a “Dan Brown”.)  I thought I had made the account sufficiently over-the-top as to be taken for the joke that it was, or was intended to be.  I guess that after Donald Trump, Kellyanne Conway and Sean Spicer we are ready to believe just about anything.  Sorry.

BTW (ugh !), after “Angels and Demons” and “The Da Vinci Code”, Dan Brown wrote a third saga of the adventures of my favorite “symbologist”, “Inferno” (click “Inferno”on “Search” to read my earlier post on the book).  The movie version, I recently discovered, has someone talking about “counterfeit reality”.  Did this inspire Conway to create “alternative facts” ?  The question constitutes a veritable scoop – no one has ever asked the question.  Then again, readers of this Blog have learned to be surprised at nothing they read here, a blogosphere mine of nuggets you’ll find nowhere else.  Had you ever heard of a self-typing keyboard before reading my recent posts ?  The Donald has no monopoly on blowing his own Trump-et.
