Update on Metaphysica Site

The Metaphysica site will go down either late tomorrow(Friday) or early Saturday. New site will be at Heresiology.com. I expect to have the new site at least minimally up and running by Monday. See you there! 🙂



Welcome to what I affectionately call My Other Blog. My main bloc is here.

I have two passions in life, other than writing of course. One of those passions is religion, Christian theology with a special focus on Christian heresy – I am a bit of a heretic myself in more ways than one. I also am a theologian and am anthropologist. That is what my degrees are in. I have combined those two academic interests on my main site.

What I do here is indulge my other passion – an intense interest in politics in the broadest sense of the word. I look at current events, major and minor, and offer commentary and analysis colored by my academic training and my heretical beliefs. The focus on my main site is very tightly focused on the development of Christian orthodoxy in its battles with the heretics in the early centuries of the history of Christianity. My focus here is much more eclectic and diverse, running the gamut from the relationship of religion and science to Presidential elections to racism in sports to things I find just plain funny.

A Change in Plans [Updated]


I‘ve decided to name th other blog The Threshing Floor and make its primary focus my disucssions of Christian orthodoxy. You might want to read the lastest article on that blog – the link is in the right side bar.

I’ve given a .lot of thought to what I have been doing with my blogs, and, quite frankly, I am not really happy with the current situation So, until I get ahandle on what I really wa t to do with each of them, I am instituting the following changes: Continue reading A Change in Plans [Updated]

The archives transfer is done

All of the posts that I had on what is now the John Botscharow Marketing Journal site that were worth moving have been moved to the archives here. In a few instances, I left a copy on the Marketing Jornal site so they exist in both archives. One or two posts did not get moved and some got deleted altogether.

I started this blog back in January of 2007 at this location, so this is a homecoming of sorts. Because of the various changes in severs the last 18 months, not all the archives for this blog are available yet. I never did move asll of the archives from 2007 to my other servers. I think I still have them in a database file somewhere on a disk and will slowly add thoe best posts back into the archives here if I find the right file. There are some posts from 2007 that I would like to restore to this site. So keep your fingers corssed! Continue reading The archives transfer is done

Site news for June 22, 2008

I have successfully moved all the April, May and June 2008 archives from my other site, as well as all the article series excpet for one, the Heresiology series. I hope to have that one moved tomorrow. The article series are listed in the tabs at the top of the page in the recommended order you should read them. Each of the tabs, except the about me tab, takes you to the table of contents page for that series. Currently, the series are listed in the side bar under the pages heading, but that list will be removed once the Heresiology series is done. The only reason it is there currently is to help me buld the table of contents pages for each series.

Starting tomorrow, I will be posting to this blog every other day, probably on a Monday, Wednesday, Friday schedule and posting ot the Marketing Journal on a Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday schedule. I will keep the Sabbath unless seomthing important comes up.

For those of you who are not familiar with my work, I encourage you to browse the archives and to read the article series. Enjoy and let me know what you think.
