Blog Help Request

Dear readers:

I'd like to add a sidebar feature that displays clickable book thumbnails that take one to amazon.com to look at or purchase books (inclusive 'or'). Any helpful advice would be greatly appreciated.

Yours,
EA

If you're already an amazon.com associate, then what you need to do is login, find the books you wish to link to, copy the html code for the book ad, and then:

Login to blogger.com

Amongst Choices of 'Posting' 'Comments' 'Settings' and etc. Click on 'Design.' Then go to 'Add Gadget' and choose 'HTML/Javascript' and drag the box labeled 'HTML/Javascript' over to the side of the page. Then click 'Edit' button on the HTML/Javascript box. Then you shoud be able to copy and paste an amazon code.

Thanks very much for your help, AIGBusted. I have now added a booklist in the sidebar.

Best,
EA

Glad I could help.

By the way, I'm writing a rebuttal to Timothy and Lydia McGrew's Bayesian defense of the resurrection. If you are familiar with Bayes' Theorem, I could really use some help in making sure I have my numbers straight.

I've gathered together the facts I need, so I just need to make sure I'm not confused on which values to plug in where. I *think* I have it right, but I'd like to make sure.

I'm not the best person to ask about the finer points of Bayesian reasoning, but perhaps (ahem) some readers of this blog could offer their assistance.

Btw: My own two cents on the McGrew's argument and those of their ilk: even if we grant arguendo that the evidence they discuss raises the probability of Christian theism above 1/2, the evidence for Jesus as a failed apocalyptic prophet (which is the mainstream view) deflates that probability right back down to at least 1/2 (or closer to zero, or so I would argue).
