My friend and colleague Ron Fritze has posted a really interesting blog on what he learned from attending a conference of a group called Ancient Mysteries International. He explains that this is a group of people who are interested in and who are largely believers in fringe theories about the past. The meeting, held in Fort Wayne, Indiana, offered an interesting experience that Ron said “did nothing to change my mind about the essential wrongness of these theories, but it also helped me to put a human face on the people who promote these theories and the people who believe them.” His report on the experience is here. Check it out.
