Do You Believe Everything You Read?

On the Jesus’s wife mania:

The ancient world was as well stocked for crazies as the modern.  If you were to collect random scraps of paper from our modern age, and accepted all of them as true, you would certainly come to the conclusion that people in the 21st century were regularly kidnapped by space aliens, that men never walked on the moon, and that 911 was a CIA plot.  Imagine if someone in the future discovered a scientology text.  How embarrassing would that be?  So one possibility is we’re looking at the 4th century equivalent of scientologists.
