I've been given 6 facts about myself to share that might not be known.
1. I am a living Rorhshach inkblot upon which people project their greatest fears, or aspirations. I've been called everything from Jesus Christ to Charles Manson, or I suppose the ZZ Top would end the alphabetical listing, and Grizzly Adams comes before Jesus, too.
2. If you perceive the world to be idyllic, then you probably perceive me as "sanely challenged".
3 If you perceive the world to be currently flawed, yet full of potential for something truly wonderful for ALL of mankind, you probably will perceive me as completely sane.
4 The more rigidly you hold onto an unquestioned dogma, the more likely you will think of me as a heretic to that dogma.
5. I am an iconoclast.
6. I can still be the most charming and quick-witted man you will probably ever encounter, traits that don't come across well on such an impersonal medium.
And, for a bonus, as a drink cup I was given by some dear friends says "Sarcasm is just One of my many talents."

I wasn't sure what to expect, as the author, Bushby, and the theory of the bloodline of Jesus were new concepts to me, but the author does a clear job of exposing all sides to the story, giving Bushy a fair review of his work, while introducing the reader to the concept, theory, and conspiracy.
Mr. Loudermilk begins by addressing Mr. Bushby's agenda in his work, The Bible Fraud An Untold Story of Jesus Christ by Tony Bushby 2001 The Pacific Blue Group, INC Hong Kong, keeping in line with the author's own personal mantra, "every source has an agenda".
He continues through his review of Bushby's work by taking a close look at the scholarship, examining the sources Bushby sites and his handling of the information he gleans as presented in The Bible Fraud.
The essay reviewing Bushby's work ends with this quote from Mr. Loudermilk, "At the outset of this review, we were informed that Mr Bushby had encrypted a “sixteen-worded sentence ... extracted from the ancient Book of God”. This sentence reads LEARN DEEPLY OF THE MIND AND ITS MYSTERY FOR THEREIN LIES THE TRUE SECRET OF IMMORTALITY. This sentence is, also, plagiarized from Mr Hall’s magnum opus. Mr Hall, however, attributes this ‘ancient Book of God’ to the words of Poimandres, the dragon, to Hermes: “‘Learn deeply of the mind and its mystery, for therein lies the secret of immortality.’” giving an adequate summation of Mr. Loudermilk's critique of the work and a guide for any reader.
