Welcome to Shake-Speare’s Bible.com.
Our topic is Shake-speare’s Bible. The one he owned.
Really. No joke.
To learn what that means, please visit the “about” page.
Every once in a while, we diverge to consider other topics in intellectual history — lately, the intense and exciting developments in online news and debate over the resurgence of “Cold Fusion” energy production, hailed by Gerald Celente and many others as a new industrial revolution “in statu nascendi.”

The enduring mystery of William Shakespeare, poet and playwright, has become a little less mysterious.
It may be that we can never fully plumb the genius of our ever-living Bard, but that doesn’t mean we shouldn’t muck around in the basement. You never know what you’ll find down there.
Witness: We now have in our possession the long hypothesized ‘lost works’ of Edward de Vere, Seventeenth Earl of Oxford. Oxford has been regarded by heretics and assorted lunatics as the true author of the works of Shakespeare.
This myth can finally be laid to rest. (more…)

The Alien Scientist strikes again, covering the recent Jan. 2014 MIT “Cold Fusion”/LENR course led by Dr. Mitchell Schwartz and Dr. Peter Hagelstein. A classic and classy introduction to the “state of the debate” on what may well be the most important technological/scientific question of our age.
A sobering lesson in the long history of “you mean we got that wrong?”

The Wit and Wisdom of the Sage of Denton County: Tom Reedy's Internet Poster Comparing Charlton Ogburn to Chico Marx.
While the “Public Relations expert of Denton County” was exercising his creativity by designing internet graphics phrenologically comparing the late Charlton Ogburn, Jr., to Chico Marx, I was corresponding with the Folger’s chief manuscript curator Heather Wolfe, PhD, about the “signature” on the title page of the library’s second copy of William Lambardes’ Archaionomia.
At the same time, in a move that reminds me of the military genius of the late Colonel George Custer, Oxfraud Facebook admins decided to promote the Archaionomia title page into the new banner for their discussion group. (more…)

- Rafe Spall, playing Mr. Shakspere in Anonymous, is Lifted to Fame by the Anonymous hands of his bardolators.
No mention of the annotated Folger copy of Archaionomia would be complete without considering the alleged “signature” (which, though murky, reads “W Shakspere”).
This Shakspere inscription constitutes one of those “facts” that have been argued both ways – it’s existence has been noted in print by certain orthodox scholars, with caveats as to it’s authenticity (after all, there have been many examples of faked signatures and other writings of Shakespeare). So, it appears from time to time in the Authorship debate as an example of a “possible” 7th authentic signature, with the “possibility” emphasized, and the caveats downplayed (though mention is typically made of the caveats, for cover, in case the falsehood of the signature is ultimately proven).
