  1. That’s not quite the meaning of viral. Sites like Raw Story and Salon grab other syndicates’ stories all the time. They are cheap content for these content mills. Viral is like this blue-white-gold-black dress thing.

    I checked Facebook shares on the three sources’ pages. It is performing above average, but not anything special. That said, for the angle – religious debunking – it’s a huge hit.

    1. Since it’s very easy to do (and I’m killing time til the whistle blows), I looked at Facebook shares from the “Share this” button for Vridar since January 1. Fresh Evidence: The Forged Jesus Passage in Josephus wins by a mile. 257 Facebook shares. The next two closest are 35 (http://vridar.org/2015/02/08/evidence-for-a-pre-christian-christianity/) and 26 (http://vridar.org/2015/01/12/the-ostrich-war-on-mythicism/). There were only a couple of others above 10. You’re welcome.

        1. If you want more hits for Vridar, like us on Facebook and ask your friends to like us, too! It seems to be helping to bring more readers to the blog.
