      Hum, it wasn't as long ago as I thought. It's the April issue (they
      *will* always send these things almost a month early). The entire
      article is titled "Faith and Reason" by Michael Ruse. Ehrman's
      piece within it is 'Literalism', if you want to look it up...or I
      could just send you this copy. I'm sure my husband would never miss
      it!! ;)

      I look forward to your review. Um, could you tell me how to
      pronounce 'Tchacos' so I don't hear 'Codex Tacos' in my head?

      You know, Gerrrryyyy, if you ever finish any of these projects (that
      I have somehow pirated for all of my lesson plans), I'd love to use
      a couple of photos in my classes. No pressure.

      Since I used the Lascaux site, I avoided the issue entirely--no
      hands, but therin lies the Shaft of the Dead Man (their favorite)
      who, according to their excellent vision and imaginations, is
      naked. Frying pan into the fire.

      I need more info: what surface, what location, how authentic. I use
      terrible paint with students, for legal and health reasons--washable
      tempera. Almost edible, it's so safe. Consequently, it's useless.
      My best advice with whatever you use: Don't inhale. :)
