Stack Exchange employs me as a Community Manager. I've been known to respond to jericson@stackexchange.com.

You can read about what I've done over the years in my curriculum vitae.

On a personal note, I'm married and have three children. Our oldest son loves school, friends, games, and reading. (He can't wait to get on our LEGO® Answers site, but he's not quite old enough. My posts there are usually at his request.) Two of my children happen to have been born on the same day. I sometimes write about that experience.

Don't have time for a full review of something? Why not try my 5-second reviews?

Occasionally, I write a post for Eschewmenical.

comment Is the person who “denied the faith” in 1 Timothy 5:8 still a believer?
@Richard: That seems all-to likely. I wonder if we could find a source for that...

comment How should graded numerical parallelism in Hebrew poetry be understood?
I'm sorry Bob, I really don't buy any of this. Plus the answer fails to addresses my question. Why does the author use progressive numerical parallelism? If it's about the Trinity, why are there four things, not three?

comment Does base-10 numbering in Genesis 4:24 argue against the Wiseman hypothesis?
It's clearly not literal, but I don't see how any of this answers my question. The passage doesn't say 70*7 for instance. For another, Jesus says exactly the opposite of Lamech. You have some good ideas, but this answer is a miss.

I think you are correct about Roman law with the proviso that if Jesus threatened to start a popular revolution he'd be crucified.

comment Does 1st Kings say that pi = 3?
That's a lovely rabbit hole you made me jump down. ;-) The article mentions that to an engineer, π ≈ 3, which is a pretty good summary.

comment How does the Noah's Ark narrative relate to the Gilgamesh flood account?
Thank you for reference to the Wiseman hypothesis. I've read a variation of the theory, but did not know where the idea originated. Looks like a have some reading before me.

comment Did Jesus have the legal authority to cleanse the temple?
This is a fine question, in my opinion. It's certainly different from my question, which just assumed Jesus would not have human authority to drive off the money changers and sellers.

Dur... Old Testament, not New.

comment How many people were involved in the Exodus?
On #3: are there any hints this should be taken in a "mythological" sense? Genesis fits into the creation-myth genre, but is there an exodus-myth genre? It just seems like there's so many trappings of history in the majority of the Torah it would be hard to take it as anything but a historical account.

comment How many people were involved in the Exodus?
I see you don't actually answer the question, but provide three options. ;-) #2 is the one I'd be most interested in exploring, myself. #1 is the "safe" answer for most believers.
