This is a blog to discuss philosophy, chess, politics,

I am not sure how that proves that the anonymous author of our first gospel really was Peter's secretary?
Walter,It isn't supposed to prove that. It undermines an argument against that claim.If you're looking for positive evidence regarding Mark, then for starters you might want to check out Irenaeus, Adversus Haereses 3.11.8, Tertullian, Adversus Marcion 4.2, the Muratorian Canon (missing its beginning but clearly referring to our four Gospels), and the use of distinctively Markan language in Polycarp's Letter to the Philippians 5:2.
Dr. Tim McGrew, (the Tim above), actually wrote the passage about Marco Polo and Ulysses Grant, that is featured in Manata's post.
