Re: Rules of Historical Reasoning

The New Testament authors used fiction and rhetorical prose for Jesus to fulfill prophecy in order to “prove” that Christians replaced Jews as God’s people. All in which they proselytized from previous Jewish text. And yet not a single Jew EVER denied this, and stated it was just a fictional charact...

I take it that you don't like the way Carrier follows the rules of Mark Day, yes?

Perverting the evidence out of context using late mythology far removed from the original text as Mr Muller has pointed out is not following the rules.

Re: sentenced to death for atheism’

It's obvious that your response to muslims in general is irrational and almost certainly based on media manipulation Lie, first hand experience with muslims from many countries, This dishonesty is desperation due to your intellectual inability to answer straight forward questions like, "Why does is...

Re: sentenced to death for atheism’

Before we unleashed sectarian chaos in Syria, christians had a reasonable life in the country. Armenians in Aleppo were well-off and happy. There were no beheadings. The only people tortured were for political reasons (just like Guantanamo). Everyone knew who the secret police were by sight. Despit...

Re: sentenced to death for atheism’

Perhaps not all muslims are evil as you conjure them to be. Comprehension and honesty are required here. I never stated such or implied such. I never stated all are evil. I have stated however that all are required to hold a high level of fanaticism and fundamentalism making the line/gap between mu...

Re: Rules of Historical Reasoning

You obviously cannot support your claim here that Carrier does not adhere to the basic principles of historiographical methods and you obviously have not read any works by historians that you are prepared to tell us about, period. . That is easily supported. He was never trained in biblical histori...

Re: Rules of Historical Reasoning

Again the historian who wishes to explore persons in Galilee in the 20s is greatly disadvantaged since not only do we have no primary sources at all, but even the secondary sources all derive from a common ideological bucket. The first gospel written was in dialogue, it seems, with Paul, and the ot...

Re: Dating of the Fourth Gospel: Nongbri

This reminds me of the late AchyraS using outdated crap to sell her feces.

Brent is off base. Physical evidence trumps educated guesses.

Nothing changes because of his work or lack of it

Re: sentenced to death for atheism’

You would be an idiot if you projected the actions of some onto all . And you would be an idiot for not knowing the levels of required fundamentalism and fanaticism in each religion.

Re: sentenced to death for atheism’

Your espoused views are simply deplorable. Knowing nothing about life in Muslim countries, you continue to spout nonsense concerning all Muslims. Your ignorance is outstanding. Your assumptions border on idiocy. I have family that are muslim, forced to this country by Islamic sectarian genocide. I ...
