ARGUMENT FROM UNIQUE AGREEMENT

1. The Editorial Board for The Journal for the Study of the Historical Jesus "disagree on just about everything when it comes to Jesus and the sources pertaining to him".
2. All The Board agrees though "that (1) Jesus existed and (2) people who deny his existence are cranks or bad-historians".
3. Therefore, Jesus existed.
Judge: In the case of HJ verses MJ, your witness Mr. Bird:

Bird: We disagree on just about everything when it comes to Jesus and the sources pertaining to him. However, what we all agree on is that (1) Jesus existed and (2) people who deny his existence are cranks or bad-historians.

Judge: Mr. Carrier?

Carrier: No further questions your Honor. The offense rests its case.

ARGUMENT FROM LOST ENDING OF ARGUMENT

ARGUMENT FROM LOST ENDING OF ARGUMENT

1. A fragment from the Gospel of Mark has been discovered.
2. This fragment is almost certainly from the first century according to a world renowned papyrologist who is not a fundamentalist.
3. This means that the original Gospel of Mark was written during the lifetime of Jesus' disciples.
4. In 2018...
5. Therefore Jesus existed.

Argument from hate

1. Ashiests hate Jesus.
2. You can't hate something that doesn't exist.
3. Therefore, Jesus exists.
"It is useless to attempt to reason a man out of a thing he was never reasoned into."...Jonathan Swift
