Re: Why don't mythicists condemn Satanism?

I do have many more believing friends than atheist ones. I'm even married to a god-believer who regularly prays to that god. I actually have written about the good things that religion and faith has done for people. I even wrote of the benefits ex-cult members can take from their cult experiences. ...

Re: Why don't mythicists condemn Satanism?

"Mythicism" is an intellectual curiosity that is attractive to atheists more than Christians for obvious reasons. It is not a "plot to undermine Christianity". Intellectual atheist? Isn't that what they call an oxymoron? Perhaps Neil unwittingly exposed the true motive (plot) of...

Re: Why don't mythicists condemn Satanism?

My Bayesian Theorem probability in the (a)Historicity that @"John T" has a "Bayesian Theorem probability of Satan is 123.4%" with the correct application of valid historical evidence and no reliance on invalid historical evidence is ~33.3 for historicity and ~66.6% for ahistoric...

Re: Why don't mythicists condemn Satanism?

I have already dealt with Carrier's subjective misapplication of Bayes's theorem on this forum years ago. You can try to get me to go on your fool's errand but as I said before, been there done that. :tombstone: Using the method applied by Carrier, the Bayesian Theorem probability of Satan is 123.4...

Re: Why don't mythicists condemn Satanism?

So what is the valid historical evidence you adduced and/or that was applied? Your refusal to answer the original question is duly noted. I have already dealt with Carrier's subjective misapplication of Bayes's theorem on this forum years ago. You can try to get me to go on your fool's errand but a...

Re: Why don't mythicists condemn Satanism?

Mythicists are quick to demonstrate their condemnation for Christianity but for Satanism, not so much. What’s up with that? :scratch: You should first present your (a)historicity probabilities per all the valid historical evidence for a minimal historicity Satan and a minimal ahistoricity Satan. Cf...

Why don't mythicists condemn Satanism?

Why don’t mythicists condemn Satanism? A considerable amount of time is wasted on this forum by atheists and/or mythicists trying to disprove the historicity of Jesus. Seems to me they are going about it all wrong. Wouldn’t it be easier to discredit the tenants of Christianity by pointing out that S...

Re: Resource for Mythicist and Response Documentation

Yeah, and end game where nothing bad has happened to Christians. But I'm definitely the anti-Christian here. Don't forget it was you that challenged me on the other thread to expose your real motive and end game. I warned you that I was not like Ehrman and I don't mind giving a tit for tat. The onl...

Re: Resource for Mythicist and Response Documentation

Again, co-opting Jewish oppression for Christians, even though... no one here is proposing any violence against Christians... or Republicans. My solution is to try and convince them they are wrong, or at least overwhelm them politically so that their position loses viability. I have no desire to st...

Re: Resource for Mythicist and Response Documentation

Yeah it isn't ageist to note that eminent older scholars become complacent... especially when I can demonstrate where they do. Ehrman doesn't cite anything but English language texts... that alone is evidence of his complacency. Let alone that he cannot cite even those texts carefully, if he bother...
