With 99% of the population naturally willing to believe in something, atheists will remain the idiots in denial regardless of any “facts” they manage to muster.

Sucks to be an atheist.

The absurdities so many atheist types pull out of the Bible is a fulfillment of the warning against giving “that what is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine, lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.” (Matthew 7:6)

Good point - but in making that statement, I really wasn’t thinking about how Academia might respond. I was naturally imagining something that began with a shout of “Allahu Akbar”.

Self-proclaimed Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill has written a book in which he claims that Jesus was fabricated by a little-known group called the Flavians.

Why does this writer capitalize “atheists”?

Atheists as a group seem to be a lot more respectful of the desert pirate.

This author should have read “The Golden Bough” by Sir James Frazer. Among other related mythology and religious topics, Frazer writes at length about the “dying and rising” gods of many ancient culture as well as of the “scapegoat” used to purge a people of sins.

To think that the Roman elite thought up a “Jesus figure” is nuts.

The idea that Jesus was an invention of the “Roman CIA” as a pacifier religion is based on the genealogical research and conclusions based therein of Abelard Reuchlin in his book “The True Authorship of the New Testament”.

His theory is that the Romans “conspired” to invent a religion they will spend the next three centuries trying to suppress? Yeah, that makes sense.
