Well, I beware of Greeks even when they bear gifts.

The atheists get, and got, where they do by assuming a no-supernatural view of reality. Any sort of spiritual sense is slammed as confirmation bias. Even a false conspiracy theory is a step closer to truth than atheism is.

Who wouldn’t be skeptical of someone who throws crap against a wall to see if it stinks?

a little-known group called the Flavians

Little known?

Oh yeah, Vespasian, Titus and Domitian are total unknowns I mean they were just Emperors.

Good grief.

A) Be skeptical when anyone comes out as a ‘self proclaimed’ anything. Ask yourself if you would have your heart operated on by a ‘self proclaimed’ surgeon.

B) I find it hard to believe someone who has a degree in computers but finds the historicity of Christianity ‘interesting’ has uncovered documents overlooked by millions of scholars over the ages.

C) So, the Romans invented a messiah to draw people into a new, more placid faux religion... and no doubt drew even more people as they brutally slaughtered Christians and fed them to lions, and they no doubt would encourage an atmosphere of benevolence toward themselves by stating that they had killed the messiah! Wow, these Romans were masters of the psyop. This plan was airtight.

There's no such thing as Darwin. He was invented by a cabal of Illuminati Elitists to keep idiot students and college professors in line.

Don't tell me there's "pictures" or "written proof" of a "historical Darwin". I'VE never seen him, you'll have to produce the man in person for me to believe in him.

MY personal scientific theory is that Charles Darwin is based on Santa Claus. Now college professors and so-called "intellectuals" will tell you that Santa is a myth and Darwin was a real person...MY theory is that it's the other way around, that "Charles Darwin" was created Agnostic Monks to counter the joy and fun that comes from Santa Claus at Christmas.

Good grief, what is it with Americans? I dont want to be critical guys, but is there a problem with the water supply over there? Are you all really this paranoid?

I know that a lot of you are (rightly) suspicious of government but really, this preoccupation with conspiracy theories is getting way over the top. It's bad enough that a double digits percentage of the population honestly believe that 9/11 was an inside job and that NASA never landed anyone on the moon, but now we got this kook making up complicated conspiratorial ideas about the Roman government, 2000 years ago, conducting some kind of subornation operation on Judaism? This being the same government that regularly derided the social upheaval caused by Christian ideas on recipricol obligation and systematically massacred them in immense numbers over the next two centuries - but really they were all on the same side? And this is pretty much completely based on Jesus' famous quote of "render unto Caesar"? Did this guy consult any theologians - you know, people who are expert in this kind of thing - before he wrote his book?

The depressing thing is that in spite of the contention of the article's author, some people are really going to be convinced by this.

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.

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.

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”.
