I'm not going to break down an entire list of silly things in the book just to pass the time; suffice to say it left an impression of some neophyte randomly flailing about hoping to stretch her liberal arts degree into a respectable career. Let's put it this way: she discounts the references from the Jewish historian Josephus on Jesus by claiming they're forged, and the references from the Roman senator Tacitus by calling all of his writings are forgeries written over 1200 years later. By the time you get through the typical Jesus myth story there's more forgeries involved than the mafia. Here's the kicker, though: nowhere in Roman or Jewish records of that time do you find anyone doubting the existence of Jesus, which is strange if you are being blamed for crucifying and killing a man who didn't exist.
It's fine if you've made your mind up, but frankly I doubt you've done one billionth of the research I have in the subject.
And I'll forego breaking down the laundry list of highly dubious claims, "evidence" and outright falsehoods that "support" the story of Jesus as factual just to pass the time.
I've had far too many of these debates and it always comes down to what sources you put your trust in. But if you dig deep enough, the roots of conspiracy and myth are exposed. Religious apologists have a vested interest in perpetuating their mythology. Religion/faith is a deeply emotional and highly profitable endeavor, and any attempts to shed light on the fraud and enlighten the sheep are met with vigorous resistance on both ends of that spectrum, and understandably so.
I have no animus towards the faithful, only towards deception.
And to presume that I've done little research relative to you regarding the subject of religion and its origins, in all its variations, is to presume way too much. You may continue to engage me in this conversation, but I said in the beginning that I wasn't interested in debating this topic. Despite my knowing better I replied anyway, and I can see that if I continue that I will be going down that familiar road. I've done it enough.
