Having spent so much time blogging about mythicism, I felt I would be remiss (or is that remyth?) if I were not to share a few last links that have come to my attention.
Joseph Hoffmann recently touched once again on the existence of Jesus and the Jesus Project. And although the Christian CADRE blog is clearly apologetic in its aims, in their recent post on this topic they seem to be more honest and accurate about the relevant sources and the views of historians than the mythicists I’ve interacted with.
I also want to share links to Neil Godfrey’s latest posts, since they illustrate nicely why attempting to interact with mythicists is probably, ultimately, a waste of time. In one post he even engages in something as childish as switching around elements of my name, calling me “Garth McJames.” Yet he is offended that I don’t take the views he is “defending” (but has yet to present a case for) seriously. He also keeps claiming (falsely) that I have not actually read anything by mythicists.
But then again, it is still not clear that anyone seriously questions the existence of Jesus.
