If found it highly risible that Norman Geisler would criticize fellow apologist Licona for “bad scholarship.” A few years ago Geisler published a critique of the volume The Empty Tomb edited by Jeff Lowder and Bob Price. His critique of my contribution (criticizing Peter Kreeft and Ronald Tacelli on the hallucination argument) was so spectacularly inept, that I am afraid that my reply was a bit intemperate. Readers of SO know that I usually am less truculent with critics, but sometimes, when the critic is not only biased but dumb, it is fun to be as nasty as you want to be. Here is my response:
Q.E.D. Seriously, does Geisler really think that by waving his hand he can nullify 200 years of New Testament scholarship?! If so, then, he only succeeds in showing what a bizarre cloud-cuckoo-land that he and his fundamentalist ilk inhabit.
