Carrier vs. Ehrman, round 2

I like Bart Ehrman.  His other books are good.  I just can’t fathom why he’s so suddenly changed gears and seems to be letting his emotions cloud his judgment.

He finally posted a response to Rick’s critique of his book for the whole world to see.  This is good.  It’s what he should’ve done immediately instead of initially dismissing it as ad hominem when it was obvious that Rick had given a substantive reply

His efforts, though noble, have earned Ehrman another roundhouse from Carrier.

Richard Carrier is good at what he does: making solid arguments, chock full of facts, and helping others to learn in the process.
