So first, the back story. A few weeks ago Bart Ehrman wrote an article for the Huffington Post dogging on historians who think Jesus was just a mythic figure, never even a real, ungodly person. Richard Carrier caught wind of it and proceeded to go positively hulk on Ehrman. Reports suggest that Ehrman walked funny for a week.
Then Patheos blogger James McGrath leaped to Ehrman’s defense, causing Carrier to once again draw scholarly steel. It was another entirely one-sided evisceration that ended with a hardly disturbed Richard Carrier dusting off his shoulders and walking away from the pile of shreds that used to be his opponent’s arguments.
Remind me to never piss off Richard Carrier.
