Embarrassed by Mythicism/Antievolutionism

Embarrassed by Mythicism/Antievolutionism March 10, 2015

Have you ever wondered why the two New Testament scholars to write books directly tackling mythicist claims are Bart Ehrman and Maurice Casey, both of whom happen to be atheists?

I don’t think it is a coincidence.

As atheists, Ehrman and Casey have the most to be embarrassed about when fellow atheists uncritically embrace views that scholars in the relevant fields find unpersuasive.

It is the same reason that there have been far more books written by Christian biologists which try to persuade Christians to accept evolution, than there have been books by biologists who are atheists written with that aim. In that case, it is their credibility as Christians that is on the line when Christians show themselves to be ignorant and gullible in relation to science.
