    The Discovery Institute: Pretending to be Scientists since 1995.

    Is there one of these for mythicism? Smaller audience, but would still make the appropriate point.

    • I don’t think there is, but there should be. I may make one, unless someone else wants to do it…

      • The Eh’theist

        I don’t know that I’m qualified enough to pick out 24 tropes, or I’d offer. But if you do the content, I’ll lay it out.

      • John MacDonald

        Matthew 11:19 says ″The Son of Man came eating and drinking, and they say, ‘Behold, a gluttonous man and a drunkard, a friend of tax collectors and sinners!’”

        The fact that Jesus’ critics said they saw Jesus going around getting drunk, being a glutton, and consorting with cheats and sinners, while it doesn’t prove Jesus was doing these things, it does imply Jesus’ opponents thought that Jesus was not a heavenly mythical deity, but rather a person walking around on earth and doing stuff.

        • I love it when, despite your penchant for seeing everything as literary invention, you show that you grasp historical reasoning of this sort!

          • John MacDonald

            As with most amateur internet bible enthusiasts, I am doing my best to wade through the sea of misinformation of the mythicists and fundamentalists to develop an opinion for myself. I first took an interest in bible studies by reading Price’s stuff, so it’s still growing pains to see past his point of view.

    Mythicist Bingo: “Must not teach New Testament religious studies at an accredited university.”

      On the other hand, another possibly fruitful position could be to argue with Dr. Barrie Wilson (author of “How Jesus Became Christian,” http://www.amazon.com/Jesus-Became-Christian-Barrie-Wilson/dp/0312361890/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1458485890&sr=1-1&keywords=how+jesus+became+Christian ) that the mythical Christ of Paul was one interpretation of Jesus in the ancient world, which was at odds with the portrayal of the human Christ in the later gospels:

      “Many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh; any such person is the deceiver and the anti-christ.” (2 John 7)

      2 John is an important work. See what it says about love. Love isn’t just a warm feeling. It’s tied into keeping Torah, walking in God’s commandments. Sounds like it’s aimed against Paul’s position.
