I think anyway. I could be wrong. Google has failed me before.

... Er? You know who OP is Huh 'Cos OP declined to answer my question, instead blathering on about how I'm a slave to experts educated under a corrupt system or some such drivel Rolleyes

I'm awesome at Google.

And yeah, about 95% sure that's our guy. Like I said, though, I've been wrong before.

RE: Atheists are no better than Christians
But anyway OP, I don't have any need to care about Atwill now. If he *is* out of the top drawer and he fights the good fight with academic consensus then in 40 years time or so his theories will gain acceptance and that'll be bully for him Smile I don't need to go rushing after every crank who comes up with a pet theory, I can just wait for academia to filter them out Drinking Beverage

Well, I don't know who he is. I just know he's not someone who's very good at hiding his anonymity.

If you only knew half the stuff I know about people here. Big Grin

Nah, it's my job to keep an eye on everyone. I keep most everything to myself... except a few things that don't risk people's anonymity... just let's them know, I know.

You just don't want to repeat your strawman attacks and would rather ignore the evidence and write the whole thing off. That is just a cop out.

What straw-man attacks?

So not only do you go with an OP that tells atheists what atheists think (which is pretty much the best way around here to make your rep turn red) but now you are making assumptions about my position.

How do you know that I'm not in agreement with Atwill?

I don't think you are really interested in your invented 'generic atheist's' opinion ... just interested in expressing your own.

Fortunately for Atwill, his marketing team is much more professional and accomplished at the persuasion-game than are you.

Your approach seems to have been designed to turn everyone off to Atwill's ideas.

Perhaps you are working under cover for the pope?

Atwill doesn't play games; he just presents honest evidence. It may seem like everyone is getting turned off, but that's because that they don't like to think for themselves. Please provide a link to your previous discussions/opinions if you don't wish to repeat yourself. From the previous topic I saw that you watched the documentary, which provides a good overview, but that isn't sufficient to form an opinion unless you followed up on the "Flavian Signature" part that Atwill references from Josephus and the New Testament. Even if you agree with Atwill, how do we know that you've looked at the evidence and understood it?
