Biblical scholar claims Jesus was a fabrication
"American Biblical scholar Joseph Atwill will be appearing before the British public for the first time in London on the 19th of October to present a controversial new discovery: ancient confessions recently uncovered now prove, according to Atwill, that the New Testament was written by first-century Roman aristocrats and that they fabricated the entire story of Jesus Christ. His presentation will be part of a one-day symposium entitled "Covert Messiah" at Conway Hall in Holborn (full details can be found at http://www.covertmessiah.com)."

Calling Atwill a 'scholar' is a joke.

You live under a rock ? This has been discussed to death here.

RE: Biblical scholar claims Jesus was a fabrication
Why are you so harsh on him? He is a rather new member, who wants to share something with us and this is how you treat him? Plenty of threads are just repetitions of what has been posted before, so what?

A couple people creating repeated thread after thread on the same topic has become a problem on this forum in the past.

There's reasons threads are kept open to continue and filled with like topics, ideas, and conversations. It helps things run more lively and smoothly that way.

RE: Biblical scholar claims Jesus was a fabrication
But it is newbie-unfriendly. And a forum should be welcoming to new members.

I really do not care if you have talked about a topic already. You do not have to contribute to this thread, if you do not like to. Maybe rampant wants to talk about this topic again, and maybe there are other members, who did not have the chance to talk on this topic. Maybe they want to venture to another direction than what was discussed previously. Do you wish to take this away from them? Are you seriously suggesting to silence a thread because there is a similar one? Please...

You have a very defensive attitude for no reason.

It's far from silencing anyone, it's rather suggestions. If you create a thread also without any personal input, purely a quote and link, you're not demonstrating an open format

If someone wonders why they're not getting a thread to work as they thought they would, there's answers to be given that are meant to inform.

RE: Biblical scholar claims Jesus was a fabrication
Different people have different ideas and perspectives, or might want to have an argument on a different basis or different intellectual level (that you might not be familiar with). The way one topic was discussed or is being discussed might not appeal to a person, urging or necessitating him to re-open the topic under different premises.

Telling that person to use the search function and effectively hushing him up is a great disservice and an intellectual offense. In conclusion, I don't think that I am overly defensive but rather inclined to think that you do not comprehend the extent of intellectual infringement that your suggestions indicate.

I am sorry, rampant, that this thread of yours was spoiled so early on. I hope that your next thread will be received with more tolerance and respect towards your person and intellect.

RE: Biblical scholar claims Jesus was a fabrication
Atwill is an Internet billionaire (millionaire?), not a Biblical scholar.

If you want to find refutations of him by actual Biblical scholars, read Richard Carrier article. Carrier has a PhD in ancient history, and is an atheist.
