Who the hell is Richard Bauckham?
He's written a book called Jesus and the Eyewitnesses: The Gospels as Eyewitness Testimony. Anyone know anything about the book and the guy who wrote it?

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

Never heard of him.
The book is a few years old, and he's not an historian. He's writtena lot, and obviously he's a believer. But I may try to find it, and see what he says.

Insufferable know-it-all.Einstein God has a plan for us. Please stop screwing it up with your prayers.

Here's some video he's in.

It seems his reference to eyewitnesses is via Papias letters and papers. Um, from the second century.

I think a lot this stuff is written for believers, it's not intended for people that want a serious treatment of the subject matter. They play a PR war, perhaps to fleece the flock.

You'd be surprised how quickly people will gobble something up if it supports their world view.

I remember reading something on Facebook a while back. A fundamentalist friend-of-a-friend posted something to the effect of "More and more scientists are speaking out for intelligent design. They cannot deny the existence of a Creator."

I mean, I'll certainly grant her that more and more are getting publicity, thanks to the DI and AiG, but it's not like the acceptance of creationism is increasing in academia the way she's saying it is. Stir in a healthy dose of "atheist scientists are suppressing the true evidence and are trying to kill God!" to get a conspiracy of persecution. The fundies love that shit.
