RE: forged origins of the new testament
This does not jive one bit with the current scholarly consensus. Furthermore, we have copies and fragments of gospels predating 400 ad.

Then all the alleged works of the church fathers of the second and third century which quote the books which became the NT must also have been invented. Quite the conspiracy theory. Consider

I disagree about the non-Pauline literature being "forged". That belies an ignorance of ancient letter writing. Just because he didn't actually write them, doesn't mean they are what we would call "forgeries".

Quote:In conclusion, Orsine and Clarysse chastise biblical scholars for embracing unsupportably early dates for their manuscripts:

There are no first century New Testament papyri and only very few can be attributed to the second century (P52, P90, P104, probably all the second half of the century) or somewhere between the late second and early third centuries (P30, P64+67+4, 0171, 0212).
