Walking home from university the other day, I met a theology student from a local Christian collage. Initially I blew him away and told him Jesus was a myth, the bible was worthless and I did not believe in magical flying sky beings. But... the little shit was persistent and he spoke good English.
He asked me why the bible was worthless and so I asked him "Who wrote Matthew, Mark, Luke and John. He actually told me it was the apostles. I didn't think they made them that stupid any more. I directed him to the page in the bible that told him the authorship was unknown. He was surprised and asked if I would be willing to sit and talk with him. He he he he he ...... I think he wants to practice his English. So talk about what? He did not know. So I suggested, the existence of Jesus.
So. this coming week is midterms but the following week he will give me a call and we will go to a coffee shop and discuss the existence of Jesus. Bart Ehrman and Richard Carrier have just become my best friends. Who else is out there with research based objections to the existence of Jesus?
