No dog in this race but I'm going to watch this one. Should be a hum-dinger.

Might even get a bonus feature fight Kerry v Marty. My money is on Kerry.

Only 2 choices. Either we invented it or it is real. If it isn't provable, we can't say it is real

An interesting theory. I wonder what the quality of his evidence is and what other historians have to say about it.

Unfortunately historians have not been able to prove a magic person's existence.

Atwill's had a similar hypothesis for quite a while. He's not a pillar of the community in biblical scholarship so I doubt his evidence will be very weighty. If Roman aristocrats did invent Jesus, then the whole plan backfired badly since Christians ended up refusing to worship the emperor.

It could be the Norse gods stories if you want.

I'd never heard of him or any of this before but the blurb on that link aroused my suspicions. A brief googling of him turns up claims of kookism and rejection by academics. This doesn't of course mean that there may not be some truth to his claim but why has nobody working in the field turned up anything like it in the past?

I thought it was worth a look. It was my undergrad Roman history prof who sparked my skeptic spirit. I am forever grateful to him.

Isn't that what mostly happens with scheme's like these, blowing up in their own face?
