    Satanism is a group of different philosophical and religious beliefs based on the focus on Satan. It was estimated that there were 50,000 Satanists in 1990. There may now be as many as one hundred thousand Satanists in the world. [[Image:Baphomet.png.

    A direct quote from the link BibleNewsRadio posted: “Did Josephus really write this? Most scholars think the core of the passage originated with Josephus, but that it was later altered by a Christian editor, possibly between the third and fourth century A.D.{18} But why do they think it was altered? Josephus was not a Christian, and it is difficult to believe that anyone but a Christian would have made some of these statements.{19}”

    There are also plenty of professionals who have walked ch by ch through Josh McDowelss books demonstrating many errors and asking him to respond which he never did

  5. I can see why Christian apologists like this book. It is well written, with lots of sensible advice in arguing wtih skeptics, and it was written from the heart.

    But the idea that some minimal agreed on set of facts makes the resurrection of Jesus the best explanation of history is just – bunk. In fact, it is pseudo-history, the way creationism is pseudo-science. It requires one to uncritically accept the historical value of the New Testament, and ignore all modern historical standards for evide

  6. Many things that Habermas presume as true concerning, for instance, the idea that most scholars regard the “empty tomb” as a fact of history, are simply false. Scholars are not nearly so unified on accepting many of the premises assumed. He presumes so many facts told us by the bible that he might as well just say “Jesus is risen because the bible says so” and save us some time and money.
    For reasons why the resurrection is not supported by history, and for other challenges to fundamentalist Chr

  7. The argument is a proverbial house of cards. The authors start out with some premises that they say just about everybody, even skeptics, agree with. Well, a lot of us don’t agree with them. Anyway, the authors then try to build upon what they say “everybody” agrees with, in a house-of-cards fashion. If this is true, then that must be true. And if this, then that, etc.

    I’ll give a very brief counter to each of the base premises:

    1) Jesus’ death by crucifixion;

    Most skeptics have agreed to this
