I doesn't take long to get some real power with them and I would not like to get hit with a slung stone
Best learnt on your own far from windows and such like
2nd. We do have contemporary accounts of crucifixion being used by roman prefixs as a form of punishment. Proof can be pointed to. We can infer that Pontius Pilate may have used this tactic. That being said I would still like to see at least one journal entry or letter showing that Pilate resorted to this tacit himself.
You have to understand I have no deep rooted personal or emotional attachment to this.
Historical figure or not doesn't have any sort of bearing on my beliefs overall.
I just have yet to be presented with anything that I find compelling enough to Oh yes I see it now.
As I have yet to find it myself
There argument as I have seen comes down to well he was mentioned by these two secular Roman historians and they where right about a lot of other things.
I don't find this overly compelling since both historians postdate the writings of Mark.
Also it is a true scouts man because of the inclusion of "serious" thus making it impossible for me to site a historian that agrees with my point as they are then not "serious"
More productive would have been you asking a question instead of thinking it was a fallacious statement.Quote:

Here after poking around the internet I came across rational wiki which echos a lot of the same stuff I have said. Please pick it apart and call out the fallacies, I am interested in hearing the other side and getting to the "truth".
Here's an easy example:
A serious historian is not going to argue Ann Frank's Diary existence proves all war crimes, stories of survival and horrors, during World War II, must have a detailed written record.
A serious historian is not going to build their argument based on a logical fallacy.Quote:
Letters where still written, journals where still kept, records where still kept. The fact is despite the fact this stuff happened a really long time ago these things are still found. It is one of the reasons we have a fairly good understanding of Rome. The followers of Christ being Jews where also most likely literate.
