Atheist hating on Joe Atwill By Andre Austin Richard Carrier, an atheist, is hating on the masterpiece works of Joe Atwill striking a blow at the mythology of the New testament. Jesus ministry was turned into a parody of Titus military war campaign against the Jews from 66-73AD written by historian Josephus. In my opinion Jesus is a composite of many of the Jesus’s mentioned in the War of the Jew. In a debate carrier had in 2014 he dates the Gospel of Mark to after the War of the Jews was written because he believes Mark based his Jesus in the NT after Jesus Ben Ananus. Why slam Atwill who says the same thing but on a larger scale. Mark 13:19 is almost an exact replica of Josephus preface 4:12 to War of the Jews. Then if you take the entire chapter of Mark 13 it’s a plagiarized lift of Book 6 chapter 5 of WOJ. You can’t be walking around mad and jealous of other people’s ground breaking work, but give the thumbs up and support. Its time to stop this heresy and start tipping their hats to the man who took the clothes off of this enigma of lies called the New Testament. Or be a real man and get into a public debate, one on one.
