HISTORICITY OF JESUS - RICHARD CARRIER

4/2/2020
The assumption that Jesus existed as a historical person has occasionally been questioned in the course of the last hundred years or so, but any doubts that have been raised have usually been put to rest in favor of imagining a blend of the historical, the mythical, and the theological in the surviving records of Jesus. Historian and philosopher Richard Carrier reexamines the whole question and finds compelling reasons to suspect the more daring assumption is correct. He lays out extensive...

1926; HOMICIDE IN AMERICA - DAVID KULCZYK

4/1/2020

The number of allegedly normal people senselessly committing ghastly murders in 1926 is astounding.
