Discussions there are ongoing.

FYI I have commenced a BA in Ancient History.

Perhaps people here might be interested in taking a moment to sign a petition to the British Library for the C14 dating of two of the most ancient bibles.

https://www.change.org/petitions/bri...ancient-bibles

Am I supposed to post in this thread forever?

If not, which is the appropriate forum to post this petition?

Thanks wolty.


Another question ... I assume I do not have the right to use the PM system. Is this correct?

This is wrong. I am still an active participant there. (See link below)

My research has (since 2008) been focussed upon
"Gnostic authors" as Post Nicene dissidents

Contention - that all of the non canonical Christian stories (eg: the "Gnostic Gospels and Acts, the contents of the Nag hammadi Library, etc) were not authored before the Bible was published by the Emperor Constantine. This mass of literature represents a literary reaction to the appearance of the bible in Alexandria c.325 CE, by [non Christian] academics and the usual "chorus of Greek atheists"

http://historum.com/ancient-history/...er-325-ce.html




FYI the reference to his ancient "chorus of atheists" is from here:
http://www.nytimes.com/2015/11/22/bo...arsh.html?_r=1


‘Battling the Gods: Atheism in the Ancient World,’ by Tim Whitmarsh

By REBECCA NEWBERGER GOLDSTEINNOV. 20, 2015



The period that Whitmarsh covers is roughly 1,000 years, during which the Greek-speaking population emerged from illiteracy and anomie, became organized into independent city-states that spawned a high-achieving culture, were absorbed into the Macedonian Empire and then into the Roman Empire, and finally became Christianized. These momentous political shifts are efficiently traced, with astute commentary on their reflection in religious attitudes.

But the best part of “Battling the Gods” is the Greek chorus of atheists themselves, who speak distinctively throughout each of the political transformations — until, that is, the last of them, when they go silent. If you’ve been paying attention to contemporary atheists you might be startled by the familiarity of the ancient positions.


The Greek atheists fell silent in the 4th century as a result of the Christian Church becoming the political instrument of Roman Emperors.



Feel free to ask any questions. I am in the process of getting a manuscript together for publication. It would be helpful to be able to express some of this stuff - especially the arguments for and against - in simple terms.



And BTW, compliments of the season to one and all. It used to be called the festival of the Saturnalia, and coincided with mid-winter in the northem hemisphere. Somewhere about 336 CE this festival was hijacked by the fearless leader of the Revolutionary Christian Roman State, Emperor Constantine, nicknamed by the common people as "Bullneck", to become the first time in political history that Christmas was celebrated on planet Earth.
