Re: is it all interpretation/s?
Berfore these posts get to long I think i can bring things into perspective
You can't...
with a simple observation
It won't be simple...
pay very close attention to what i am about to say
It's hard to follow your ramblings...
Ill demonstrate in a moment
You won't...
Now pay even closer attention.
Ok...
If you are allowed to use non-human source/ evidence to establish the inaccuracy of say Josephus, (in your opinion)ie, it doesnt appear in the earliest texts, this or that, then it would follow logically that the accuracy, in the other direction with which are able to pinpoint the reliability of the earliest sources, has to be accepted as corroborating evidence
No it doesn't follow... I can barely follow you.
You cant eat your cake and have it.
IOWs they faithfully transcribed from sources which were just as reliable
There is no evidence as to how reliable they were.
Then of course we have the earliest church fathers testimony, writings that substantiate these facts
Perfect example of confirmation bias.
Berfore these posts get to long I think i can bring things into perspective with a simple observation
You did none of that...

Re: is it all interpretation/s?
When you actually want to make this into an argument you just let me know
An argument? Are we married? How 'bout you just provide some evidence as to how reliable they were? Calmly. No yelling. Nicey nicey.
