See how I tried it with Tangle, and his response was to be SNIDE in his comments.


I don't see that.

By what standard can you exclude the gospels, Acts, and Paul's letters as not being historical?


The same standard that we use to conclude that Ian Fleming's books are not historical.

WookieeB writes:

They were independent accounts of events that occurred in the first century and were extensively publicized.


Ian Fleming's books were independent accounts of events that occurred in the twentieth century and were extensively publicized.

WookieeB writes:

If there was any credible denial of the events, they would have been brought up immediately and been effective.


There was no denial of Ian Fleming's books because nobody pretended they were historical.

WookieeB writes:

Even enemies of Christianity of the time (your independent sources) did not deny many of the events that were reported.


Even Pravda didn't deny many of the events in Fleming's books. See above - nobody pretended they were historical.

So the standard is the same.
