Jesus never existed


So says the film, THE GOD WHO ISN'T THERE, by ex-fundamentalist Christian Brian Fleming.

One of the "experts" who appears in this "documentary film" is folklorist Alan Dundes of UC Berkeley. On March 30, 2005, Professor Dundes made a heart stopping discovery that caused him to abruptly put aside his research. And thus began the myth of THE PROFESSOR WHO WASN'T THERE.

These people are nothing but petty ideologues. NO decent, secular historian denies the historical existence of Jesus. Some funny green plants are lighting up in Berkeley.

The film's central claim is utter nonsense, of course, but uneducated people can and will be misled nonetheless. We owe them a defense. All Christian denominations -- Catholics in the forefront -- ought to be rushing to refute this piece of deception scene by scene.

It's probably not coincidental that Beyond Belief's leaders are ex-fundamentalists, veering from one irrational enthusiasm to its polar opposite.

Maybe we can get some of those anti-Da Vinci and Left Behind writers on the case; this is bound to make the news sooner or later, then the TV specials will come...

True, it is likely significant that these were once fundamentalists; it's easy to see how people can react poorly to their constant obsessing about the identity of the antichrist, the rapture, Bushism, etc..
