The Big Debate -- Price versus Ehrman

The Big Debate -- Price versus Ehrman
This Friday:

https://www.eventbrite.com/e/mythinforma...9701931006

Even the $30 tickets are too pricey for me (let alone the travel), but I am looking forward to the video release.  Hopefully, they won't make a DVD and then charge for that.

So, who will "win" ya think?

I imagine that Ehrman will trot out all of his "there must have been oral tales" horseshit which was the basis of his book?

It's ended.  Evidently, it was lived streamed.  I'll try to post a link when (and, if) someone uploads a copy to YouTube, but the recording someone made with their webcam is of too poor of quality to post here.

Personally I'm not a fan but if you're going to hang around in ermine, you're going to have to pay the price.
God(s) and religions are man made and the bane of humanity. 

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. Ozzy or Twain/take your pick

To his credit, he does donate all of his debate monies to charity (probably, "less expenses" though).  As for money, I would rather donate on my own than have Ehrman do that for me.

I'm not quite done with Ehrman's book Jesus Interrupted, but something is getting screamingly clear:

"Christianity" is not even remotely what Jesus had in mind as the end result of his ministry.

Not a particle. Not a doubt. Period.
 The granting of a pardon is an imputation of guilt, and the acceptance a confession of it.

The problem there is that there is no evidence that jesus ever did or said anything.  No matter how many times Ehrman raves that "there must have been" he is wrong.  Jesus is no more necessary to xtianity than Quetzalcoatl was to the Aztecs.

The debate costs money, sorry.  You can read the YouTube comments for yourself to see some alternatives to get at it.  I leave it to your conscience and/or lawyer to decide if the video is truly a copyrighted work or not.
