now nuts and bolts
explain this away historicists
ooooh damn, i can't paste that much text in here it is against the laws of nature
just buy the damned book and read it
actually i recommend the audiobook as well. Carrier reads it with an excellent tone and you can do other stuff while you listen.
PS: i just got a new Acharya S book as well, awesome! That magnificent Lady may have left us way too soon, but her books are still kickin' ass
i challenge every historicist to read Acharya, Carrier, Price, Doherty and Campbell and Kuhn.
then come back and tell me why mythicism sux
PPS: i'll distill some essence from Carriers book and post 'em up as soon as i get time.
