    This lecture says nothing about the strength of evidence of the historical Jesus over the historical Mohammed and everything about the partition that exists in the minds of religious apologists in promoting their God over their neighbour’s.

    Bannister’s segment on the historical Jesus makes repeated reference to the “context” of First Century Palestine, Jesus conforming to Second and Third Temple Judaism and the ignition of a “resurrection-shaped bomb” is exposed as baseless assertion next to Smith’s confident presentation of hard archaeological and scientific evidence which shows Islam as the man-made fabrication, plagiarised from the two preceding monotheisms.

    Similarly, on the moral implications of the Islamic texts, Smith states that Mohammed’s taking ‘Aisha as his wife while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old would not be considered paedophilia at the time, this isn’t a model for mankind today.

    Rather like Abraham almost making a human sacrifice of his son Isaac (Genesis 22)?

    Or Moses ordering the slaughter the Midianite boys and the enslavement of the girls (Numbers 31:13 – 18)?

    There is absolutely no circular, unintelligible padding about “context” or “scholarship” or “the early Islamic movement”. It is a flat-out admonition of the text at its face value of exactly the type I as an atheist of all religions would make.

    Hard and fast proof that we are atheists in respect of most of the gods that humanity has ever believed in; some of us just go one god further.
