Enjoy.

    I guess Greg Koukl just did a radio show covering the topic as well. Zeitgeist must be in the air.

    I just found that out as well. I thought his take was very good… even without looking at any of the Zeitgeist claims, it does not prove anything. That is, just because there might be a thousand fakes it says nothing of the truth of Christianity. Christianity rises and falls on its own historical merit – not on the historicity (or lack thereof) of some other myths. And that’s without even addressing the myth claims.

    But at any rate.
