How We Can Tell the New Testament Book of Acts Is a Fake History (and Why That Supports the Conclusion That Jesus Didn't Exist)
Richard Carrier: Drawing material from his soon-to-be-released book On the Historicity of Jesus: Why We Might Have Reason for Doubt (from the publishing house of the University of Sheffield), Richard Carrier (with a Ph.D. from Columbia University in ancient history) will survey the literary evidence that Acts is not an attempt at recording what actually happened at the origin of Christianity, but is a mostly fabricated story invented as internal propaganda. He will also survey the clues that remain indicating the original story Acts reinvents did not have a real historical Jesus behind it.
