Do (Supposed) #parallels between the #Gospels and #Pagan #myth prove that #Jesus was based on pagan #gods?
Um, #NO, and both the #Titanic and #EdgarAllanPoe will show you why:
Jesus Mythicists try to find any parallel between Christ and pagan gods in order to prove that Jesus was based on pagan myth, thus never existed. This is an idea that has been around for 300 years, yet it has never become the academic consensus. Indeed, Jesus Christ is recognized
as a historical figure by historical consensus.
Jesus Mythcists’ appeal to Parallelomania is faulty on logical grounds. For one, most of these so-called parallels are not really parallels at all (as Numerous people, including myself, have noted elsewhere). Two, just because a

Wat aparte conferentie #changingfacesofchristianity gisteren met oa. @brianmclaren en @StefanPaas. Persoonlijk denk ik dat er meer uitgehaald had kunnen worden en dat komt omdat alle acteurs behoorlijk in hun rol bleven zitten.
@brianmclaren was inderdaad vooral verhalen aan het vertellen en deed minder aan reflectie en theologische bezinning. De setting, in de #foundationuniversity, migratieachtergrond, zou oproepen tot het vertellen van verhalen over het christelijk geloof in Amsterdam.
Daar heb je gewone pinksterkerken, migranten-pinksterkerken, post-pentacoastals zoals Samuel Lee, Catholic Workers, hippe stadschristenen, new monastics, traditionele gemeentestichters, hillsongers, expat kerken, en protestantse pioniersplekken. Ik heb die verhalen gemist.

A great piece explaining the history behind

“The Menace of Political Correctness” claremont.org/crb/article/th…
The problem is, despite a detailed history, the article

from @ClaremontInst fails to call it what it is....

POLITICAL CORRECTNESS is CULTURAL MARXISM.
Worse, @ClaremontInst FAILS to provide any solution.

We are left with:

“What is to be done? Probably not much. One can only hope that political correctness will go so far as to make evident its absurdity, as @AOC Green New Deal has made alarmist environmentalism seem absurd...”

La leyenda urbana de que todos los relojes en Pulp Fiction están parados a las 4:20 es falsa. Algunos sí, pero no todos ni mucho menos. Hay relojes importantes en la trama que ni de cerca.

#Titanic's captain was seasoned sailor Edward J. Smith.
The building of #Titanic at Harland & Wolff shipyard in Ireland was major event. Here is one of her anchors.

“Six Chinese guys made it off the Titanic alive, and 24 hours later were written out of the story. That wasn’t an accident. That was deliberate.” The documentary, “The Six” reclaims this untold story. scmp.com/culture/film-t…
Too often, when I advocate for casting PoC in films, the naysayers rant about historical accuracy—that PoC didn’t exist in such and such event, time or place. But how many PoC stories, like six Chinese survivors of the Titanic, have been erased or untold?
And which stories *get* told in Hollywood? I am still waiting for feature films on the WWII incarceration of Japanese Americans and the murder of Vincent Chin.
