Dominic – I noticed the inaccuracies/misunderstandings of the article’s argument as well. It made me realize how often I criticize other beliefs on the same basis – using reason, arguing without correct assumptions. For every point made in the article, I could rationally refute it. That, and the historical Jesus is impugnable (i.e. not a freak/cult leader/scam artist/etc). Which leaves the crux of discussion to one thing: faith. Do you believe Jesus is who he says he is, or do you not? The article’s conclusion is ultimately to reject Jesus as the Messiah, which, again, is a matter of faith and not reason.
