Apparently, however, it is my agnosticism about the historical Jesus that really ticked John off: "Vinny you are like every other atheist I have met who does not think Jesus existed. You have cookie cutter mentality. If I do not fit the mold you will find something to criticize me for if you can."
My response to that comment was evidently the straw that broke the camel's back:
John,The next time I returned to John's blog, I found that I would not be allowed to post any more comments. I have been banned from the blogs of some conservative Christians, however, this is the first time that I have been banned by an atheist.
I do not in fact believe that Jesus did not exist. I am agnostic about the historical Jesus. I don't think it really matters whether the historical Jesus existed or not because I think he has been too thoroughly mythologized to be recovered either way. I think that historicists overestimate the strength of their case and underestimate its vulnerability. However, I think that mythicists generally do the same thing.
I do find the discussions of mythicism interesting and I enjoy participating in them to test my own thinking and understanding. I have generally tried to be polite although I realize I can be a smart ass sometimes.
I think you are completely overreacting to my comment. If it's not too late to vote on whether you should take some time off from counter-apologetics, I think I might vote yes.
I regret this because Debunking Christianity has always been one of my favorite blogs, and as far as I can tell, I have not violated any part of John's Comment Policy. However, I guess it is just as well that there is one less internet site that I will have reason to waste time on.
I was gratified to see that John has decided to take some time off from blogging. I don't know whether it had anything to do with my suggestion.
