Re: Himmelfarb

Most of the e-mails I am receiving are along the same lines:

I believe that there is a difference between the groups that Himmelfarb uses

and the scourging of the alleged son of God. (I consider myself to be an

atheist.)

and another

The reason the thought experiments don’t work in [Himmelfarb’s] piece is that, for

Christians, this is the event on which all history hinges. Have any of the

incidents that she mentioned had nearly the amount of voluminous writings,

controversies, and “passion” surrounding them as the life, death, and

resurrection of Jesus Christ?
