    As I said, the Gospels were written soon after the death of Jesus.

    1. The Gospels are witness accounts. They tell of events later generations could not have known.

    2. Coptic translations have been found in Egypt. Dated 50 A.D. at the latest. Every generation has different calligraphy.

    All you succeed to do is to repeat the mantra of semiliterate theologians. I have heard your mantra for fifty years now.
    Do not be tedious. Surprise me and come out with something I have not yet heard.

    Even the earliest was written decades after the alleged death of Jesus. Even Christian theologians admit that much.

    Of course, they are not witness accounts. By your logic, Homer must have witnessed the Trojan War.

    A lie.

    That is not how historiography works.

    Absurd!

    That's a proven lie.

    Please, surprise me first and come out with something I have not heard.

    Historiography never worked. People of historiography have said only inane things. They said Troy does not exist. They said Homer could not have witnessed Trojan War. Frank Calvert knew what they did not know. He was a consular official. Schliemann was not in the field of historiography either. Ventris found the key to linear B texts. He was an architect. It is only men and women like Schliemann and Calvert and Ventris who find things. Historiography is ludicrous exercise based on dusty old books that nobody needs. They are all throughly read by generations. Stop repeating the mantra. Didn't you hear what I said? Surprise me and come out with something I have not yet heard.

    I already said that the truth is found in the field of Coptic calligraphy. If you want to find absolute truth you can trust, go to Uppsala and enroll in the Department of Egyptology. Choose Coptic. Coptic is the last phase of Old Egyptian language. When you have learned to read Coptic fluently, go to Cairo and begin to study Coptic calligraphy. The study of changing styles of old handwriting is the most precise dating method of old texts. In those days, people used to write in hand. Calligraphy is therefore handwriting. The style of handwriting changes through time. You do not write the way your grandmother did. There is a school of historians who evaluate and date old texts through the method of evaluating the changing style of handwriting. This includes the study of old calligraphy. The original Greek or Coptic manuscripts of the Gospels do not exist. The oldest existing manuscripts of the Gospels are written in Coptic calligraphy. Of course the original Greek manuscripts were written long before the Coptic translations- right after the events.

    You can begin by giving me a book title and author.

    What book title and author? I have not mentioned any book, less an author. Books do not come by themselves, someone has to write them.

    I have read many books, but I have not yet read a book that has not been written. It is you who told me to name the author of an unwritten book. Is it I who plays dumb? Why you are so defensive? You call me a liar from now on? You already called me a liar, so it won't change anything.
