Anyway…I’ve listening to the interview that Amateur Exegete (AE) did with The Non-Alchemist and what I’ve been hearing is…well, so far…pretty typical stuff. I did realize that I am waaaaaaaayyyyy older than both of them, but that’s neither here nor there. It’s an interesting interchange with some points that need a more thoughtful response to than I want to get into here.
Here’s their discussion for those interested
What I did want to do here is, because AE did mention Marcan Priority, which is a textual theory with regard to the formation and writing of the gospels—something I discuss here, and introduce my own theory here—is look at the fact that theories, whether in the hard sciences or the soft science of textual criticism, often have problems that get downplayed by the promoters of those theories.
