Price mythicism

Jonathan McLatchie recently hosted a webinar with reputed Christ mythicist Robert Price. Perhaps an actor was playing the role of Robert Price, the way actors play fictional characters. "Robert Price" is clearly a westernized variation on the mythical trope of the Eastern sage, like bearded Hindu Swamis, and aging Tibetan monks in kung fu flicks who dispense fortune cookie platitudes to a young apprentice. Price represents a stock character is B Hollywood movies. There is no historical Price. Robert Price does not exist!

  1. This reminds me of Steve's appendix 1 in The End of Infidelity. It's hilarious! You can read it on page 192 HERE AT THIS LINK. With Price's sense of humor, I think he'd actually find it funny too.
