G. A. Wells And That
Old Josephus Chestnut
I am currently mired in an email debate with a Christian antagonist friend of mine, and he has brought up the old chestnut of the writings of Josephus as historical evidence for JH.Christ's existence. Would if be OK with you if I quoted from your page refuting this 'evidence'?

I have no problem with that. The source for the information is, for the most part, the G. A. Wells' books which I think are mentioned. Remember that only the more dishonest Christian apologists resort to the Josephus ruse, and that most Christian scholars throughout history have written this part off as fiction from the Eusebius era.
