LOL.

It's been a year now and no serious refutation against me has appeared here, nor has anyone pointed to any scholar who refutes my case. Maybe it's time to look into the telescope.
Look, you're totally awesome, we're all just jealous. Since you're so so so right, can you stop loading up massive amounts of Bible text? This would save much bandwidth and eye work.

That won't work. Shesh gets mad when I just list a range of verses, he insists I give him the whole text to read.

Ha Ha, like you care what I think. We both know that is just an excuse because you like posting your huge and senseless walls of religious horse shit on this Forum.
It keeps you in the limelight and serves to stroke your ego.

Nothing you have ever posted has ever proven anything about these texts to anybody here, other than that you are willing to chop them up and edit them to fit them your personal predilections. Which is is certainly nothing new under the sun among quasi-religious assholes.

Good point.
By the time of my B. A. in History I had already realized that Andrew was the author of John (or just the Signs Source, as it turned out), so I wanted to study at the University of Wisconsin where I could study Aramaic. I didn't have the money for that so I settled on an M. A. in History. It turned out to be a liability, as it priced me out of the money for a beginning teacher.
So I went back to get a more practical degree (equivalent of an MBA) of M. S. in Accounting. By then I had two kids and wasn't desirable for a national CPA firm, so I had to settle with getting my CPA license with a local CPA firm. That left me out of the track for a major corporation, so my career became controller oR CFO of small businesses.

But a refund? I got my advanced degrees on the GI Bill as a Viet Nam-era veteran, back when public universities were cheap in California. So I didn't spend the big bucks such an education would cost today. Nor did my side-tracking prevent me from getting peer-review acceptance in 1980 for my major thesis of eyewitness testimony in John from Andrew for the Signs Source, Nicodemus for the Johannine Discourses, Peter for the Passion Narrative (revised recently to John Mark), and only the remainder from John the Apostle. I turned out to be too far ahead of my time anyway (apparently still am), so I probably could not have made a living with a career in Bible textual criticism anyway.

So because proffessionals didnt throw your unsupported idea out, we get hammered with this narrow unsupported against all scholarships view?

You don't have to read it if you don't want to. Apparently most members here already have tuned me out, now that they know that they can't refute me and can't find anyone else willing to get involved to try it.

I'm the one who has the legitimate beef. I was lured here under false pretenses. Doug Shaver had gotten a good impression of FRDB from his vantage point as an atheist, and he thought my ideas would get a hostile but fair reception here. I did not expect my thesis to be foolproof, and I would need to make at least some amendments based on exposure of some flaws. I still think there must be some flaws, but no one here has been helpful in finding them. I have received the benefit of spin's sarcastic leads to some good scholars (like Maurice Casey), but other than that the mere insults and carping have been of no use.

Sure enough, and not because of my case here, Doug Shaver left in protest of how unfair people are here to religion, even though he shares similar views. Me, I've got too much invested here now to leave.

I have a open mind

try this, as you have done the opposite so far.


short and sweet, get to the point in a very short paragraph. long post are not needed unless asked a specific question.



if you need to copy and paste large paragraphs to prove a point your reaching through to much imagination




you also try taking on to many unsupported topics at once as well

OK, then,
What did you think of my Post #8 on this thread? (My reply to Vork.)

Muratorian Canon
is 7th century, and carries zero historicity for this


You will need much more to even begin to attribute a Andrew.


Its almost factual there are multiple authors, but at the time of composition of only possible previous material, all authors are unknown for a reason. No one knows
