Not because Carrier is a bad writer, but fuck me the entire subject of Jesus historicity is vomit inducingly stale and uninteresting.

Agreed, but since the rejection of Jesus' existence is also a rejection of the academic method, I'm glad there's people with the will to keep fighting it (since I can find no way to engage with mythicists and their "agnostic" fellow-travelers -- they won't even offer an alternative methodology they want followed -- I've long given up).
