Maybe you could be explicit about what you are suggesting, Maryann. That God deliberately addled the minds of the authors of the Gospels so that they would omit certain detail?

So there are details included in some of the Gospels that are not included in others. There are also details that are common to several or all. There are not a few details that directly contradict each other (What is God's purpose in those, I wonder?) And, doubtlessly, there are details of Jesus' life that were omitted from all the Gospels altogether. This would be the case in any account of an event recounted by several people. If you ask people to describe a party they attended last week, you'd find the same thing. Another miracle, you think?

This has to be one of the most desperate attempts at apologetics I have ever seen. Really scraping the bottom of the barrel. For this, people can get a full professorship?
