DC> Isn't myth-making so much fun!

MH> Do you have an answer for my question?

DC> Your little trip to Bethlehem is nothing more than a device plot

MH> The question hadn't been answered, and STILL has not been, so I will

It has been, Mikey.  You simply choose to ignore logic, as logic
destroys your mythology.

MH> ask you directly a third time. This time I will make it is simple as
MH> possible so you don't miss it (again.)

You were never good at making things simple.  Take a look at all
of the stupid analogies you have tried to make up.

MH> 1. The story of Mary and Joseph traveling to Bethlehem for a census
MH> comes from the Gospel of Luke.

BFD.  Got any independent evidence to support that?

MH> 2. The Gospel of Luke was first circulated among people who would
MH> know from experience whether that story was plausible.

It's not, Mikey.  You know it.  You just won't/can't admit to it.

MH> 3. They apparently found it plausible, since the Gospel was
MH> considered authoritative.

Circular reasoning, Mikey.  You should know better than that.
However, as it's your book that confirms itself, you, again,
cannot even admit that.

MH> 4. Why, if the story was so farfetched, did they accept it?

Why do you, other than the fact that the story requires the
travel to confirm itself?
