    Well, Michael, it is one thing to make an assertion. But why back off
    historicity so quickly?

    Are not Biblical stories that much more potent if they actually happened?

    The burden of proof lies on those who claim non-historicity.

    This is most puzzling. Christians who claim non-historicity are the
    ones building the Bible's reputation as a fable.
