Atwill’s Cranked-up Jesus

You know it's a bad history about Jesus when Richard Carrier won't even touch it: Atwill’s Cranked-up Jesus | Richard Carrier Blogs:
Joseph Atwill is one of those crank mythers I often get conflated with. Mythicists like him make the job of serious scholars like me so much harder, because people see, hear, or read them and think their nonsense is what mythicism is. They make mythicism look ridiculous. So I have to waste time (oh by the gods, so much time) explaining how I am not arguing anything like their theories or using anything like their terrible methods, and unlike them I actually know what I am talking about, and have an actual Ph.D. in a relevant subject from a real university.
