History Is Not Unknowable

"If we cannot know anything about Jesus then we cannot know anything about the Caesars, or Plato, or Alexander the Great, or anybody. Forget the Dark Ages...modern technology doesn't actually really resolve the problem...records can always be destroyed or manipulated, images Photoshopped, or the truth buried...Historical skepticism is a universal acid, destroying everything it touches."

Andy Bannister, The Atheist Who Didn't Exist, p. 217
