    I live in the town where Ehrman teaches, and I would only be exaggerating slightly if I said that half the books in the 200 section of the public library were authored by him.

    When your conclusions are assumed as fact and set in adamantine, like they are here, interacting with you gets tiresome fast.
    Talk about ironic.

    You then made 14 additional posts that had nothing to do with Nero, or anything on topic, but were your standard anti-Christian bigot jackassery.
    Just going with the flow, as were you.

    You're thinking of WL Craig wittering on about physics when he's unqualified to do so, he's a philosopher/theologian, whereas even Dr Ehrman's "pop-level" books are still within his area of expertise

    Severe sarcasm noted and possible cynicism toward Bart. I live nearby too and actually know him. He is a well respected scholar.

    Tiberius and Claudius have had a fairly bad press as well. The Julio-Claudians - IOW, Augustus to Nero inclusive - are the Caesars usually picked on as unstable.

    "Chuck" has a very vivid imagination!
