    I do not consider Dr Moss was attempting to be "controversial". She merely puts forward an academic perspective on the issue.

    Furthermore, it is hardly surprising that Mr McDowell was unsuccessful in his attempts to verify the alleged "martyrdom of the apostles" given that those accounts appear to be little more than Christian pietistic fiction.
