16. Afrocentric Ideology and Church History

One of the most influential voices for Jesus Mythicism in the Afrocentric movement has been Walter Williams whose The Historical Origin of Christianity is a staple reference for Afrocentric mythicists. It does not seem to matter that Williams is clueless concerning history and his accusations are wild conspiracy theories that have their basis not in history but his own imagination. In Afrocentrism and Church History: A Critique of Walter Williams’ “The Historical Origin of Christianity”, Albert McIlhenny exposes the many blunders and baseless claims in Williams’ book and leaves the reader questioning not only the academic rigor of Williams’ supporters but their sanity as well.
