||Former music minister Dan Barker has paraded himself both as a prominent Christian pastor turned atheist and as an expert on why Christianity is wrong. Among other things, he has argued Jesus never existed. In Quoting Barker: A Critique of the Jesus Mythicism of Dan Barker, Albert McIlhenny shows that while Barker may be truthfully relating his ignorance when he was a Christian, his move to atheism has not done much to expand his horizons. The methodology is the same – he just plays for a different team. In examining his articles, books, and debates, Barker is proven to have done little but repeat the pseudoscholarship of others when discussing the historical Jesus. Whatever it is Barker may be selling, expertise is not part of the package.||
