I like the way "redactor" is used. It isn't PC to call it fraud and forgery. <smile>

Yes. I do.
I think whether an earlier source was used is not especially relevant -- and impossible to know. But I know "Luke" was a sophisticated writer and likely would not have carried the 1st person plural pronouns over from the earlier source or inserted them himself.
The effort is too clumsy for that writer. Ehrman admits it is a clumsy effort but, in essence, says that is irrelevant because the effort succeeded.
I think it is relevant and suggests a clumsy redactor, similar to the redactor(s) who -- successfully -- added the jumble of 1rst and 3rd person, as well as singular and plural 1st person narrative to John 21:24-5. We *know* that was a late addition by a clumsy redactor that was successful.

Hello,
Hot nymphs, Irish vagabonds, Vidorian legends, Chess-playing jurists, Catholic pugilists, Hip Diagnoses, Spiritual guides, wolves, witches, and dumb-ass Christer snitches, how is everything in the hippest, coolest, most Xcntric, most eclectic, most electric, most ridiculous, meticulous, vertiginous, solicitous, ambiguous, solicitous, religulous thread on the tubes? I see WINLAC's little mascot, Beijar's Beyotch, is still wandering and waxing poetically about how he has to spend so much time worrying about how much time he has to spend so much time worrying about how much time he has to spend so much time worrying about how much time mac nymphs.

Sad day when Clownie can best you.

I suspect the original author is not the fraud -- in this instance. Not that it matters much, given his willingness to swipe earlier sources,....
Which he readily admits in his opening lines.

I admire his candor on that.

Okay, now I'm confused. Am I important or not? It isn't really necessary that I know, but I'd like to.

There are 5 little grandchildren and 1 little grandchild who think I'm just more important than hot grits on a cold morning, but I need a stranger to tell me why I'm important.

All you had to say was no...:) Have a nice evening...
It is a fundie trait to say that you must have hit a nerve or that people are obsessed with you because they answer your posts.

The entire purpose of Topix is for people to write something, then have others respond. Yet you take it as a victory when someone answers one of your inane posts more than once.

It's a victory of nothing, but you'll take it because real life sucks so badly for you that you can't get anyone to answer you even once in the world in which you actually have to live. Anonymity is such a blessing for those like you.

Who is phillonic ansd Augustenian?
No hippie here!
This post proves one thing: You can absorb and vomit out the indoctrinal things you read/hear, but have no clue about anything else.

Philonic. One 'l', not two. Look up Philonic Judaism. Then look up Augustinian Christianity in America. Maybe you can un-muddy the waters of your mind just long enough to understand a conversation.

Also look up English Grammar 101. It does not start with 'R U'. And yes, I'm a purist trying to save the English language from fools who mostly communicate by cell phone and have no real conversations, nor do they write in any intelligible literary form.

That's not a sense of humor. It's the normal fundie barb that only fundies think is funny because they do not have the intelligence to actually make a joke. Well, except of themselves.

<quoted text>Could you repeat that in a literate tone, please?
No. He/she can only use AOLspeak in run-on, illiterate, fudie-esque. He/she approves of capitalism as long as it meets his/her criteria. If he/she lives in the US and voted for those in office now, he/she is much of the problem but will berate you for your type of capitalism.

It's amazing that those who vote in their own self disinterest are always the most illiterate and ignorant, and the most divisive of persons. They will march on an abortion clinic to which their beloved preacher snuck his daughter into because he couldn't live with the embarrassment of her pregnancy. They will march with tea party signs that beg for smaller government while carrying a sign in the other that says 'Leave Medicaid alone'.

They are usually those who wouldn't know how to use capitalism in their own lives to make it out of the trailer park, but are angry that others have and condemn them while coveting their goods against all that Jesus taught.

These are the types of Christians of whom all should be wary, for they will steal what you have while telling you how bad capitalism is.

None of this is to say that I believe that dishonesty or stealing from those who have less wits or goods. But without capitalism, they would still be stuck digging up dry ground with a homemade hoe to plant crops that they have to pray over in order to eat because they haven't embraced either capitalism or science.

Am I too outspoken? Someone said recently that I was 'being mean' when I told them to check e-mail rumors before repeating them as fact, and gave them the facts with which to make a decision as to whether they were being led like sheep or whether they had the mind to do research. They told me they aren't required to do research. That's correct. They can make an ass of themselves any time they like. I'll always give them the actual facts whether they like it or not or whether they deem research before reprinting lies is necessary. I'll keep 'being mean' like that for the rest of my life if it helps a single person learn to think before speaking or typing lies and nonsense.

Since Luke/Acts is presented as a collection of "tales told" there would be nothing unusual about differing styles with in it. IMHO it lends more to the credibility of the author's preface in each book.
One might think that so, but Luke's author took the material and made it his own. Witness his transformation of Mark's crude Greek to the rather sophisticated prose presented in Luke.
