James White vs. Dan Barker on the proposition: The Jesus Story is Cut from the Same Story as Other Ancient Mythologies
Recently, Christian apologist James White debated Dan Barker on the topic above. Anyone who has seen the internet film Zeitgeist and other "popular atheist media" has probably heard the objection that Christianity is not unique and, in fact, has borrowed its stories from pagan mythology. Therefore, as the objection goes, Christianity is probably not true. This debate is pretty unique in that i'm not aware of one that has centered around this particular proposition. I think anyone interested in the historicity of the Christian Scriptures will find this debate very informative.

Also, there was a very interesting part of the debate, where Barker interrupts White for quoting his book, that can be found HERE
