The mini-maxi debate

and have been blogging about the accuracy of the Biblical evidence of the historical existence of Israel in the time of King David. Although Jim West is a minimalist and discounts all kinds of historical evidence, he is quick to tell us that his blog is worth $ 77,341.98 and that that some of the numbers on the “How Much is My Blog Worth”, but not the value assigned to his blog, make “makes no sense at all to me.” Now I am first to admit that none of the numbers will make any cents and that these numbers are not even evidence of comparative value. I present Jim’s own blog as Exhibit “A” containing substantial evidence that Jim is “a closet maxi” and one willing to submit weak evidence of the existence of value but not willing to accept any evidence at all of historical existence. However, in spite of these very ssubstantial wweaknesses, he does have a vvery ggood bblog. And Jim, I will sell you my blog for only 58712 cents!

Exhibit “A”
Biblical Theology
A weblog about Biblical Studies, Theology, and current events, by Jim West, ThD, a fahrender Scholastiker who dashes through life in the greatest haste.
