- v. Alternative spelling of mither.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Moreover, my interest has come from reading Carrier and Price, not from Doherty or the internet myther bloggers.
Not even the most ardent Jesus-myther would ever ask for evidence for each and every Gospel character before accepting that any of them existed.
I forgot to mention that I debated in public with another Jesus myther, professor Alvar Ellegård, on the international book fair here in Göteborg, Sweden, years ago.
He managed to secure work with a small family run company where he worked quite happily for six months with no myther (Lancashire dialect, problem or trouble).
The same can be said about the myther position, the position that says that Jesus was not an historical person, but a mythic construct of the ancient people.
Tom Verenna has responded that the myther position has moved beyond parallalmania which focused on comparing Jesus 'story with pagan myths.
