I thought her response was a very good response to Callahan.  I’m not so sure he has done as much research on the subject as he is letting on in his article.  It seems to me he has not, but that is my opinion.

If you haven’t heard of the film, you may do just that at http://www.zeitgeistmovie.com

This movie attacks Christianity directly, and the religious institution as a whole indirectly

Remember this amazing movie?

Since its release in 2007 the internet film Zeitgeist has been seen by 50 million people around the world. The film attacks the foundations of Christianity by claiming that the historical Jesus never existed. Jesus was originally a solar deity, whose story closely parallels several other pagan gods. The story of Jesus life is best understood as an astrological analogy. When the first Council of Nicaea met in 325 under the direction of the Roman Emperor Constantine, the Christ myth was rewritten as if it were real historical fact. While some of the ideas in the Zeitgeist film are based in fact, others are pure fiction. Tim Callahan, religion editor for Skeptic Magazine, joins us on the show to share his critique of the film. Reasonable Doubts: Your skeptical guide to religion offering news and commentary of interest to skeptics, atheists, humanists, apologists looking for a challenge and freethinkers of all persuasions.

I have that one, but given that Easter is set by the first full moon after the Spring Equinox and people have sunrise services, you can’t prove to me that JC isn’t a solar deity.  I can even quote this dating of Easter word for word from the Book of Common Prayer.  There are other things that point to JC being a solar deity too.  So there is at least some fact in that.
