CHRIST'S VENTRILOQUIST: How St. PaulEngineered the Hoax that Shaped Our World

I'm currently reading a manuscript by an aspiring author, Eric Zuesse, entitled"CHRIST'S VENTRILOQUIST: How St. Paul Engineered the Hoax thatShaped Our World."He is hoping to get the book published, and has asked for a little help fromthe frequenters of ExChristian.net.But first, what is his book all about?He describes his book as the first-ever legal/forensic analysis of theevidence regarding how Christianity started. He says:
"Legal/forensic," simply put, is the methodology which is employed incourts of law in a democracy. A court presents to the jury not the largest 
of evidence regarding a particular matter (as scholars areaccustomed to doing via huge bibliographies and numerous footnotes), but instead the highest 
of evidence regarding any specific question. Forexample, DNA evidence trumps witness testimony, and that's why many people have been released from death rows after the advent of DNA testing.Similarly, the exclusionary rule is employed so as to winnow out evidentiarygold from evidentiary chaff so as to avoid contaminating jurors' judgment byless reliable "evidence" which prejudices rather than informs.The difference between legal/forensic methods and other methods isthe difference between history and myth. When innocent convicts arereleased from prisons after DNA analysis, the accounts of the crimes forwhich they had been convicted are publicly revealed to have been myth and not history. In cases where DNA evidence identified the true perpetrator of the crime,the myth becamereplaced b ya new account of thecrime — an account which offered, for the first time, a
about that crime.  A legal/forensic exegesis of Paul's letter to the Galatians, and anassociated legal/forensic analysis of the four canonical Gospels, finds that Christianity started in or around the year 49 CE in Antioch(present-day Antakya, Turkey) as a direct consequence of a personal conflict which had arisen, over the course of 17 years, between Paul and the leader of the Jewish sect which Jesus had begun. The sect's leader was not Peter, as themodern-day Christian myth asserts, but was instead Jesus' brother James.
