Even worse, informal logical fallacies abound in statements by the Jesus Seminar. Comments about the “secular heavens” start to sound less like reasoned responses and more like a prioripreaching.

Interestingly enough, some Seminar Fellows appear to recognize such dangers.^57 Unfortunately, this seems to be a minority acknowledgment.
