Ah, such a clever trap. :lol: First Deerow says "I hope Mr. Bakker has more than coy answers to give on this one," which makes me evasive if I don't answer. Then Echoex says "no writer worth the paper he writes on would be so generous as to confirm or deny such a question," which makes me a hack if I do answer! I guess I'll settle for hack: The parallels you mention are intentional in several obvious respects, I think, but in an organic rather than a schematic sense. I never drew up lists of 'Jesus attributes' or anything like that, which I then self-consciously applied to Kellhus. All the parallels, to Christ, to Muhummad, and to Buddha all came to me in the course of writing - whatever seemed to work. So I guess you could say they're not [i:237isn01]intentionally[/i:237isn01] intentional. Hmm... Perhaps I should have said 'evasive hack.' :wink: view post
