comment Do more Britons than Americans profess Christianity?
I think your third definition is fraught with difficulties. It's very unlikely that any polls were conducted with that definition. Church attendance is probably the best proxy we have (though that's by no means perfect either considering attendance was mandatory for some periods and some places).

comment What involvement did Jonathan Edwards have with the Conspiracy of 1741?
I'm afraid the evidence for Edward's view of slavery is substantially more complicated than "anti-slavery". According to this article he was opposed to Trans-Atlantic slave trade, but not slavery itself. However, the defence of Benjamin Doolittle shows that he had no particular qualms about speaking opening about the issue. So there's no particular reason to assume that he'd give a sermon on the topic of slave insurgency without mentioning it explicitly.

comment Have American writing styles changed between the Civil War and Today?
@Razie Mah: Thank you for the edit. I'm reopening the question based on your changes. (Obviously I have a conflict of interest here, but I think the change should be enough to give the question a new hearing.)

Start by saying the stereotype is demonstrably false. Also, added tags.

comment Can the new testament be a valid historical record on the real life of Jesus?
For more information on how the gospels are dated, please see: How Are The Gospels Dated? I think Luke wrote his gospel (and Acts) after the destruction of the temple and purposely left it out of his account. (I need to update my answer on Biblical Hermeneutics to explain myself, however.)

comment Can the new testament be a valid historical record on the real life of Jesus?
@T.E.D. and fredsbend: as it turns out, how much of the Iliad is historical is still an open question among historians. The answer certainly lies somewhere between "all" and "none". Even so, I prefer Luke (the author of Acts in the New Testament) over Homer as a historian! (And I prefer Tacitus over Suetonius as well.)
