Napoleon Bonaparte was a Myth

I just got through reading a pretty funny (and pretty old) article claiming that Napoleon Bonaparte was a myth. It was a satire written in the 1800's in order to rebut the claim that Jesus (and other ancient gods) were just old solar myths. You can read it for free here.

I think this is something everyone interested in early Christianity should read, as it ought to keep you from making fallacies like the ones seen in this video:

Do we have an early member of the Bonaparte fan club claiming that people had never heard of Napoleon, apart from their being told about Boney by his fans?

Do we have vast numbers of people allegedly associated with Boney that even French people never wrote a document naming themselves as ever having seen them?
