But the other parts of the Christ birth story is based in pagan folklore. I believe Jesus lived.. It was the adoption of the pagan hero story and miracles that helped develop a hero for the Bible.
There are a lot of old testament books that are not in the King James version bc there were considered way too unrealistic and clearly pagan folklore.
The first book of the bible is Genesis where God curses man for seeking knowledge(blames a woman)
The first book of the bible tells you,as its first major lesson, do not seek knowledge, do not question because you will discover your naked in the forest and you only did so because of an evil goat man tempting you...
So the devil is a goat man...why? Bc these cave stories were told by farmers and shepards... A goat man is just creepy to farmers in pre bi-cameral brain evolution.... But i guess satan is typing this through me.
The OT and the NT mention books that are not in the KJV. I'm sure if the guys who were putting together the Bible found those books, they would be in the KJV as well. You're wrong about Genesis, God did not curse man for seeking knowledge. Satan tricked Adam and Eve into thinking they would be like God if they ate the fruit, but the truth is they were already like God. (They just didn't know evil) Yet all in all, there's a lot more to talk about there, I don't think you want to hear this conversation.
You didn't provide evidence of guys like Pilate and Caiaphas. You said there is evidence, but you didn't provide evidence.
That's irrelevant anyways, because we're talking about evidence of Jesus, not evidence of Pilate. Evidence of Pilate is not evidence of Jesus. Jesus requires his own evidence.
I could say Ben Franklin trained as a ninja with a black samurai named Pretzelbreath, then say "Well there's evidence for Ben Franklin, so for sure Pretzelbreath is real."
Present some of these historical facts or stfu with pretending he's more real than any of the other gods mentioned in the thread.
You don't understand. At one point everything in the NT was considered myth. Yet with years of digging and research, more and more things began to line up with what the NT said all along. You can look up the evidence of Pilate and Caiaphas, you can look up some of the places where Jesus preached, they all existed. If all these things existed, what are the chances that the only thing that didn't exist was Jesus?
Now what you want is evidence of His miracles, that I don't have. Yet there is more than enough reason to say He preached a special message concerning who He was, and was crucified for it.
