I will help you, before you embarrass yourself.

Thanks I am exceptionally skilled at that.

I agree with you that we don't know what he looked like. Probably because there has never been such a person.

i always laugh at people who will spend a good amount on time on stuff/people that didn't exist. why it reminds me of that santa clause thread just the other day. ya see it all started when a fat guy who loved snow was scorned by a chimpanzee named Horatio...

this line of thinking falls apart if you're at all engaged in the political process. when people use their religion to codify discriminatory practices into law, it is silly to just shrug your shoulders and say "eh why bother"

I contend that it is done out of taste. Or rather sympathy for the believers. Find evidence of Jesus having existed. It is challenging.

i don't think sympathy for christians is a consideration of very many scholars (and nor should it be.) i'm not sure i buy that explanation
