There are more written books and testimonials about Jesus then there were for Julius Caesar.....so there's that.

 

Space aliens, the Loch Ness Monster, Sasquatch and Santa all have plenty of books and testimonials written about them too.  Add it all up and what do you have?  Zero proof of their existence.

 

Lol, this story is about as believable as thinking that... "Little Caesars" pizza company created Caesar so they could have a mascot.

 

Ha, ha, that's a good one!  How about these whoppers?

 

Jesus walked on water.

 

Jesus fed a huge crowd of hungry people with a few fish and loaves of bread.

 

Jesus was crucified and died only to rise again three days later. 

 

Mary was a virgin.

 

Eve came from Adam's rib.

 

Jonah spent three days and nights inside a whale's digestive system and lived to tell about it

 

Noah put two of every animal; kangaroos, pandas, armadillos, giraffes, sheep, lions, tigers and polar bears (oh my!) together for 40 days and 40 nights on a wooden ship and lived to tell about it.

 

A talking snake tricked the first woman into doing very naughty things with an apple, so now most females (not just women) must suffer intense pain through childbirth.

 

Lol, this story is about as believable as thinking that...

 

Oh the sweet irony!!!

Here is a snippit of a timeline with decent arguments from a good documentary on Netflix.

The interviews with Folklore experts and scholars bring up points that make perfect sense and should be viewed bc they support the OP.

 

I watched this on Netflix last night and this clip is literally the only good part. The first half is just a retelling of the Jesus story, the last half is the narrator whining about his childhood school.

DId Jesus exist?  Of course he did, the thought that he didn't or that Christianity was made up by the Roman empire is just as silly as the US government being behind 9-11.  As far as the miraculous stuff, its highly unlikely, but to each his own.

It didn't take long for the peacefulness to wear off. There is nothing more violent than a group of people who think they are doing something in the name of good....or a God

 

If you look at the history of warfare, religion is not behind as much of it as some think.  Greed, rival political systems, and just pure dumbassedness have caused more wars than religion, especially in the last 250 years or so.

Christianity is constructed on a foundation of shifting sand, not bedrock.

 

It is so bad that Christians can't even agree with one another.

 

They have been killing each other over religious disagreements for centuries.

Which makes it just like every other religion, political philosophy, or large organization etc.... in human history.  You get a large group of people together, they are going to disagree.  The longer an organization exist, the more disagreements are going to pop up.

So when Christians claim Jesus loves them, they really can't be sure of that can they?

I am sure many of them are sure.  Just as some people are sure republicans/democrats are right and the other party is wrong.  Or Chinese communist/Russian communist.  Or Japanese/Chinese Buddist during WWII, etc....  Doesn't mean they are right.

I'm sure people who take things on faith are sure of a lot of things they shouldn't be so sure of.
