Um duh let's see...
How about the ancients sites that circumnavigate the globe as a code...
how about ancient Sumerian text?
how about the ancient cites in direct correlation with myths that existed before they were found buried deep underground?
How about enormous humanoids?
How about technology superseding that of today from ancient times?
Or how bout cause I said so, which seems to be all you dimwits have to back you up...
I posted before reading your article *blush* ... it goes into this point quite well. Mea culpa.
As far as Jesus committing adultery, perhaps not ... but his Father certainly did.

#10: He existed in the first place.
During His lifetime, no persons were described as "Jews" anywhere. That fact is supported by theology, history and science. When Jesus was in Judea, it was not the "homeland" of the ancestors of those who today style themselves "Jews". Their ancestors never set a foot in Judea. They existed at that time in Asia, their "homeland", and were known as Khazars. In neither of the manuscripts of the original Old or New Testament was Jesus described or referred to as a "Jew", just as the term "Texan" signifies a person living in Texas. [Source]
In the letters of Paul, which are regarded by historians to be the oldest works of the New Testament (written 10 to 20 years after Jesus' death), Paul mentions, almost in passing, "the Jews who killed the Lord, Jesus" (I Thessalonians 2:14-15).
"Most importantly," he explains, "these mythicists point out that there are Pagan gods who were said to die and rise again and so the idea is that Jesus was made up as a Jewish god who died and rose again."
In his book, Ehrman marshals all of the evidence proving the existence of Jesus, including the writings of the apostle Paul.
"Paul knew Jesus' brother, James, and he knew his closest disciple, Peter, and he tells us that he did," Ehrman says. "If Jesus didn't exist, you would think his brother would know about it, so I think Paul is probably pretty good evidence that Jesus at least existed," he says.
... If jesus was a mortal man he then understood humanity in its quest for love.
All this fuss about her is absurd.
11. The Romans didn't kill hm.
