If you don't mind me springboarding off of this, madness, I thought I'd put in my two cents.

I will start this off with just one statement of fact which disproves the validity.
From creation it launches into a monotheistic concept, where polytheism was encountered thousands of years later. Archaeological findings have yet to uncover evidence of a one God nation, tribe or concept that is older than or even close to being as old as polytheism.
The egyptian goad herders who originally worshipped him, had not created him yet.
Evidence From Tacitus:
Although there is overwhelming evidence that the New Testament is an accurate and trustworthy historical document, many people are still reluctant to believe what it says unless there is also some independent, non-biblical testimony that corroborates its statements....
Let's begin our inquiry with a passage that historian Edwin Yamauchi calls "probably the most important reference to Jesus outside the New Testament." Reporting on Emperor Nero's decision to blame the Christians for the fire that had destroyed Rome in A.D. 64, the Roman historian Tacitus wrote:
Nero fastened the guilt . . . on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of . . . Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome. . . .
What all can we learn from this ancient (and rather unsympathetic) reference to Jesus and the early Christians? Notice, first, that Tacitus reports Christians derived their name from a historical person called Christus (from the Latin), or Christ. He is said to have "suffered the extreme penalty," obviously alluding to the Roman method of execution known as crucifixion. This is said to have occurred during the reign of Tiberius and by the sentence of Pontius Pilatus. This confirms much of what the Gospels tell us about the death of Jesus.

What more evidence do you want??
How about evidence the universe is 6000 years old?
How about evidence for the flood?
How about evidence that the people and places mentioned really existed?
How about evidence of the sun stopping?
How about evidence Heaven? Hell?
