One other thing, by the logic that you claim to base your opinions on, you would then deny the existence of Hammurabi? Oh no because he had tablets
and such with his name on it.....see the irony?
Hammurabi may have existed?
Or may not - so what?
Same for Nebuchadnezzar
He probably existed.
What exactly is you point?
Every case must be judged on its merits.
Do you think EVERY PERSON mentioned in ancient books existed?
What about Krishna?
Do you believe Apuleis turned into an ass?
It's amazing how few people can even SPELL this name right !
We have BOOKS written by Julius Caesar himself.
We have statues of his likeness.
We have coins showing his face, made while he was alive.
We know of wives and children of his.
We have archeological evidence of his actions.
We have NUMEROUS writings about him from contemporaries, including enemies.
We have numerous interlocking accounts of his actions from Rome and foreign countries.
The evidence for Julius Caesar existing is VAST.
We have NOTHING written by Jesus.
We have NO IDEA what he looked like.
We have NO evidence from ANYONE who met him.
We have NO archeological evidence of his actions.
We have NO contemporary writings about him.
In short, the hard evidence for Jesus existence is ZERO.
All we have is STORIES from LONG afterwards.
and yes George Washington
Do you really think the evidnce for George Washington compares to that for Jesus?
Moses on the other hand and the Jews being granted freedom to leave was recorded in the Pharaohs history was it not?
More evidence you have no idea of the facts,
and that you never bother to check your wild claims.
There is NO EVIDENCE for Moses existing.
