Well, firstly you need to clarify what it is you are actually asking. Are you asking if Christ existed, or if he performed miracles.
The way I see it, Christ existed. That he had powers is irrelevant to Christianity, as it is the lessons he preached that form the basis for
Christianity. All the other guff about miracles, I take with a grain of salt.
For example, teachings such as "But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in
heaven." are, in my opinion, the basis for Christianity.
So therefore, it's not exactly a valid question to ask "Is Christianity fake" because you cannot consider a way of life true or false.
I'm not a Christian by the way, not any more.
