Most people commonly know that the bible itself is an historical document.
This man called Jesus somehow still has got the attention of the entire
world over 2000 years after his death
We all have heard his whole life story, his words and beliefs,
we have religions built around him, and people fighting & killing in his name
We have a book that is world widely known as "the book"
that we have dedicated the entire 2nd half of it to his teachings and his storys
Heck- the "guy" has even hit hollywood a bunch of times .
(let alone be called the" son of God ")
for even a tenth of the time (that would be about 200 years????)

I suggest any of you who believe those scant historical sources are accurate read the following thread: An Examination of the "Evidence" for Jesus
Jesus Christ never existed. Outside of the bible and the heads of his followers he is merely a mythical figure with zero evidence to back up his existence. There is no historical evidence, no physical evidence, none whatsoever that Jesus ever lived. Despite the number of historians alive during his time, none of them recorded the events described in the bible. The only place he ever appears to exist is in the bible, which is not a reliable historic source.
The Bible is NOT a historical document... it is an accumulation of writings from a variety of hands and times, some mutually exclusive or contradictory with many different revisions.....If you have any doubts look at the many different versions of the books of the Bible in the Dead Sea scrolls collection.
And what was Joshua doing while the sun supposedly stood still?...
Slaughtering people whose only crime was they already occupied the land God was giving to the Jews...(scratches head... hmm... sounds familiar)..
I refuse to believe in a God that condones slaughter...
I refuse to believe in a God who choses to favor some and condemns others...I refuse to believe in a God who would stop the whole planet just so one small group can continue killing...I refuse to believe in that kind of God.
I have heard of no substantial evidence that he did exist but I'll go out on a limb and give you that he did. Again, so what??
