I posted my arguments here at length and in detail.
But you won't do the same.
I could just as easily post a link and say :
"here, this link proves you wrong".
But we all know debate by link is not acceptable.
In short - Ashley has failed to support his claim of 2 dozen historical evidences for Jesus.
Agreed. There is NO historical evidence at all that I've ever seen or heard of that refers to jesus christ. The 'evidence' on Ashley's website is at times verging on hysterically funny. 'Some christians were willing to die for their god' is NOT evidence for their gods existence. Period.
There were literally dozens of madman wandering around Israel around 20AD or thereabouts claiming to be the 'Messiah'. That much IS historically proven.
Claiming that famous roman astonomers did NOT record amazing astronomical events like the 'darkening of the whole world' because they thought it might be supernatural, therefore not worth them recording, is evidence only of the actual scarcity of any real evidence for jesus's existence.
As I already knew from many years of reading on the subject matter myself - there actually is no historical evidence out there at all. So this thread is just another christian paper tiger.....as usual.

And all of which have already been answered in the "skeptic interjection" portions Ashley's posts.
Please read more carefully next time.
