I don't believe Jesus was ever born. I don't think he was a real person, that he was crucified, that he was the Son of God, or that he ever taught
the things described in the New Testament. I don't believe he was a historical person like the Buddha or Confucius. However, I do believe that
"his" teachings are just as worthy of recognition as those of the aforementioned. The problem is not that people accept "his" teachings, its that
they accept him as a deity. Buddha never claimed to be a god (though he is highly revered). Same with Confucius.
All that said, since I don't believe in Jesus, I imagine the world would be exactly the same if he was never born. On the other hand, if "his"
teachings had never been recorded, the world would be greatly different. Whether better or worse ... well, that' a bit more complicated.
