how do you know He didn't exist?
That's a variation of the "unicorn" argument (how do you know they didn't/don't exist?). It's because it is mythology, not history.
how many others existed at that time, that have no references?
There were mentions of various and reasonably insignificant people called (in anglicised lingo )Jesus.
Though none that were claimed to have walked on water, healed sick and lame, known far and wide, followed by multitudes, had the sanhedrin convene on
passover/eve, threw money lenders out of a large and heavily guarded temple (kung fu jesus), an extremely improbable trial by Pilate...and so on.
Leaving out the magic, it's extremely unlikely jesus wouldn't have got a mention. Unless of course.....
There is nothing (in a historical sense) to indicate he existed. What is claimed to indicate this, does not and is far more consistent with
storytelling/ mythology. Believers seem to at least realise how ridiculous the story is, so they settle for agreement that he must have at least been
historical. Even that's unlikely.
nope, you insist He never existed because you claim it mythology and made up stories and if He did, it would be all over the front pages.
i suppose if one starts with mythology, most likely they would end up where you are, on this.
how much is written about the great pyramid being built at the time? gobeki tepi?
yet there they are.
i was not talking about people called jesus, i was talking about the joe blow, down the street from Him.
no mention of that guy either.
there are people today that don't know who the VP is. lol, in this country.
listen to yourself, you don't believe Jesus did those things so He couldn't exist.
who would really want to write they saw miracles but didn';t believe it anyway?
i'm not surprised there are not more writings about Jesus.
who could have guessed how it all turned out?
your last paragraph is so off base, it's funny.
