What is this guy's PhD in? 'Cause it sure isn't history, lol.
There is a reason that the existence of a person in the First Century named Jesus who began a new sect of Judaism, call Christianity, is almost universally accepted --and that is because there is something called historical evidence.
You can start with the Surviving Documents from the Council of Nicaea and work your way back from there.
ETA: Oh, here he is: Black Liberation Network
(Dr. Hagins) holds a doctorate (C.C.D.) in counseling and a Ph.D. with an emphasis in Cognitive Psychology
Call me old fashioned, but I prefer my history from historians, not counselors.
ETA2: Okay, I can get past him not knowing how to pronounce Ptolomy and for not knowing what the Greek word "Christus" means, but the "Son/Sun" argument? THE BIBLE WASN'T WRITTEN IN ENGLISH, YOU IDIOT!!!

There is no historial evidence for the existance of Jesus. If you have some, please, please present it.

I would be interested in reading that in contrast to this thread. Let me know if you decide to post it.
which provides statistical and historical evidence that the Gospels were written by eyewitnesses to the life and teaching of Christ.
It is almost universally accepted among historians of the era that Jesus existed. Who, or what, he was, obviously is open for interpretation among those scholars.

I drafted a thread a while back, attempting to restore the legend of Horus, while rejecting nitwits like D.M. Murdoch, who hijack what his followers thought about him, in an effort to sell books, but never posted it. I should think about "resurrecting" that article, har-har-har.
Horus was who the ancient Egyptians thought that he was, not what modern "Christ mythicists" re-imagine him to be, and ditto Ptolomy.
Both born of a virgin, walked on water, crucified, rose from the dead - to name a few.
THE PROPER REASON ACCORDING TO PLUTARCH
LIII. 1. For Isis is the feminine [principle] of Nature and that which is capable of receiving the whole of genesis; in virtue of which she has been called “Nurse” and “All-receiving” by Plato, 1 and, by the multitude, “She of ten-thousand names,” through her being transformed by Reason (Logos) and receiving all forms and ideas [or shapes].
2. And she hath an innate love of the First and Most Holy of all things (which is identical with the Good), and longs after and pursues it. But she flees from and repels the domain of the Bad, and though she is the field and matter of them both, yet doth she ever incline to the Better of herself, and offers [herself] for him to beget and sow into herself emanations and likenesses, with which she joys and delights that she is pregnant and big with their generations.
3. For Generation is image of Essence in Matter and Becoming copy of Being.
