We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

The only evidence that we have outside of the gospel that Jesus actually existed

"...there is very little trace of the historical Jesus. Essentially we are relying upon a throw-away line in a first century Jewish historian's work called the Antiquity. The historian who was named Flavius Josephus, who, while talking about far more significant historical figures, the Roman governor Albinus and the Jewish high priest Ananias, mentions how this Jewish peasant by the name of James, whose brother was Jesus, the one they call messiah, was unjustly put to death by the high priest in the year 62 CE. That’s it. That little tiny phrase, that clause, James, the brother of Jesus, the one they call messiah...the only evidence that we have outside of the gospel that Jesus actually existed.

Jesus was a very common name, so that single mention could relate to any peasant in 62 CE.

Anybody who doubts the possibility of the truth of the above statement should visit Southern California today. I have a major problem with the entire Christology story. Beginning with an omniscient and omnipotent god creating a race of REALLY inferior beings that were so out of control that he had to send his son to die to save them. Then starting with why the location of Joseph and family in Bethlehem ( to be in the city of his ancestor David?) isn't persuasive - given that Joseph wasn't his father, and thus irrelevant to the story and ending with a personal flight to heaven, with a police blotter full of impossibilities in between - lead me to develop a more charitable view of  a recent presidential candidate who only wore magic underwear and had a dancing horse.

The name is irrelevant. A historical person matching the description of Jesus never existed regardless of the name.

I agree - perhaps my remark was too wide of the mark.

Now don't that put your knickers in a knot!

I think (correct me if I'm wrong ) that there are no solid proofs that Jesus existed...  It might have been like a storytelling...

The Christian religion was invented to control the masses.

Isn't that true of ALL religions?

There is no scholarly agreement on the race and appearance of Jesus; over the centuries, he has been depicted in a multitude of ways.

The bible (Jesus story) is written to cause cognitive dissonance.
