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

Here is a challenge that seeks answers to the age old question of the historicity of Jesus. A question that was at the centre of debate in the early years of Christianity and still goes on to this date.

I have here added just a few more questions to the challenge.

What are your thoughts on the historicity debate?

In a way you are right. Asking a guy with faith to be consistent, coherent and give evidence is a work in futility. That said, it is important to help bring to light, to those who care to read, the problems with the Jesus story

"... I started challenging apologists to offer a coherent apologia, a theory of Jesus that was both self-consistent and supported by evidence."

Whoa. "Coherent", "self-consistent", and "supported by evidence"... in a challenge pertaining to matters of faith and religion? An exercise in futility, that's what this looks to me.

Actually I think a debate on the historicity of Jesus could be interesting, but only as long as it's between historians only, or between theologians only, or any collection of people who talk the same language (scientific method, apologetics or whatever) and accept each other's viewpoint as valid a priori. Otherwise it's pointless.
