In the interminable comments on some of my blog posts, we have been hashing out the idea of a historical Jesus. I prefer the mythicist approach (basically ‘religious telephone’ as per the cartoon, but with various guys) but Christians are trying every so hard to get me to agree that Jesus was historical. Why, I have no idea because they are no closer to their myths and indeed they are damaging them since it becomes even clearer that this supposedly magical being can’t even get a footnote. They really want everyone to believe that at least there was some itinerate wannabee messiah who was killed by cruxifiction in the early part of the first millennia.
So, I grant that the idea of a historical Jesus has some points for it. Now that we have that established, I want to get to the real question, the one that Christians must answer: What is the evidence that Jesus Christ, Son of God, who did all of the miracles, etc, existed? We know that Christians are not worshipping a dead man who never rose from the grave and who cannot fulfill any violent prophecies in the future.
So, Christians, it is now in your court. What is the evidence you have for your divine messiah? We know that there is no evidence for the other supernatural events in the bible, what makes this different? Be aware, that many of your arguments are used by other religions so you need to show me that your god/son of god exist.
