    It is fiction.

    Look, I'm tired of people being all PC about this. Tiptoeing around the poor, persecuted Christians. As if they're made of glass and can't take anything that might be construed as negative about their religion.

    It's not even negative. Look, Christians: there wasn't a guy who put two of every animal species on a boat during a global flood. The earth wasn't created in six days. The earth isn't flat. This is just reality. It's not an insult to your whole religion for me to say that. And you know what? Every Christian I've ever met is enough of an adult to hear me say that and not fall apart.

    I'm rather ambivalent towards the label, but a donkey I happened to be conversing with earlier rebuked the move in the strongest terms possible.

    Outraged at the stupidity, perhaps.

    So, Jesus didn't exist?

    The stupidity of the outraged Christians? Absolutely.

    There isn't a single contemporary eyewitness account of him, no. While there may have been an itinerant Jewish preacher at the time upon whom godhood was posthumously draped, the guy depicted in the Bible simply did not exist.

    Yes, a person named Jesus existed. Even the Muslims agree that Jesus existed.
