    So lets see the proof? Or are you just making **** up?
    That's about like: Many people wrote and talked about a boy named Harry Potter. Let's see some proof he does not exist.

    Sure indeed.




    Look, it's a debate for the Religion or History forums, perhaps, but the actual historical evidence for the general accuracy of the NT texts is pretty thorough.

    Harry Potter is not an historical figure and is a known work of fiction. The same cannot be said about Jesus. Even critics like John Remsburg and Richard Dawkins agree the odds are Jesus did exist, even though they see the Gospels as no more historical than any other myth.

    We also have evidence from none Christian sources...

    Nero fastened the guilt . . . on a class hated for their abominations, called Christians by the populace. Christus, from whom the name had its origin, suffered the extreme penalty during the reign of Tiberius at the hands of . . . Pontius Pilatus, and a most mischievous superstition, thus checked for the moment, again broke out not only in Judaea, the first source of the evil, but even in Rome. - Emperor Nero's decision to blame the Christians for the fire that had destroyed Rome in A.D. 64, the Roman historian Tacitus

    So As soon as you can point out the same or similar for Harry Potter, you will have a point.

    Many people existed in the past. As normal humans. There very well may have been a scam artist in the past that passed himself off as 'son of god'. In modern times people would see such a person as the nut job their are.

    Huh? People are allowed to believe in fantasy. A belief in such does not make them insane. If you re-read my post you will see I said that anyone in modern times that would come forward and announce himself the son of god, would be found by most people, to be a nutcase.

    There is no less scientific fact that zombies may rise up and attack us than there is that there is a god or that jesus was his son.

    Just looked at the poll results. I can't believe the landslide.

    Who had more rules than Jesus??
    The devil whispered in my ear, "You cannot withstand the storm." I whispered back, "I am ​the storm."
