Wrong, Jesus is indeed a historical figure, referenced repeatedly. So, what makes Nero or Xerxes more so, bodies. I'd love to see Xerxes, I hear he was a big sucker........

We should get back on topic. Creation vs evolution, not bash christians/bash athiests. I'm getting a little tired of that.
That will continue as long as one and/or the other refuses to accept that both are part of this world's beginnings and existence.

Christianity, we all know sprang up from Judaism, the Jewish Christians never fought a hard war, to win converts unlike Islam. They maintain faith, till the Romans saw the need for them to embrace the truth.
Just think!
\Ummmm...COnstantine was NEVER converted, but he happened to have a Bishop of a certain flavor of the 100s in the ROman Empire in the 4th century...Constantine persecuted, murederedf and summarily dogged the other Xian sects like the Gnostics...when he was done with the spear point-and-sword conversions, he ran back to the Eastern Empire to grab the Greeks, et al///he coddled them and the took the bait...your history is epically wrong...Xianity was merely a political plot to consolidate power...whomever opposed it, got smoted...that's they way it was...despite your f=arm flapping and foot stomping, your entire religion, as it stands today, is credited to a pagan emperor, who demanded a vote art Nicaea(SAnta Claus was there, too...but he was called Nicholas of Myra, the Bishop of Myra and he was ORTHODOX)...but you keep thinking it was some divinely guided process, I'll continue to study the REAL HISTORY...thanks for oplaying, junior, your consolation prize is in the back room.

According to History and research, Jesus actually lived.

Answered your own question: bodies, writings, independent, verifiable evidence...Xerxes has monuments built IN HIS LIFETIME, Nero is recorded in ROman history IN HIS LIFETIME...funny how one of you morons(Chuckles, I think) claims a Jewish COnspiracy, yet the Josephus blurb gets tossed around like it's a fact...seems that when a Jew says something positive, it's a mitzvah...but when Jews fail to mention 'everything' it's a conspiracy...I remember the masturbation-fest over Simcha Jacobovici's claim he found the ossuary of James, validating the Jesus Tomb claims...WROOOONG...he's just an entertainer, at this point...so yes, bodies help, but with no DNA to compare it to, what would it matter to science...the fact is that there is no evidence for any miracle worker named Yeshua...period...Constatine gets the credit for Xianity.

You’re not going to agree because you are not a person who understanding is not founded on absolute truth because you are an agnostic. Your concept is a logical flaw and so will your understanding of knowledge will be as well.

no, dummy, it's called English becuase the Anglo-Saxons(the SAxons and the Angles, Germanic tribes) spoke the language...English, as in England, as in Angland/Aengland, get the picture...and those tribes spoke their OWN languages of Germanic/Latin origins, dummy...we speak English in America(as in Amerigo Vespucci) becuase we CAMe over here with it!...DUH...tracing human history through language is VERY common...you think that people in Hawai'i peak English becuase they are German, or Norse or from the UK...your position is crushed, move along and leave the goalposts where the are, you've been crushed, skunked, rolled...OWN it, and man up

you shouldn't talk of a field of study you clearly do not understand...
I was talking about character! The solopsism, vanity, extreme self centeredness of scientists. One dare ever question their magnificence. Get a scientist to say "I'm wrong" about anything? FAT CHANCE!

Darwin was so impressed with himself that he would have been hard pressed to even to even think there was another human being of his self estimated magnitude on the face of the planet!

ummm. i know many scientists that are the exact opposite of what you say.

and as to Darwin, as you would know if you had the intelligence to learn about someone before you attempt to slam them, had shelved his work for several years until an old friend wrote him from china with a paper promulgating a theory identical to Darwin's from his research there. darwin immediately pulled out his old study and promptly published it to beat him to it. so he knew for sure there were others able to see what he had observed.

Seriously, have you even gone to college?

I see someone is going to have to explain the scientific method to you. Plus the meaning of "scientific theory."

Oh please could you mr. Gellybelly?

Funny this post in response to me saying that more less that we may not have absolute proof for God but we have evidence.

It looks as if You've got your dial set to full doofuses mode.

I know some scientists that are not narcissistic, actually know these people.

I had read ALL of darwins works when I was in college and he WAS nacissistic. I wanted to make up my own mind about evolution and studied it. I studied original research.

You are using the "No true Scotsman" fallacy.

Just because they don't measure up to your standards of what a Christian is does not mean that they are not Christians.

If you want to claim that Kong and I are wrong you need to prove it. I do believe that Kong included a link that showed you are wrong.
"They are Christians. And Hitler was a Christian too. "

Sure they were.(Smirk)

WOW what can you say.

It's is true "topix atheist are a whole new breed stupidness. "
