Nero didn't burn Rome this was a Christian apologetic lie as historians have clearly shown. Again you claimed there are all these contemporary eye witnesses to Jesus so stop stalling and name them and show their writings or documentation already.

What kind of proof is needed to show if a person was an eyewitness to an ancient event? For example it is written that Nero burned Rome and claimed that that it was the Christians that did it. How would you prove this to be true? Who were the eyewitnesses that saw Nero burn Rome? Give me some names.

Are you frustrated that the only argument your feeble brain can muster is the bandwagon fallacy? As mom would say, if everyone was jumping off a cliff with no safety measures would you do it to?

Yes your mom beat that argument when you was a child. And that's the best you have? Let me know when you can do better.

Atheism forum seems to frustrate you with the poor performance of atheists in contemporary US?

The extant manuscripts of the writings of the 1st century Romano-Jewish
historian Flavius Josephus include references to Jesus and the origins of Christianity

The Jesus line in Josephus is a Christian forgery not found in his earlier copies of the work.

Care to try again my feeble minded peon?

And just for laughs Josephus mentions Hercules over a dozen times on his work and Hercules appears in even the oldest copies of antiquities.

I guess the god Hercules must exist then since the Christholes love bringing up Josephus so much.

Ok still waiting for these contemporaries of Jesus to appear with their writings about actually meeting him. Any century now peon.

I'm sorry that you have no proof of god and hate atheists for having a lack of belief. Maybe you can go educate yourself instead of being a pr*ck on this forum?

You don't have any proof of god. To be clear - the resurrection - a human being coming back to life after crucifixion & 3 days - biologically impossible.

This is why you sometimes find atheists laughing at your stupidity.

All that chump has is appeal to authority and bandwagon fallacies with a dash of circular reasoning fallacy. Ask him a question and he runs like the brain dead loser he is.

Until he has something to offer the conversation it's time to flush that turd.

Loving the attempts to rewrite history. Antitheists have no shame and will do whatever they wish to pursue their agenda. You won't find any evidence or even an attempt to engage in honest discussion.
Any tangential issue that keeps their nothing out of the equation will suffice. How often, does a sane person need to repeat they believe there is no evidence to support anything in this arena. We get it. That's not enough though. Nope, you want to marginalize believers and scurry away when pressed. Note. I have tirelessly offered to debate the evidences and reasons I believe in a prime mover vs any accountable position they make a case for. Don't forget your rules for evidence bigots. Not one taker in over three years. Exposed!
Kittie there is no point in discussing the evidences of a historical Jesus with lying bigots. We might as well have the same discussion on any number of historical figures that have much less evidence. Imhotep huh? How do you know its his body? His writing? Hearsay. Timeliness of accounts questionable,,,, whatever I choose.
Only zealots reject a historical Jesus. There is plenty of evidence from secular and non-Christian sources to satisfy all but a loon. Just because people tire of chasing whatever silliness you nothings throw out doesn't mean a thing. No point in engaging intellectually dishonest cowards.
I will remain on point. I know your kind hates that. I asked what you believe. You don't believe in Jesus. You don't believe in magic. You don't believe in Apple pie and Chevrolet. Great. I've never tried to convert a one of you. I simply want to know what you believe. You've been exposed, but please keep trotting out your nothing for me to laugh at.
Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.
Stay on point bigots. Oh, what's your point again. Still no evidence in an atheism forum. Still no takers to debate something vs nothing. You loons are marginalized and ridiculed not because you don't believe, but because of lying, obfuscation, and intellectual dishonesty. You spend your days fighting a God you don't believe in. That's bizzare behavior. No guns for you Obama voters.

That damn tea party, how dare they want fiscal sanity. Get them some tinfoil. Government spending is no issue without a budget. Oops, no budget. Good grief is this wasn't so serious I'd really be entertained.
March Obamabots, march! Food stamps for everone.
Why do con dumbs just randomly throw Obama's name into any argument?
I was reading a news story about deaf twins in Belgium who decided to be euthanized because they were going blind. And the con dumbs were going on about Obama, and death panels... Seems con dumbs don't know Belgium is not part of the US, and the twins made their own decision.

Our numbers are rising. I think we have always been here but are finally able to speak freely and come out about being non believers. I've felt alone in my beliefs for a long time. And that will defiantly make you strong, because all you believers are the biggest bullies, you push your beliefs down our throats, you never listen, you judge and lots of other immoral things. Believers say we're satanist, sorry that's your religion not ours. Why can't they understand if we don't believe in god why would we believe in the devil. Religion was the biggest scam of all. Just a way of controling the masses. And so many people still believe in the invisible man that's always broke on Sundays.I just don't get it.
My name is Jennifer and I'm an atheist!!! I'm glad I'm not alone.

Hello Rose
Point 1 "If god exists, there is evidence of his existence."
I disagree. It would be more correctly written, "If God exists, then is there evidence of God's existence?", or you could say, "Is there evidence of God's existence?", or you could say, "Does evidence exist that proves that God exists?".
You are assuming in your statement that God exists because there is evidence. And you make a conclusion with Point 2 based on an assumption. That assumption would be incorrect if God exists outside of Creation, and therefore outside of certain types of evidence.
To answer this one must consider what constitutes evidence, in what framework are we applying that evidence, and thirdly, can God(being Creator, and thus outside of Creation(by definition)) be evidenced within Creation?
If you agree, then we can go on.
If you disagree, then we can discuss this point further.
If you would rather not discuss the point. This ends now.
If we go on, then we have to agree what consitutes evidence, and the framework in which it is presented.
When I say "god", I mean the type of god worshiped by the Abrahamic faiths. One who is all powerful, all knowing, truthful, interested in what we do, and says he will answer our prayers.
If such a god exists, then I feel there would be evidence of his existence. A Deist version of god could exist without there being any evidence of his existence.
I use point 1 because people often say that you can't prove a negative. I disagree. I can prove there isn't an elephant in my kitchen. How? Well if there were one, there would be evidence of one.
Do you agree with that?

Why do con dumbs randomly insert Obama's name into every discussion?
And John, I've stated my position many times, but you refuse to debate!
There is no god, so I don't fight him. I counter idiots like you who believe in him. Why? Because so many of you want our laws to reflect what you believe your god wants. Because so many of you harass people at funerals for their loved ones.

Aren't you the loon that says Obama has reduced government? It doesn't matter how many times you loons are proven wrong, you'll just keep marching off the cliff.

I read the article and immediately thought; deaf, blind, and dead but still smarter than Rose.

We could discuss health fraud as well, but you wouldn't accept those facts either. A true freethinker!

Stump an antitheist! Ask them what they believe.
