Not your fault Rose. It is hard for us to imagine being such a devoid of reason person like he is. But honestly you could set up a program to post random copy and pastes so he really isn't even needed.

"Zero eyewitnesses to your Jewsus-boy"
LOL!
Thousand of eye-witnesses!
"Jesus' 12 disciples had just returned from a missionary journey he had sent them on. After they told him all they had done and taught, he took them with him in a boat on the Sea of Galilee to a remote place, for rest and prayer.
Great crowds of people in the area heard that Jesus was near. They ran to see him, bringing their sick friends and relatives. When the boat landed, Jesus saw all the men, women and children and had compassion on them. He taught them about the Kingdom of God and healed those who were sick.
Looking at the crowd, which numbered about 5,000 men, not counting women and children, Jesus asked his disciple Philip, "Where shall we buy bread for these people to eat?" (John 6:5, NIV) Jesus knew what he was going to do, but he asked Philip to test him. Philip replied that even eight months' wages would not be enough to give each person even one bite of bread.
Andrew, Simon Peter's brother, had more faith in Jesus. He brought forward a young boy who had five small loaves of barley bread and two small fish. Even so, Andrew wondered how that could help.
Jesus ordered the crowd to sit down in groups of fifty. He took the five loaves, looked up to heaven, gave thanks to God his Father, and passed them to his disciples to be distributed. He did the same with the two fish.
Everyone—men, women and children—ate as much as they wanted! Jesus miraculously multiplied the loaves and fishes so there was more than enough. Then he told his disciples to gather the leftovers so nothing was wasted. They collected enough to fill 12 baskets.
The crowd was so overwhelmed by this miracle that they understood Jesus was the prophet who had been promised. Knowing they would want to force him to become their king, Jesus fled from them."
No, you may be able to claim one eye witness, but that story is highly suspect and contradicts the others. Hearsay is not evidence, therefore, that's all you have, one possible eye witness who is more likely to be lying anyway. There are millions of eye witnesses of Spiderman, according to the comic books, using the same logic you employ, Spiderman is real.

Atheists don't do questions or evidence.
Bring some answers or an accountable position. This is your forum. Once you have a point worry about what others believe. What do you believe? Resubmitted due to atheist cowardice.

The OLDEST gospel dates to about 60 years post-death of the alleged jesus character.

Sixty years.

That's not "eyewitness", that's 2nd generation gossip.

NEXT!
LOL

Again I say to you Bozo.
An eye witness does not have to write it down to be an eye witness he/she only needs to see it. Another point I would like to add would be you don't know if they did or did not write it down. All we know is we have not found their writings.

I am especially proud of my volunteer work and donations to the humanist cause. Every year I go to the Philippines and spend thousands on food,water, clothing and medicine for the needy there. After a horrific typhoon and flooding there I was there amongst others 14 hours a day handing out supplies, giving life saving injections and treatments to those who lost their home. I stood and watched as homeless children lined up easily 3 miles deep for a package of crackers sandwich fruit and bottle of water. Unwanted children who were born because the Christian ran theocracy light government makes it nearly impossible for a woman to obtain birth control. My wife is in pre-med classes and wants to practice medicine there free to help those poor children. Here in the states I collect donations for running in marathons with the money going to children's charities and cancer or HIV awareness programs.
I have seen first hand time and time again the damage and heart breaking situations brought on by theists. The same theists who come crawling to us to help fix their mess! Oh but while we are fixing it are we thanked? Nope. We barely get the figurative broom in hand and they are shrieking at us for not believing in their imaginary friend.
Honor? I guess it is a relative term. The dozen of urban low income students I assist for free with their biology and pharmaceutical homework at two different colleges locally would probably say good ole KJ is an alright dude.
Now if coming on topix and giving the theists a little taste of backbone, the theists who try to intimidate and silence non believers because they think we should all be meek and humble and tolerate their abuse and repeated logical fallacies makes me vile, Without reason, Disrespectful, In someone's opinion? So be it, hmmm I will chuckle about how vile And disrespectful I am Friday at U of L for the 6 hours I am assisting the students there as a volunteer. Or perhaps this summer as I am passing out thousands of dollars worth of free medicine and other essentials trying to save some more homeless from dying. Yes I was walking by a group of people there and they were huddled together praying loudly and crying. I looked in and a young girl was on the ground dying of dehydration. Instead of getting her water and rushing her to the hospital they stood there holding hands and praying! I grabbed my cell phone and called for an ambulance and started trying to get her to drink. Slowly she sipped the water as the praying continued. The ambulance came after almost an hour and reluctantly took her to the hospital, the paramedic said she was good as dead and best leave it in the hands of Jesus same thing the crowd thought. She died 18 hours later. They didn't even know her name and couldn't figure it out.
I guess I'll somehow deal with being called disrespectful.

Okay, lets start with evidence according to YOU.

Begin-- prove your god is real, using evidence according to YOU.

100% false-- if the eyewitness doesn't write it down? THERE IS NO WITNESS, you ignorant dolt.

I AM happy that you agree that NONE of the eyewitness' "writings" exist, at present.

So you must ALSO agree that there are no eyewitnesses to your Jewsus.

We are in court-- the court of the human experience.

And more and more, the younger generations are LEAVING your bankrupt tissue of lies (Genuine Christianity™) behind.

This is good.

Soon? Your quaint little hate-cult will be no more relevant than the Druids are now.

Because Genuine Christianity™ is nothing but a hate-cult.

Who, but people filled with hate, would worship a god who they believe will use infinite torture (hell) on most people, forever?

Watch the loons lash out at a God they don't believe in. They also won't debate or explain their illogical nothing. That's ok, they are my puppets and I am their master.
