Sweden is mostly atheist.

So is Denmark and so is Switzerland.

All are majority atheists.

And all have superior cultures than **any** religious country (including the USA).
All enjoy low crime rates, very low infant mortality, universal health care, and very high average salaries.

Most likely because they dumped toxic religion (apart from a purely symbolic remainder, devoid of any real substance).

And they **never** let religion interfere with **any** serious decision.
We all notice your racism here! Had to point to all white countries!!!

Actually?

If the claim is as wild as your Jesus is?

You do-- you **do** need contemporary accounts.

What's worse?

YOU BELIEVE YOUR JESUS WAS A GOD

That makes it a million times WORSE-- a GOD would have foreseen the problems, and left behind definitive proof.

He didn't.

He was not only NOT a god? He wasn't even a man.

He's also pretending that the floor isn't lava. He's got a good poker face. I'll give him that.

Lets dance,
So, mouth, name us just one historical figure from that era that has what you accept as historical evidence.
No.

It's not my claim to support-- it IS YOURS.

It IS up to YOU to prove the history of your alleged jesus character.

Get busy!

All you need?

Is One (1) document that is provably written by your guy.

What's that?

Your Jesus NEVER WROTE ANYTHING?

Wow...

... was he illiterate or something?

Indeed.
There remains zero evidence for the historicity of this Jesus character.
.. there is strong evidence that a rabbi known as Jesus lived in Israel in the 1st-century, preached a radical, heretic message and was crucified by the Romans ..

.. to dismiss accounts of his existence because they are in the bible seems a bit far fetched, especially from modern scholars ..

.. however, the Divinity of Jesus will always be in question ..

And what he meant by "train wreck" is entirely different from what the Republicans mean by train wreck. Baucus meant it didn't go far enough. Republicans mean it exists...which in their estimation makes it a train wreck.
Plus, Baucus is trying to make what we have work. The Republicans are trying everything they can to make it not work, and to make their prediction of a "train wreck" into a self fulfilling prophecy.
I notice you didn't address that part at all...because you can't. Republicans are out to destroy "Obamacare" however they can, whether or not it is good for America.
Instead, as is you usual MO, you key in on one piece of rhetoric and make that your entire case. The "train wreck" was metaphorical, just using the terminology that you had already established. Republicans were already stating that universal health coverage would be a disaster, even if they hadn't used the exact words "train wreck", long before Baucus made his statement.
You are pathetic.
WTFU that's nothing compared to the plans the power in Washington has for us.

<quoted text> Right. There is hope for you. No hope for Bob.
All I ask is historical proof for your Jesus character.

How about one (1) document written by his own hand? No?(was he illiterate?)

How about one (1) document written *TO* him, personally by someone? No?(he had no friends who were literate?)

How about one (1) document written about him by a non-christian historian, in the same or the very next generation where he supposedly lived?

no?

Interesting.... your Jesus is still an unconfirmed myth, then.

Your "get behind me satan" has **never** worked in the history of the world?
Likely because both your god, and your favorite, satan, are not real.
You are an idiot among idiots.
And if you think about it, that expression sounds a little homoerotic. What's Satan going to get behind him with?
