Yes there are. Plenty of evidence.<quoted text>Yes, defended by Christians naturally. You do know that there are NO contemporary accounts for Jesus outside of the bible, right? Anything written about Jesus was written decades AFTER is supposed death.
So Christians cannot defend their own sources? How else could they? You are accusing them of lying, being biased?
Think about that logically.
If the events DID happen ... how else is it to be reported? By those that witnessed it. And if they witnessed it, then they would be convinced that Jesus was God, and that it was all true.
What you are really saying if that you do not trust all the thousands of people during that time period of telling the truth. You are saying you don't trust people. You are saying they are primitive, and superstitious, and backwards. That is what you are saying.
And that tells me that you are a very bad person, and very contemptuous, and that you, yourself, cannot ever be trusted. If you do not see the folly of your own utterly irrational mind and total lack of logic ... the very notion that those that had been there 2000 years ago are not qualified to tell the truth, but you are? You know better than all those people back then?
Please, I dare you to rationalize your position. I dare you.
