The existence of Jesus? Not established history? Have you read the article you cited below? People from all over the world berlieve Jesus existed. Atheist Agnostic, Muslems, Christians. Why are they all wrong and a small group of philosophers right?
Many scholars debate the existence at all and consider it religious syncretism.
Based on what? 1st century Jews were not syncretists. They seperated from pagan beliefs. They were uncircumcised idol worshippers, pork eaters.

Not established, at all.
End of story.
No need to confuse you with the facts. Seems your open mind has slammed shut!
you really have very limited knowledge of the origins of your dogma. That is very sad.
Well i know more than you which is not saying much.
You think my nickname is prosaic and unimagintive?
Prosaic is unimaginative.
Oh, and stop citing Ehrman. I already illustrated how he is wrong about his historical Jesus claim.
Oh really? i missed that! Ehrman is wrong and you are right as far as the historicity of Jesus? What are your credentials. How much experience do you have in ancient history?
Early Christians could not even agree on the ressurrection,
If they did not believe Christ resurrected then they were not Christians. Sitting in a guarge all day does not make you a car.
which was clearly taken from Plato's philosophy.
An assumption in search of a fact.
Oh, and the contemporaries of your Gospel writes, like Galen and Celsus argued quite eloquently against such nonsense. Perhaps you need to start there.
I might look them up but your references carry little weight with me. You have not showed me much so far.

Look. You made a claim about Ehrman. I really don't care if he argued what you claimed or not. He is rather conservative and may have. And if so, he may be right. Just back it up with an actual on point quote or admit you can't.
I already did. If you have anything which refute then produce it.

Wrong. They were not Ressurectionists. There were many early Christian groups that had no "resurrection" dogma. In fact the Gospel of Mark is proof of that.

It's about equality under law; something that you refuse to recognize.
Oh, he's been watching that crazy Fox News woman who said women have ruined men by working, asking for equality, and all that other terrible stuff that makes men wet their pants because they can't rule women any more.

You're just mad because a multi-generational lineage of atheists never followed through for thousands of years writing down any evidence that God didn't exist.....an anti-Bible if you will.
Once they were crushed and destroyed by God for their disobedience and defiance , I guess the embarrassment and humiliation thwarted any ideas of writing down any lies they could dream up.
The same thing will happen to you when Christ returns, after which you willfully fall to your knees begging for mercy.
You pathetic tongue scrape.
Atheists don't have a Bible because they're not selling eternal salvation for mouthing 'I believe'. They don't knock on your door on Saturday morning while you're trying to have family time.

If they were crushed and destroyed by God, why are they still here? You make no sense.

Your threats do not work on sane adults. Even other Christians disagree with you on many things. The Bible says when Jesus returns there will be 1000 years of peace, and the judgment will then take place. But you say those who don't believe as you do will be judged at the time of his return. Geez. You people should get together and decide what you really believe and whether or not just to throw your Bible to the wind or not. You can't really believe the Bible if you keep making stuff up and adding to it to fit your personality, now can you?

Well, it may be the personality, conversation and good looks but I have this sneaking suspicion that the ability to hold oneself in check and not commit wholesale mayhem may not be in play.

Because God loves them enough to keep giving them chances to straighten up. I can tell you've never read the Bible.
