You are correct to a point. I do not know if he was real and you do not know if he wasn't. Now people can say yea or nay but fact is we in reality will never know. He cannot be proven or disproven. He could be real or a work of fiction. We will never know.
ALL of the circumstantial evidence points to him being a fictional character. The theory is that religious followers wrote pious fiction to sort of bring the people together in and/or around the exile in Babylon. That's one theory, there are others. Suffice it to say that very few Biblical scholars believe Moses wrote the Pentateuch.

When Christians and atheists debate the question "Does God exist?" atheists usually assert that the entire burden of proof rests on the Christian. This is not true. As Christian philosopher William Lane Craig has stated, when an interrogative (such as Does God exist?) is debated each side must shoulder the burden of proof. This is unlike debating a proposition such as "God does exist," where the burden of proof rests entirely with the affirmative side. It follows then that when debating the question of God's existence, both the Christian and the atheist are obligated to provide support for their position. The Christian should insist that the atheist provide proof as to God's alleged nonexistence. That puts the atheist into a logical bind.
Craig may be technically correct, assuming that both sides agree upon the meaning of "God." The atheist who denies this proposition is saying that a being with all the qualities that define God does not, in all probability, exist. That's a positive statement about the real world. Among other things, it implies that no matter where we look we will never find God. Evidence is needed. We might call this the "strong" or "assertive" position for atheism. The theist, of course, is saying that there is good evidence that such a being exists. Again, that's a positive statement requiring support. In Craig's example both sides have a burden of proof, though not necessarily equal.
LOL ... that is known around here as a bunch of malarky(snookered by a lot of malarky), atheists have no reason to believe that there is a god and have certainly even less of a reason to even debate it!! Only certain individuals have chosen to participate in such debates because it can be fun for a depater!

Atheistic Scientists were Humiliated As Their Junk DNA Evolution Paradigm recently Collapsed
Anti-theistic scientists, Ken Miller, Ayala, Dawkins, Collins, Falk and other junk DNA proponents made failed observations about DNA, such that their Darwinian evolution paradigm has collapsed. Not that long ago, junk DNA was being defended as an important element of the Darwinian evolution paradigm ... The question now seems to be whether Ayala, Dawkins, Collins, Falk and other junk DNA proponents will continue to defend junk DNA, whatever they call it?- Rob Crowther,PhD
Evolutionary Biologist Richard Sternberg discusses modern genomics and the collapse of evolutionists junk DNA theory.

You mean to tell me that evolution didn't create the retarded ape known as Man. I guess I'm going to have to stop worshipping at the altar of science. What's next, I wonder. Maybe a rock concert where I can smoke dope and idolize a bunch of strange people who think distortion is music. There's always the Government that's giving away free money, or a best, think that money does grow on tree. Hollywood, yep Hollywood, where actors are like two year olds that can't keep their clothes on for five minutes and believe that aberrant sexual behavior is the new normal. God, please, protect the innocents. I've decided to become a sports junkie in a world where everything is real. At least the PED's are real.

still refuse to answer where you learned about this god you believe in? because you know you learned about the myth from the bible you yourself admitted is completely the work of humans....

you admitted that you worship a man-made god, but yet you cannot admit it to yourself...classic cult mentality...classic.

what Replay forgets is that most atheists are just acknowledging that all the man-made gods have been proven false and there isn't one teensy shred of evidence that any god, gods or goddesses ever existed...

even thought he has been told this many, many times....

So do you believe in evolution or do you accept that the theories are the best explanation you have based off of the evidence.

You said everything was there before TBB. What actually was there before the TBB? Use detail!
We don't know.

So what is wrong with saying "we don't know"?

One other thing. We are trying to find out, using a methodology (observation and logic) that has worked pretty damned well up until now.

You on the other hand seem to accept a pat answer i.e. Goddidit, but with absolutely no backing other than ancient goat-herders with visions claimed Godidit. They also claimed serpents talked, dove's blood cures leprosy, God told them to commit genocide, and that their supposed omniscient God could feel regret.

mmmm. Shouldn't be too hard to decide which way to bet.

Oh wait, I forgot.

The men with visions promised you would get to live forever if you believed their malarkey. That changes everything.

Just wond'ring what is up in Congress?
Already thought of that one headline about the making of weapons rather than to take aways, to say in the right
that to production to create such a tool?
The thing I was thinking about and not to be so of proper the low terms to use one?

To self in defence too... defendce defend yeah when I get the language pack down to evoleve enough alone...

I was thinking today this...

I wonder what was in existence first after Some facts which must have come through some Knowledge?
The diversity to what really lies in we don't know or we don't care to know as far as what Sckience *was ist das a sckience to free fall card and a joker* I mean to myth in it mythology.. to a great in Mythology to Religion...

The beginning an end to what it was for the middle or?

I mean I am sure great beginnings a great begin to have been so fortunate to have been placed into earth or onto?
Gods and to where God really lies and what God really is...

I mean who can ponder on that for how long? It is a reverent
hahahha not what I meant to relivence to a rely- relative

To speaking in conversations much of it has yet to be pondered on I suppose to questions un answered but to what then in their Bible's read to speak of and about to utmost Knowledge as they do they teach us or preach to us?

I am just wondering...

Anyways to Chemicals that is to get back with a bit more to Natural nutural as in soil to what there is in that too Organics my system isn't all adapted to it maybe so for mushrooms they are different in it's texture than regular mushroom and I honestly already have thought about eating the wild ones that grow on trees well at their base in mid town too, just walking along...
They say they are poisoness so what about man made chemicals then they can be that too...

I think maybe what they need is some are some Toddlers in Congress and let them get ahead of themselves...cheering them all on as they are speaking...

To see that day come...meanwhile sitting on a pot trying to get the shit out...

Literally....
