Oh Yeah ?? According to Kris Kristofferson, Jesus was a Capricorn, he ate organic food...And in my opinion, Jesus is a myth, just as God is a delusion, and organised religion is a giant scam perpetrated on human society by get rich quick merchants.

He did exist only as a person though, not a spiritual person. Some random Roman soldier had an affair with Mary and she didn't want to tell anyone because of how conservative the society was back then so she said "it was a miracle" and considering how retarded people were in the 14th century they believed her.
Wrong, jesus never existed, like the torah, both bibles are a pack of lies and every bit of historical archaeological, chronological, geographical evidence supports that. The story of Jesus can be fully found in the mythical story of the “Epic of Gilgamesh, a Sumerian writing written many hundred of years before.

When you consider there were more than 35 documented writers of that exact time and place, yet not one ever mentions anything about jesus or the story. Then we have th glaring fact completely ignored by religious nutters, Herod was was dead years before the supposed event and the Romans never had any legal jurisdiction over Herod kingdom, Herod was a friend and Allie of Rome. The only Romans there were the Roman Ambassador and his very small praetorian guard.

The romans keep explicit records and nowhere throughout them all, including Pilate's memoirs is there a mention of a jesus, god or anything else to do with the fairy tale.

Then you have the fact the jews never had any form of written communication until the 3rd century BCE and the torah was not written until the 5th century and the old testament bible in the 7th century.

If you read the original Greek interlinear texts, you will see how stupid the believe in a god really is, when it admits it's a mythical fairy tale about Yahweh, a war god and one of many gods.

The only factual aspect of history revolving around the different factions of the god cult, are their never ending violence warmongering and fear of reality and the freedom to think.

I'll vote that Jesus actually did exist. It's too big a story to fake like that. Besides, Paul's original letters exist. Are you saying he made all that shit up?

Hilarious, the denialist insanity of god nutters is so pathetic, you'd think if they had any brains they'd accept the verifiable facts.
Jesus never existed, god never existed and nothing in the bibles is true as written, other than the slaughter carried out by god nutters through out history.
Considering the entire god cult is run on lies, elitism, hypocrisy, denial and suppression, it's not rocket science to understand the cult would say one thing and do another. That's the nature of the cult and it's entire history lies deception hypocrisy and so you'd expect this sort of primitive idiocy.
you sir are a biggot & a coward who lives in sin. While I may disagree with the following of scriptures with this person, this person at least has a faith.

'No one shall enter the kingdom of heaven, but by the right hand me the father. My son Jesus Christ.'(Corinthians:8:23)

You can vote all you like, but facts are facts and it's easy to see you've never read the letters of Paulini, or studied the cult properly. Like all cloned slaves, you just believe what the deranged preachers spew out and it's all wrong. Just as the claims of being good people, when the facts are the opposite, except when they are in the public forum. These low life morons keep sending their cloned slaves to fight their insane religious wars, yet all you fools do is fall in and get slaughtered, with not a whimper. Even if you survive they treat you like shit, which is the real indication of what your cult is all about. Ideological elitist control and power at any cost and still they suck you all in, hilarious beyond belief.

The church claims Paulini knew jesus, but he was born long after and only refers to hearing of the story and nothing more. Every thing you've been taught is lies and the reason why the cult kept the people as ignorant as possible, so they couldn't read the truth. It's really only been in the the last half of the 20th century that real information has become available and science has been able to reveal the truth. The cult still tries to deny the facts it has suppressed for thousands of years. But reality always wins in the end over delusionary illusions, nothing you or your cult can stop evolution rolling over you and your insane destructive cult. Your country is already in the throes of internal collapse, along with god nutters massacre s you all go crazy at you inability to accept reality that surrounds you and you're all so stupid, you can't even see it and if you could, you'd deny it. Hoping your god will come along and save you from yourself. Has never happened for anyone and never ill, no god no jesus, just growing religious insanity. The proof of that is all around the planet in every god cult society.

You idiots are so far up yourselves, the infantile threats and deluded crap never ceases to flow freely from your mouths.

Name one person who has attained eternal life and then present them to us idiot and don't drag out some crap about someone in your deluded fairy tales, you can't use a negative to support negative and all you and your religions has, is negative after negative.

the bible offers a content & happy like, not to mention eternal life.

I was born religious, I then strayed from the flock & began to doubt my lord. I am now saved and back in his arms.

I & other other Christian's can tell by the manner of yours' & others posts you are not at peace. The bible has the answers for you & God is offering his love to you.

I weep for you because I have trod your path.
Surrendering to the lord is not a weakness my friend for it offers spiritual salvation, on earth & eternal life in heaven...

I pray for people like you even more, because you are burdened to walk the path alone, without the refuge of faith or peace or the solace of love.
