No. Stories about Jesus have failed to fulfill the majority of biblical prophecies about the predicted messiah. This is true even given that the New Testament writers were aware of these prophesies and clearly attempted to attribute Old Testament prophecy to Jesus.

Thanks for accepting. I have provided evidence, have you? :)

You have provided sourcing. You will need to present an argument/s that lists the sourcing as a reference if I am going to refute your arguments. As it stands your have not tried to support your burden of proof.

I prefer to back up my claims with evidence. Why haven't you provided evidence?
MurdocNiccals

Con

I haven't stated anything that needs to be proved. I've only said that statements need to be supported. You have claimed that one mythical figure is the same as another and I've only asked you to support that.

Can you prove that either exists?
If both are legend does it matter that similar claims are written about both?
are any texts written about either reliable?
If all texts written about both are fiction are there third party objective sources that can match the two as the same?

That would be a start on your end to convince me.

I have provided two links to back up my claims, yet you have provided none, sir. I am wondering what you want me to prove, hun. Be specific, as I am mentally disabled, but high functioning.

Are you trolling? What do you want me to prove besides the evidence I posted?

I never did get why you disliked this girl anyway. I can't even remember the first account.

Spoiler alert: He is. Still worth a read of the book though.
