Why do you believe that Jesus is not real? The Bible has been proven accurate, and was inspired by God, who is one part of the trinity, along with Jesus. Also, how can people call themselves followers of Christ (aka Christians) but refuse to believe that he exists? I want to hear your side of the story, and prove me wrong, although I know that to be impossible.

But science has also been proved real. What would you believe in? Some big dude in the sky that grants your every wish, or people that have actual facts to represent that god and jesus do not exist?

stupidape that is not a reliable source, the first sentence says that the new testament is accurate which included resurrection walking on water and curing incurable ailments. He could have simply been a parable like Noah. there were no birth or death certificates so there is no way to 100% confirm he existed. Also I said it is reasonable to assume he COULD have not been real, not that he was not real.

As an atheist I am sure that Jesus did exist.
As an atheist I am 100 % sure that a god never existed, (except the man made ones)..

"Well a lot of the people in the bible were not real, like the main character God, so it is reasonable to assume that Jesus could have not been real as well." jo154676

We can't be 100% sure God doesn't exist. I'd guess there is about a 68% chance or so that Jesus existed. I think he was a Hebrew and a Jew that was persecuted by the Romans and lost his sanity. The Bible has some historical facts correct, there are Jewish accounts of Jesus, and there are Roman accounts.

Jesus of Nazareth was most likely real. Jesus that could walk on water and the son of God, probably not. In other words as the debate is typed, I agree.
