I am thinking of doing another debate on if Jesus was a historical figure or not (using a different method than I have previously). I have noticed that there are quite a few people that do not care about the arguments in this debate, but vote based on their views. I am looking for anyone that can vote without bias for if I decide to debate this.

Also, if anyone wants to debate this (I will take the stance that Jesus was not a historical figure), just say so here and I will set the debate up.

I actually thought you would be one of the first to reply. Thanks. BTW, I have never done a judge debate. You need 7 judges, right?

You can select as many judges as you like. It could be just one if that is what you choose.

I don't believe that there is such a thing as an unbiased judge, however I'm willing to be as impartial as possible if you like.

I think I am unbiased, I have an opinion but I don't particularly care much about my opinion...

An ELO floor of 2500 would probably take care of most of the popularity-contest voters.

That could be the case, but the topic of the debate is also a factor to consider. I have actually debated this topic in real life, and those that always seemed unbiased were almost completely against me, never actually addressing any point I brought up. I think it is best to try and find people who you think will be unbiased.

That would get rid of noob voters but not necessarily unbiased voters.

Go vote on one of my debates. I'm not that smart, so it'll probably be an easy decision.

Good luck. This is one of those many issues where people do not care for data and facts.

Jesus almost certainly existed, but there is little direct proof to support this. There is a tremendous amount of circumstantial evidence, however, and that is enough to convince many.

If you want a debate judged entirely based on the examination of proved facts, then the result will favor the lack of historic, concrete proof of Jesus' existence, if you can find individuals who reject scriptural accuracy.

If you find people who will judge scripture as verified fact, then the votes will go toward Jesus having been a real person.

It's that simple. There is no way to have an "unbiased" opinion on this subject, because the subject inherently focuses on the crux of the western cultural schism between secularism and a desire for theocratic rule.

I can vote without bias on a religion debate. I don't have a stance in regards to belief or non-belief, and take everything with equal weight until proven otherwise.

Yeah, although I think there's probably more of those voters at that ELO level than the word "most" might make someone think there are.

That would be great! I actually have seen your votes on other debates, and you seem to make very great votes
