This is a 3v3 debate and it needs quite a few judges.

...it's not a new policy... it's just that DDO was built on an ancient burial ground, and that means the spirits of old rise again to cause us problems sometimes- Airmax1227

Need debaters as well (surprised that there isn't a single definitive defender of historicity yet).

Only die-hard Christians would take Pro on that debate. Anyone who relies on logic and/or reasoning knows that there is no definitive proof of his existence.

If you are fishing for an easy win, this is it. Might as well advertise this in the religion sub-forum to speed things up.

Well, the strong consensus within the field is that Jesus did exist (so there is quite a bit of scholarship that anyone can look at), and there are some good arguments that can be made, so I don't think that is entirely accurate (I know Wylted is somewhat anti-Mythicist and he is no die hard Christian).

I have advertised it there.
One is a maybe (depending on how the Spring Tourney goes).
The other seems like a no.
I have found judges and one other to join the Mythicist team, but that is all.

There was once a strong consensus that the world was flat too - doesn't mean they're right. Sure there can be good arguments made, but it's still an easy win for you since, at the end of the day, the only empirical evidence is text from a book.

Yeah, don't be too disappointed if no-one takes it. While there are plenty of Christians and believers on this site, I don't think you'll find a true challenge anywhere for this topic aside from other major religion forums around the web.

Well, do you want to judge it if we can find 3 people for the historicist team?
The mythicist team is now filled, we just need a few judges and the historicist team and we are ready to go.

I do trust that you will not be biased, but the rule for judges is to state religious position and position on if Jesus existed or not (so we can make it so no 3 judges that support mythicism and are atheists or historicity and are Christian are voting on the same debate).

That's understandable. I am an agnostic theist and have yet to arrive at my own conclusion on whether Jesus actually existed or not. So, in this debate I will either be convinced he did or didn't exist and have no preconceived opinion in that regard.
