Did Jesus actually exist?

Posted by: UtherPenguin

*Waits patiently for flamewar*

  • Yes, the entire Georgian Calendar is based off of his birth, there is little historical evidence to suggest he did not exist.

  • No, most historical accounts of Jesus were written long after the time period in which he lived. There is little histoircal evecience to suggest that he lived.

  • He existing is the ONLY part of the bible that I believe. I do NOT believe he was a prophet of god.

  • Yea, he existed. I think the story's are amalgam of truth and fiction. Not the mystical, that is all garbage, but the historic. Some may be actually about him, some bits just attributed to him. But, yes, he existed.

  • For someone who multiple witnesses bore of and billions of people follow, it is logical to say he existed.

  • Jesus could walk on water. Ice is pure water. I can walk on ice, therefore I am Jesus. Are you saying I don't exist?

  • The question for people who do not believe in the Bible is not whether or not Jesus existed. But if he was the son of God or not. As a Christian, I believe he is, but that is irrelevant to the poll.

  • If jesus didn't exist, then why does the entire bible, historical texts, and many others come to exist. Plus, time was split because of him.

  • He founded Christianity.

  • Duh...

  • sure! he was a guy... and people said he did some fake stuff!

  • Whether or not he died on the cross and resurrected, there is a lot of evidence that proves he existed on this earth 2016 years ago.

No flamewar? That's one glorious relief.

Jesus walked on water. Ice is pure water and I can walk on ice. Therefore, I am Jesus.

That's because him existing is the ONLY part that atheists agree with.

We can now confirm that Jesus is real.

The nonexistence of Jesus is an unpopular view.

I don't know many who say that id didn't exist. No, that's untrue. I know no one directly who says he did not exist.

This is one of the rare subjects on DDO in which both Atheists and Theists can agree on.
triangle.128k says2015-04-05T15:36:25.5708054-05:00
Atheists and theists can agree on other things..
UtherPenguin says2015-04-05T15:37:56.8729285-05:00
But rarely if the topic related to Religion.

Atheists can be "religous." Theists can be "non-religious" just being classified as deists.
UtherPenguin says2015-04-05T15:40:40.8101758-05:00
I could see how the latter would work but what about the former?

@triangle an offended christian responds in 3... 2... 1...
UtherPenguin says2015-04-05T15:43:02.6429954-05:00
How can an atheist be religious?
retrogamer176 says2015-04-05T15:43:55.8765607-05:00
Not believe in a god, but follow the traditions.
triangle.128k says2015-04-05T15:46:13.9561023-05:00
@UtherPenguin They can follow a non-theistic religion like taoism or buddhism. I'm agnostic and I follow buddhism.

The Gregorian calender is NOT based off of Jesus' birth.

"@triangle an offended christian responds in 3... 2... 1..." One hour, two hours, three hours, still nothing. What are you basing your integrals on, seconds, minutes, hours, days, years? I guess you are still waiting.
triangle.128k says2015-04-05T19:03:51.7413026-05:00
I don't see how I'm offending any Christians, especially insanely far-right wing Christians.
triangle.128k says2015-04-05T19:04:29.8268795-05:00
Or are you talking about the Jesus walking on water joke?
retrogamer176 says2015-04-05T19:11:10.7796871-05:00
@triangle I was talking about the Jesus walking on water joke. And I'm surprised no hardcore Christians were openly offended yet!
