    Ah yes, finally, a bit of truth about Jesus -- ALL MADE UP!

    The Jesus believers, of course, will insist that this evidence is PURE BUNK because, well, it is actual evidence -- something that doesn't compute with them.

    Sorry, no FOX News link for you moralists and gun freaks. Evidence proving the fakery of Jesus would be a major blow for the fake news channel.

    Witty riposte. :roll: How does that do anything to refute what's said in the article? Aren't "you people" all about "responding to the topic," and not making personal attacks?

    >>we'll know soon if Jeezus is real

    2 Timothy 3..But mark this: There will be terrible times in the last days. People will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boastful, proud, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, without love, unforgiving, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not lovers of the good, treacherous, rash, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God— having a form of godliness but denying its power.

    Leviticus 25:44-46

    As for your male and female slaves whom you may have:
    You may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are around you.
    You may also buy from among the strangers who sojourn with you and their clans that are with you, who have been born in your land, and they may be your property.
    You may bequeath them to your sons after you to inherit as a possession forever.
    You may make slaves of them, but over your brothers the people of Israel you shall not rule, one over another ruthlessly.

    Broadway, you're not even capable of defending your own history so the Jewish kid is going to have to do it for you. Quoting the Christian Bible might work for you and the other sheep, but the real refutation of Skep's post lies in much older and more meaningful diatribe. Jesus was not The Messiah, but he existed and is documented in The Talmud which predates the Roman nonsense mentioned in Skep's article link.

    Sorry Skep, The "Roman aristocrats" were out to destroy not just the soon to be Christians but the Jews as well.
    The Romans destroyed the Second Temple http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_Temple which had been re built on The Temple Mount in Jerusalem made possible by the accession of Cyrus the Great of Persia in 538 BCE. The Romans destroyed the second temple in 70 AD. The Jewish scholars, who up to that point had relied on spoken history started writing stuff down.

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Talmud

    You know I'm not here to defend the Bible Thumpers but there does exist an equally old source from those times (1st and 2nd centuries) that recognizes Jesus as the mortal man, son of Mary, teacher, rabbi and in possession of supernatural powers. But not The Messiah. That document(s) is known as The Talmud. It was written in the second and fifth century, but had been carried forward from hundreds of years earlier by word of mouth amongst the priests and elders.

    So, just saying that your article is insufficient proof of anything other than what we already know about the Roman aristocrats of the first centuries, and their attempts at rewriting history to suit their own agenda.

    Psalm 14...
    Godless fools say in their hearts,
    “There is no God.”
    They are corrupt.
    They do disgusting things.
    There is no one who does good things

    That still doesn't prove anything, since Jesus was not yet born when Psalms were written. Numbskull. And it certainly was not referring to Jesus then and IMO still doesn't.
