Um, no.

Forgeries by later xhristards are not "non-christian" evidence.

It is, in fact, just a jesus freak wet dream.

But surely we have discussed this before.

Well at least Free didn't do the reading or it would have included a postcard from Pontious Pilate to Tacitus and a patent by Paul for the process of Christian anointing LOL  Dance

You have never experienced anyone's intellect, let alone mine, and certainly not your own.

We had a number of "messiahs" mentioned in Josephus and the New Testament who came to bad ends with their followers. We had the Essene "teacher of righteousness" who was executed and a century later his followers were awaiting his resurrection and return.
So to me, it does not seem unlikely Jesus was simply more of the same. The gospels are of course, tall tales. To invent a Jesus of Nazareth from whole clothe seems to me to be rather unlikely. That Jesus was not born in Bethlehem, and was not from the line of David caused Matthew and Mark to invent the infant narratives, which to me suggests that Jesus did in fact exist, but was rejected as not fitting the prophecies of Isaiah et al. The Jews of Jesus's day knew he did not fit the prophecies.

Playing the odds, it just seems likely Yeshua Ben Joseph of Nazareth existed, get executed and had some people expecting his immanent return. Which didn't happen and thus Christianity mutated rather wildly.

I read somewhere that Tolkien first called him Bingo Baggins, but changed it to Bilbo at the last minute. Thank goodness for that!  Whistling

I found this one under your door mat. It appears to have runes.

Yep, but since I will be falsely accused again of starting another one of these Jesus H. Christ threads I will not be participating.

I'm out.

While tales of Middle Earth are fun, the fans of those works are not hell bent on running your life, our politics, this nation based on those tall tales.  The Bible tall tales fans are. I wish we could all ignore the Bible, like say, Hesiod's Theogony, but the Christian morons make that impossible.

Well, next time a Jehovah's Witness (or some other Jesus freak) quotes the Bible at you, read him the following:

"And they shall stand in despair before the white cliffs of the world, and shall chant from their empty tomes in vain, for their words are nothing! And Erú shall prevail against His enemies and they shall be cast into the Void, for their enchantments are naught and their gods are helpless before Him." (The Silmarillion, 17:82)
