Because people believed that he existed. I've explained this to you before. I don't know why you keep asking this question.

As for the rest of it, I'm not touching it with a ten-foot pole, as it's nothing but insults, and as such requires no response.

Please... you really believe that the calendar would change based on the idea that someone did not exist but enough people believed in Him existing, so they changed it.

Yes. If people believe something, they make decisions based on that belief. At the time that the calendar in question was created, Jesus' existence was accepted as historical fact, even though it wasn't, because everyone believed that he had existed.

Debate what? That people don't take actions based on their beliefs? Are you seriously defending that proposition?
