Why? The text given here merely claims that there were contemporary writings about Jesus and his works, but the lack of those writings are exactly why many of us think he's entirely myth. Richard Carrier, an atheist historian, makes exactly this argument which I've linked to below.

While there are a lot of citations listed at the bottom of the text, I notice that they are (not surprisingly) Christian sources, and I didn't notice specific citations in the text linking to where you could find each fact (as people typically do in research papers and other scholarly works). It's just an attempt to "blind with sources", basically.




My girlfriend is mad at me. Perhaps I shouldn't have tried cooking a stick in her non-stick pan.
