It's also politically incorrect to say anything which challenges modern day orthodoxy which you find represented here by Bucky Ball.

RE: What is the general opinion on the existence of Jesus?
Since I have said it's not possible the come to a conclusion, one way or another, concerning the matter, the whiny Fuckwad above has only demonstrated he has never actually READ or followed or participated in ANY thread concerning the existence of Jebus, and can't handle his dot-connecting bullshit being attacked, rather than actually present any real, historically supported and substantiated, possibility. In fact if he had ever actually followed any real thread on the subject here the idea my opinion is "orthodoxy" is revealed as 100 % changed. When I came here, it was 100 % sure in favor of existence. Fulton (who actually knows history from bullshit) taught me, maybe there are other ways to look at things, and we still may not agree. So, db, go fuck yourself, and PLEASE, stop your whining, dot connecting, and LYING.

As Crossan says, the Gospels are an invented structure, in which

Stop quoting yourself.

It's annoyingly spammy.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

I don't speak for any other atheist but myself, but while I'm unsure if he existed, I'm certain that either finding is absolutely irrelevant.

Um.....who?

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.
