I tell you what, if the bible is fake and Jesus didn't exist it must be one heck of a conspiracy to get that many people involved and for 1000's of people to still believe in it over 2000 years later, well!!! Nice work to them all if it is indeed a fake, BUT I put it to you that it is not. Jesus is in fact the most recorded person in the ancient world and his death is the best attested death of his time. There is no denying that Jesus existed. You are merely clutching at straws to bad mouth the Christian faith! I agree that there is doubt as to whether there is a God and if Jesus did indeed rise from the dead but that is why it is called faith. I am sure you have faith that next time you breathe your lungs will fill with air, even though you can see that air you believe that it is there, you can see the effects it has. Well the same can be said for people with a Christian faith. They can not see God but they can see the effects that he has on peoples lives and on what is going on in the world today. Had it occurred to you that you ought not to be so small minded and find something better to do that bad mouth religion. Maybe you ought to go out and help all those people in the world that the church is not helping! Just give it ago. There are 1000's of Christian men and women who have dedicated their lives to helping people in need and repairing broken lives. Do you not think that is somewhat more constructive than you website? I am not asking you to believe in God and Jesus and all that the Christian faith stand for just have some respect and try to stop being such a hypocrite.

Re: Deluded!!!!

Air can be seen. You give another bad analogy in an attempt to defend a delusion.

Look, if all you have to go on is "a lot of people believe", then why don't you adopt Gnosticism, Mysticism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam, or any of the other 10,000 religions that have been created by humans and other hominids prior to humans?

It is really quite easy to prove that there is no Jesus. But, then again, you have to be coming from a perspective that there is no Zeus either in order to accept the reality and evidence.

Jesus' "death" was wildly reported as true (many years later) as was his life. And your point is? So were many other man-gods with lives similar to Jebus reported as true during times prior to Jesus. Santa was also reported to shimmy down my chimney recently. Somehow, I am just not buying it (but then again, I don’t have a chimney).

I will say this. I have tried it both ways. I am far happier and content without fairy-tales than I was with them. Here is the shocker of all shockers: I have raised three children not to believe as well. Ha ha. And, they are so visceral about it that they are going around debating their other young friends about Christianity. It is just a matter of time and you guys are sunk. You tried burning the libraries and people who proclaimed science. Now you can’t get past the dissemination of information. Without you, we will get less guilt, more kindness, less killing and more personal happiness along with a general advancement of the human species.

With Jesus, your life is based on an anachronism that is simply not true. Without him, you are you. Don’t you value you enough to actually be you?
