   I recommend this song if you need uplifting in Jesus name..... :clap:

I have heard many  Christians hymns / songs,   but that one  is one I have not heard before...  Jesus is just alight? < -- Where I come from, that is saying he is average lol He must have sat up all night to write those lyrics

Like  for example  - Joe plays baseball.. Is Joe really good at baseball?  .."Ack well he just alight at baseball" .. =  He is ok at it,.but could be better !!

Do they pronounce is  as Jesus ?  OR like many do and it sounds as if they are saying  Hey Zeus?   I know that may sound funny, but when I hear them say the name it does sound as if they are calling - Hey Zeus  lol

Does lack of evidence negate the existence of something?

Not necessarily. But it does mean that there isn't a reason to believe in the thing; i.e., lack of evidence of leprechauns doesn't negate the possibility that there are leprechauns somewhere, there simply isn't any reason to think that there are (ergo, until we find some leprechauns, it's perfectly reasonable to say that there are no leprechauns, or at least that there probably aren't leprechauns).

Try to realize it's all within yourself / No-one else can make you change / And to see you're really only very small / And life flows on within you and without you. / We were talking about the love that's gone so cold and the people / Who gain the world and lose their soul / They don't know they can't see are you one of them? / When you've seen beyond yourself then you may find peace of mind / Is waiting there / And the time will come / when you see we're all one and life flows on within you and without you. ~ George Harrison

So you agree with me, good! Now take your belief out of it and points raised were there is no evidence for his existence, this alone does not suffice as proof of Jesus not existing does it. Based on lack of evidence you can hold any belief you like, but you can't categorically say he did not exist. You can say there are reasons to believe he did not exist, and the counter is there are reasons that he did exist, and cases can be presented either way.

Jesus is spoken about and talked about by so many people over centuries etc from relevant regions to other parts of the world etc.

To suggest he did not exist would also suggest that there was an almost global conspiracy on an unpresidented scale and over 100s of years. If so then you also have to prove that conspiracy with proof and reasoning.

I certainly don't think that there was a conspiracy; but neither do I think that evidence demonstrates Jesus' existence, at this time. People having talked about him proves nothing; documentation would, but alas, there is no contemporaneous documentation of Jesus' existence. I think perhaps he did exist, but it would not be surprising in the least if he did not. In any case, his mere existence would not be step in the direction of proving his possession of magical powers, now would it?

People spoke of him wrote about him and believed in him shortly after him (relatively speaking), a whole history exists about him in scripture form all be it not perfect but it's documentation. If your rejecting the scripture as proof coz it's not gods word that's a bad excuse to leave it out, even if it's written by men (which it is), then it's still evidence relating to him. There maybe not that much else corroborating the scripture (maybe we just ain't found it yet), but scripture, people, regional and global indications of his existence. Now for you to reason he did not exist you have only option is conspiracy, because we know lack of evidence does not negate existence but at the same time you bring baggage which is denial of scripture as proof or documentation, denial of aural traditions about him and etc. Therefore you can only reason he did not exist is because over centuries, thousands and thousands people globally colluded to create this myth of his existence. If so then you have to prove it with reasoning and proof that such a conspiracy took place.

Well we first need to ask if this peson would know where to look for evidence. if he isn't aware of existing evidence, then he certainly wouldn't be one to say his perspective negates anything.

Whether you lack evidence or don't where to find it is irrelevant cause it still does not his existence.

If you approach it with baggage, ie, not considering scripture as evidence, then your coming with a bias, what ever that might be or what ever the reasoning for rejecting the only thing which relates to him the most is not a great academic approach is it?

Leave the baggage, you have scripture, aural tradition, other scriptures referring to him, regional and global references to him. If you come with baggage which rejects this outright from the beginning then you are being disingenuous towards the whole argument.

My point is simple, if you believe he did not exist, your only plausible reasoning is that it was all a conspiracy, if so you then have to substantiate it. Lack of evidence alone does not negate existence, but if you from the start reject and ignore certain sources and evidence then demand evidence, it's a bit hypocritical and simply arguing from ignorance.

A global worldwide conspiracy that spans thousands of years among disconnected people, would be harder to prove than the idea that Jesus doesn't exist. Jesus exist...

When you watch  trick  by people such as Dynamo...

Walk on water..




Walks down a building..



And many more like it - Levitation, walking through glass etc etc..

If he was back in the times of Jesus,  I am willing to bet that many would think he was from god  or gods son too...

My point is.. I think that if this Jesus was real, he may have been the Dynamo of his day and a few of the stories exaggerated from tales past around...

Unfortunately, scripture hasn't proven itself to qualify as documentation; it hasn't given us anything to set it apart from fiction. That's what I meant. No official records of his trial and execution, no census records, nothing. That's what I meant.

Precisely :) it's harder to prove reasoning for his non existence than for his existence, ie scripture, aural traditions, foreign scriptures references to him etc. I'm not trying to prove it either way, just putting some perspective and context.
