1 - What are the facts of "the crucifixion." Can you tell me if there is any evidence (documents etc...) dating to the date of "jesus's crucifixion" and not hundreds of years after?

2 - When was the bible written?
3 - When was christianity created?
4 - What was the first "popular" religion?
5 - What were the beliefs of early judaism?

6 - How can "believers" refute the evidence of the existence of Homo habilis, Homo sapiens, Cro-Magnons and so on? (Please include the idea of Adam and Eve if you can)

Hi Boston,

Welcome to the forum.

(is)there any evidence (documents etc...) dating to the date of "jesus's crucifixion". . .


No.

When was the bible written?


Which bible? The earliest parts of the Hebrew bible (or TaNaKh)were likely written no earlier than the mid-8th or 7th century B.C. Many parts are post-exilic with additions and subsequent editing extending up to the 2nd century B.C.

The NT epistles (mostly Pauline) were likely penned in the 40's or 50's A.D. The gospels, beginning with Mark, were likely penned from the late 60's - mid 70's, Matthew and Luke likely 80's, and John perhaps late 90's or early 2nd century.

When was christianity created?


Christianity as basically interpreted today is primarily based on the writings of Paul. However, Pauline Christianity as the dominant "orthodox" religion was probably not achieved until the late 2nd century A.D.

What was the first "popular" religion?


Polytheistic nature religion.

#5

What were the beliefs of early judaism?


That depends on when you first want to define it as "Judaism". Monotheistic Yahwism as the dominant paradigm may have emerged as late as the 7th century B.C.

How can "believers" refute the evidence of the existence of Homo habilis, Homo sapiens, Cro-Magnons and so on?


They can't. At least not credibly.

Who were Adam and Eve?

Namaste'

Polytheistic nature religion.

Just a quibble, but probably more like animistic nature religion.
