I've spent more than a hundred posts, here, trying to get at the genuine, real historical evidence for the existence of Jesus, and all I've discovered is a thinly-sourced "expert consensus" that survives solely on the basis of directing ridicule at anyone who voices a disagreement.
Yah. This is happening on several forums lately - a concerted effort to argue that :
* Jesus existed * because there is a CONSENSUS of "experts" * based on the Gospels etc. as historical EVIDENCE * and anyone who disagrees is like a creationist or holocaust denier
I think the HJers are feeling the heat, and are desperately circling the wagons.
