Re: Destruction of Jerusalem 70CE prophecy
jaywill,

Dogma can be right sometimes.

Dogma is not untrue, simply because it is dogma.

But you were asked for evidence, gave none, & when this was pointed out you evade by suggesting that your evidentially vacuous dogma might not be false. Evasion.

Re: Destruction of Jerusalem 70CE prophecy
jaywill,

I view the modern "Jesus the Myth" critics to be like modern Holocaust deniers.

Outrageously deceitful, the two are nothing like the same, theres tons of evidence for the holocaust & none for Jesus.

Where are the protests of the mythic invention of a Jesus of Nazareth in the first and second century or third century?

In the same way that there are no protests of any of the other thousands of self proclaimed mystical god-like-spiritual-I've-got-a-hotline-to-heaven figures means they must exist? The Mormon founder Joseph Smith must be telling the truth? Mohammed was the real deal?

Are you that myopic as to not be able to see what a nonsensical thing you just posted? At least we know Joseph Smith & the likes of Mohammed were real, not so for Jesus.

Re: Destruction of Jerusalem 70CE prophecy
jaywill,

Where in the first three centries of CE are those protesting that there never existed a Jesus of Nazareth? Such people pop up around the 18th,19th century AD (CE).

Hence you're here.

Firstly, I'm not protesting that there never existed a historical Jesus, I just am forced to accept that there isn't any extra-biblical evidence that can lead me to conclude that there was such a person.

Secondly, where in the first three centuries after Mohammed's life were the protests that he never existed?

The point is that people protesting or not is utterly inconsequential to the question as to whether somebody actually existed, or not. That's why your point was so silly.

Re: Destruction of Jerusalem 70CE prophecy
Jaywill,

But I think at the root of it, Jesus seems "troublesome" to some people. So they are more willing to believe in other ancient figures who have far less historical confirmation of their existence.

How can you have less than zero historical confirmation? According to Wiki, Josephus lived from AD37- c100. In other words the alleged Jesus died before he was born, in other words he is as much in the dark about the existence of Jesus as I am.
