He is a lunatic who has never been taken seriously by the academic community   
His theory is based off of Jesus's travels being sort of similar to the Roman Emperor Titus based off of some guys accounts. He mad the FAR leap that the Romans Invented the Peaceful messiah to keep the warlike people of Judea in line.   
The only people attending his lecture are going because it's cheaper than going to a comedy club

More then likely you are right but you can`t write him off totally.

He might surprise us.

So you're telling me it's laughable to think that Christianity was founded as a deliberate fabrication to keep people under control. Yes because that notion is silly! Absolutely ridiculous, it's far less silly to believe a man could walk on water

You and William of Ockham need to have a serious chat i suspect
User avatar #87 to #58 - secretary (10/11/2013) [-]
Believing that he existed as a historical person does not equal believing he walked on water. You're retarded
#93 to #87 - anon (10/11/2013) [-]
yea, so why are you arguing the point? christianity and jesus are different. odds of humans living named "Jesus" over a hundred year period are pretty good at least one guy was named that.
User avatar #35 to #11 - ronyx (10/11/2013) [-]
Well to be honest a lot of common folk back then were utterly stupid and would try to explain natural phenomena to acts of angry gods.

Guys... guys...

listen guys...

I-no seriously listen...

I think Jesus was probably some Jewish guy who was religious and stuff...

and things just got blown way out of proportion and exaggerated.

A bit like Chuck Norris.
Because over time, and over 60-100 years of it beeing passed on, without any actual written accounts, things can be distorted.
I, an atheist, think that he was real, but not the son of god but rather the leader of one of the many religious cults in that region at that time, that worshiped gods that usually had the ability of ressurecting.
User avatar #70 to #31 - commontroll (10/11/2013) [-]
I'm Christian and respect your opinion, because it's a rational one. This theory in the post is just ignoring plenty of evidence, and the guy might as well be wearing a tin foil hat.

Yea. Totally. Like intolerance towards those with different beliefs.
User avatar #199 to #187 - zzforrest (10/11/2013) [-]
Please site an example, because there really isn't one. Intolerance is political. The only form of forced conversion is repention; you don't even have to convert, you just have to recognize that you have done wrong. PLUS the new covenant as well as "faith" christians ( a new trend following closer to Jesus's teaching ) shows the sins that you would have to repent for are now null; ergo, if you faillow faith christianity you find that intolerance towards those with different beliefs is not what they follow, but rather what you yourself are following.

Well if he does have valid evidence and can prove his point it will change a lot of stuff.

America will probably have a few big swings in politics as well as a few other primarily christian countries.
#167 to #158 - lastkingofx (10/11/2013) [-]
This is going to go the way every argument does about anything, from politics to religion to plot holes in Star Wars: this argument will come out, people will be flabbergasted for a time, atheists will feel superior for a few months, until Christian authors and scholars come out with responses and rebuttals that squash that theory, and then the music will end, people will find their chairs and the entire fun exciting argument (SARCASM) will start all over.
User avatar #189 to #167 - turtletroll ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
Well you can`t say every argument goes that way.

#212 to #189 - lastkingofx (10/11/2013) [-]
Your argument is riveting.

It`s not an argument and never was. You`re wrong and i`m right.
#215 to #213 - lastkingofx (10/11/2013) [-]
You've proven that. Without a doubt. Empirical evidence at its finest.
User avatar #216 to #215 - turtletroll ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
The evidence wasn`t empirical so we should argue some more.

Please argue with me. I get lonely

lmao man. Alright, lets do this thang.
User avatar #219 to #217 - turtletroll ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
Let`s not do it. I don`t think it`s ethically right for us to argue like this.

I`m always right
#220 to #219 - lastkingofx (10/11/2013) [-]
There are enormous amounts of stories out there similar to the story of Jesus, not in everyway, but strong similarities float throughout history. People have already made the argument that Jesus never existed -because- of these stories. Unless the man has some pretty legit super-secret papyrus out there proving this he's not going to have a chance. The bible has been criticized over and over again and scrutinized by religious scholars, and people without a doubt -looking- to disprove anything within it.

You've got me worked up mother ****** , start arguing. I'm lonely too.
User avatar #221 to #220 - turtletroll ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
Can`t argue with that..

If it wasn`t ******* wrong. Jesus existed because he did and he`s the son of god cos god told me he was and he also told me ur wrong and a fagot

I`m 17 now but you can get people as young as 14 trying to join but it`s kinda accepted at 16 being the youngest age.

And to be honest it`s not as bad as people think. If you knock someone down and they don`t want to keep fighting then you help them up and they walk off to the side. People don`t really take it as far as kicking when they`re down and you hardly see many injuries aside from broken knuckles or a nose
User avatar #226 to #224 - turtletroll ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I`m sorry but could I honestly argue against that point. There`s a reason it`s called faith and not facts.

There must be something to argue over
#227 to #226 - lastkingofx (10/11/2013) [-]
Well how about this, look into some of the evidence in the book Case for Christ, written by a former atheist. (not a major point I recognize but the author began looking to disprove a lot of things), and I'll look more into this link. We can reconvene in a week.
User avatar #228 to #227 - turtletroll ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
I can`t remember what I had for lunch never mind an appointment to an argument I set up last week so how about we argue on something more equal like the right to bare arms

I support it.

Thats because if you gave every English man a gun it would take one week for there to be one englishman left. Your soccer firms make American gangs look like school yard bullies.

They'll just do the same thing they do with Fossils

"the devil wrote it to test our faith"

or some crap like that.

What did they say about fossils?
User avatar #40 to #37 - strifethethird (10/11/2013) [-]
Some of the Hardcore believers thing that the Devil, and some even say God, put fossils in the ground to test their faith.
#41 to #40 - magerogue (10/11/2013) [-]
Ahh ok. Christianity can get pretty retarded at times. Just for the fact that they don't believe in evolution I rage all the ******* time.
User avatar #42 to #41 - strifethethird (10/11/2013) [-]
I use to rage too, but i learned that you just gotta let them do what they do, as long as they don't try to force their **** on you. It's like getting mad at a 10 year old for still believing in Santa.
#44 to #10 - lordraine ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
It's not. There's conclusive evidence that Jesus was a real person who existed. The idea that it was made up is absurd. He'd have to conclusively debunk a mountain of evidence just to revert the issue to neutral, and then he's got to prove beyond reasonable doubt that it's a conspiracy.

If you knew anything about this, you'd know it's going to be the equivalent of everyone having to take this guy seriously for an hour because we're obligated to hear him out before calling him an idiot.
#49 to #44 - Takeru (10/11/2013) [-]
Give one piece of this "mountain of evidence."

The best claims people make, those of Josephus, were added centuries after the original texts were written and are no more legitimate than fanfiction.
#149 to #49 - lordraine ONLINE (10/11/2013) [-]
- Give one piece of this "mountain of evidence.
The tax records from the time. The fact that over a dozen different sources that are neither Christian nor Roman reference a "Jesus of Nazareth." The census that was taken, which you might have heard of, possibly.

That's three. You're welcome.

Apparently the accounts of a credibl, top-tier historian at the time doesn't matter (Luke). Also, the fact that Jesus was mentioned outside of both the Biblical and Roman literature. Not to mention that the people of the time were so stubborn that they'd have to see a mirical to even consider someone the messiah (look at the fact that the Jews didn't accept him).
Then not to mention that whole deal where Christians were prosecuted for like ******* 300 years by the Roman gov't. Why would a government that was trying to promote the spreading of a religion murder thousands (if not millions) of people who were practicing it?
Oh well, you're not allowed to lie on the internet. So this is indisputable.
User avatar #52 - guyfunnyjunk (10/11/2013) [-]
If this was true governments and corporations would just sweep it under the rug cos it's not good for either of them so even this gets disproven you won't be able to tell if it was false.
User avatar #60 to #52 - departed (10/11/2013) [-]
Except, way back when, the pope controlled the government, the pope and his closest followers ruled over all, they were the ones who wanted the power, not the government.

If the new testiment was written to control the masses, then why did the Roman empire execute Christains before embracing the religion?

they didn't want the Christians pulling the same **** they used the story to get rid of with the Palestinians and tried to **** em up before they could be a problem. just a theory but why the **** not

Nothing is going to come out of this and no Christians are going to leave their religion. Christianity will just say "That's not true because God says so" and just like that everyone returns to their everyday business. Christianity will pretty much always exist and I really don't mind because I don't care what Christians believe as long as they leave me alone.
#15 - anon (10/11/2013) [-]
Christianity was an adoption of the Roman cult of Mithras, modified to fit the preexisting Jewish dogma. It wasn't invented by Roman Aristocrats anymore than the Catholics invented Christmas. It was just a re-brand, like every other religion since the Mesopotamians and Egyptians.
