Hi All,.

I was born into a Roman Catholic family. Around 20 years ago I stopped practicing religion. I said to myself what’s the point! I am busy with other stuff and religion is just an extra burden on me. So I quit it and got on with life. Recently I started to question the meaning of life so I started to search. I discovered the following information.

Did Jesus exist after all?

Independent Non Christian sources on the existence of Christ Jesus

1 -Cornelius Tacitus Non Christian  (56 – 117AD) historian and Roman Senator in a passage ‘Annales, book 15, verse 44’ refers to Christ, Pontius Pilate and a mass executions of Christians. General scholarly view considers Tacitus to be authentic

 

2 – Flavius Joseph a Romano-Jewish historian (37-100AD) Book 20 Chapter 9,1   "the brother of Jesus, who was called Christ, whose name was James" Modern scholarship has almost universally acknowledged the authenticity of the reference

Romans getting sloppy all of a sudden, just in time to make a miracle happen (since we know a miracle has to be poorly documented, else it's not a miracle).

Well, I have not researched it much..  But...  My default position is..  Church said it?  Church scammed it.  I don't buy it till they can sell it (with evidence).

Even these rationally explicable events were not explicable , and they were actual "miracles" , the hard (impossible) work of proving that a god exists , still lies before you.

I doubt anyone can explain the second to last one with Alexandria da Costa, but I saw something similar to it a few years ago concerning a holy man from India. He is in no way a devotee of the Christian faith and claims that his ability to live without food and water comes from Shiva.

Some info here: http://abcnews.go.com/Health/International/man-eat-drink/story?id=1...

and here: http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/south_asia/3236118.stm

The man even claims to have done it for decades. Whether or not that's true, he is certainly a man who would be considered an apostate of the Christian faith. This is hardly a thing of God, but a thing of exceptional biology.

Lots of weird stuff?  Can you predict it and recreate it?  No?  Coincidence..  Or BS..

Perhaps present some questions "based on facts."
