What do you mean by "found a man with the name Jesus?"  Found him where?  There's plenty of people with the name Jesus.

Apparently found records or something about a man named Jesus and something about there being witness apparently they found this on a science channel. I doubt it and i think she mistaked something or just misunderstood.

If there were proof this site would not be here.

Well you don't have to be rude...? :l

How was I rude? I just stated a fact.

I at times assume i tend to have trouble like others understanding text as good or bad.

Yes there is a Jesus, when I was growing up he lived behind me, we went to the same high school.  His last name was Areal and we called him Jessy. (FACT)

All of the doG characters created by people throughout recorded history are just mythology.

:D lol

So i ask you is there proof that god or Jesus has ever existed?

For God, no. You can always find a religious apologist who claims there is evidence. But ask to see it and he invariably produces a Bible verse, a frozen waterfall, his boundless love, a mathematical equation, or some other non-evidence that is just faith or conjecture masquerading as proof.

Taking an agnostic, scientific approach to a historical Jesus: the evidence is scant. It's virtually impossible to confirm that Jesus existed or (if we assume he did exist) put together a historically valid portrait of the man, his life and motivations. There's more on this in another discussion.

I would argue even still.  There is more evidence and proof that all verifiable facts presented in the Bible are yet to be disproved with insurmountable sources, yet they are dismissed for one reason or another.  Yet the amount of proof that we have that Alexander the Great was a real person is a tiny fraction of the evidence compared to that for the Bible and we don't question his existence or conquests at all. 

I would argue even still. 

Being disputatious does not mean you are presenting a supported, coherent argument.

The Bible is the claim, not the evidence, that God exists.

There is more evidence and proof that all verifiable facts presented in the Bible are yet to be disproved with insurmountable sources, yet they are dismissed for one reason or another. 

This is entirely an supported claim.

You claim the Bible contains all verifiable facts. (But provide no evidence to support this.)
You claim the Bible has not been disproved. (A burden of proof fallacy.)
You claim there is "evidence and proof" that it has yet to be disproved. (But don't provide the evidence and proof.)
You claim that despite this evidence, the "facts" of the Bible are dismissed. (Accusing me of wilful ignorance.)

So where is the evidence? You keep claiming it exists. Apparently you know what it is. It's specious to claim I am ignoring evidence when you persistently fail to provide any.

Yet the amount of proof that we have that Alexander the Great was a real person is a tiny fraction of the evidence compared to that for the Bible and we don't question his existence or conquests at all.

We've established that you claim to have proof and now you tout the stupendous nature of that proof. But where is it? 

All you can do is persist in claiming that there is evidence, and tout the overwhelming, high quality of that evidence. But you can't actually show it to me.

This is why I conclude you don't have any. If you had it, you'd show it, and not play these stupid games.

It's an odd question. Among the religious god is considered eternal and everlasting, no beginning, no end. He has never existed in the sense of suddenly coming into fruition and then disappearing. As to the central figure in the christian religion there is scant verifiable evidence to the historicity of the man-god Jesus. He may of actually existed but whether he turned water instantaneously into wine or walked upon the sea unaided is a matter of conjecture.

I would be more concerned with discovering evidence, outside of a bronze age book, that supports the present day acceptance of a supernatural being. If there is a god(s) then he/she/it has a lot of difficult questions to answer about their absurd behavior towards the human race.
