Historicity of Jesus

None of the 121 historians contemporary with Jesus wrote a word about him. Even his supermiracles — the zombie saints, the impossible eclipse and rising from the dead impressed them. But ask a Christian about this lack of evidence for the existence of a historical Jesus, and they will tell you all these historians wrote volumes about him. They will assure you that Jesus was even better documented than Julius Caesar. Of course, they can’t provide any of this evidence, but nobody doubts it exists. Christians have a strange notion of truth. If you need facts, it is perfectly ok to manufacture them, so long they promote belief in Christianity.

As Martin Luther said What harm would it do, if a man told a good strong lie for the sake of the good and for the Christian church… a lie out of necessity, a useful lie, a helpful lie, such lies would not be against God, he would accept them.
