    But all we get is wishy washy stuff about someone who was supposed to be a really important person , maybe the second most important person ever ?

    And why is he white with blue eyes in the pictures ?

    Because the area he appeared in was an area of people with middle Eastern characteristics

    So either the portrait fellas got it wrong or he was a dark skinned bloke or he didn't exist 🤷
    We can narrow it down to when halleys comet was low in the night sky

    Ever heard of the sea peoples and the bronze age collapse. Jesus was very much n the iron age some 1300 years later.

    Indeed. Although there weren't many trains at that time...

    Normal TV channels

    A button to switch if you are religious and want all the silly nonsense

    Get rid of all the daft decorations in the shops

    Give the money you spend to the NHS or the homeless

    Call it the mid winter festival
    You can do all of that yourself.

    Nah mate. I just respect people who have faith and who use it for comfort, strength, etc. Moderate people with good intentions. I don't like the hard liners, evangelists and the crew at the top of the pile who use religion as a way of advancing their power and wealth at the expense of others. to me there is a difference, a massive difference. See it like this. You hated Blair and you dislike Starmer. I very much doubt that you hate every member of the labour party.

    I've no problem with people who don't believe in god, i don't myself, and i have no problem with a good solid debate either way. The problem is that neither side listens to each other and there's always a definitive line trotted out over a subject that is incredibly complex and cultural. Attack the fanatics and the hard liners, by all means.

    Iím not religious at all but there does seem to be a smug glee from some in telling moderate normal religious people that itís all made up.

Most people like solid proof of some sort to believe in such things so if you could produce some (actual proof and not just some writings from the bible) then I’m sure a lot of the posters on here would be rational and humble enough to accept that with solid evidence Jesus both existed and performed miracles as the son of god.

    But since you’ve already handwaved away the discussion about his birth, “why should the precise date matter”, no doubt hard evidence shouldn’t matter either as long as you simply believe.
    I think you have missed my point. I asked why should the PRECISE date matter - I think you will find that this is one of those hair-splitting discussions which sceptics will naturally seize upon. Does it really matter if academics suggest a range of 2 to 3 years on an event which occurred two thousand years ago? There is a good summary of the evidence here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Date_of_birth_of_Jesus.

    None of the early non-Biblical references to Jesus deny his existence. Even TBG doesn't deny it!
