18. The best arguments against Jesus being a real person are:

 

1. The writings of Paul, who states clearly that Jesus was a spiritual, not a corporeal being

2. The fact that there are no historic sources outside of the Buybull attesting to Jesus existing, outside of “people say he existed”

3. The fact that sects of the early church believed he was not a corporeal being

4. The fact that there is nothing at all in the lifestory of Jesus as portrayed in the Buybull that couldn’t be garnered from the beliefs and dogmae of other contemporaneous religions of the time. There doesn’t need to be even a single “real” person to serve as the genesis of the Jesus story as all of the elements already existed in the myths of the day, anymore than a real person needed to exist upon which to base the myth of Zeus. In fact, the story of Jesus makes every effort to conform his story to that of other godmen of the era. That’s how they “proved” Jesus was a god to the people of his time - his life imitated the life of other gods that people were already aware of.
If I were to vote in a presidential
primary today, I would vote for:
Joe Biden
