"Most 'scholars' today" vs. New AtheistsEdit

It is unfair, to put it mildly, to create an article on "historical Jesus" and claim how most of today's scholars agree Jesus existed and lived in accordance to gospel. It's more likely that majority of "most scholars" are theologians, which makes them hardly objective. Those who based their counter-argument on "New Atheists" and their writings and speeches are facing the same problem.--౪ Santa ౪99° 17:34, 20 May 2017 (UTC)

TWood I have no doubt that it is. So is it true that you know of zero mythicists who have a teaching job at a major university (in a relevant department like a religious or history dept.)?

Follow up. Do you ever worry that your agreeing to debate a mythicist validates their views too much?

Bart 1. I don’t know of any in the fields of NT/Early Christianity/Classics/Ancient History/Early Judaism. 2. Yup.

See: Pilate stone Miistermagico (talk) 02:00, 17 November 2017 (UTC)

That has absolutely nothing to do with the Historical Jesus. Nobody doubts that Pilate, Herod, and some other members of the ruling elite mentioned in the Gospels were actual people.Smeat75 (talk) 01:03, 18 November 2017 (UTC)

Dear Smeat75, How can you be so sure "Nobody doubts?" Have you questioned every one? The Pilate stone presents physical evidence that at least one main character in the Jesus story did exist. This does not prove Pilate had Jesus crucified but it does suggest this incident may be fact. Miistermagico (talk) 08:56, 23 November 2017 (UTC)
