  1. Probably because he didn’t have a good publicist. A good PR man is SO important to getting the word out, especially when communications aren’t instantaneous like they are today. All those disciples were just laid-off fishermen, and layabouts, you know.

    • Hello Dennis. You think an all knowing god would have waited until there was twitter and other social media for him to blast his news over. Hugs

  2. That’s because Jesus was a savior construct of the assumed Jewish profit Daniel some unknown centuries earlier than the supposed miraculous appearance. Or not.

    • Hello Nation. I am becoming more supportive of Jesus mythicism. I just do not see any other reasonable position. Hugs

  3. A made up character is the obvious answer.
    If a genuine historical character existed – someone who people truly believed was divine – then there was always the chance forensic/archaeological evidence would uncover the fraud.
    While the illusion is maintained then history will never uncover the man behind it all because he simply was never there in the first place.

      • It is all the accumulative evidence – or rather, lack thereof.
        If there was a real bloke that they tagged all this divine stuff on t then eventually he would be found out ….
        But so far … well. 🙂

  4. Neither were there any mention in records in the Temple at Jerusalem which would be odd enough since he was being put to death by the Romans and nor were there any mentions of him in the records that went to Rome of this Jewish Zealot being caught and crucified. It was almost as though someone created him as an afterthought to tell a story.

    • Hello David. Great points. Yes I think the religion got away with it because the made questioning his existence a taboo. Now the conversation is happening. Hugs

    • This is something I never considered before and it is a glaring omission.
      Would a record of such an event as the supposed crucifixion of Yeshua have been mentioned in Temple Records as a matter of course, David?
      Are there other (similar ) incidents / individuals that were recorded in the Temple records and is there anywhere we can read them?

      Thanks
      Ark.

  5. Because he’s not a REAL person! He’s a rehash of several older gods! & so is his mother! THE ENTIRE STORY. Which doesn’t diminish the power of “his” message one bit but for some stupid reason, Xtians just HAVE to insist that Jesus is a REAL person & all those other gods & all those other stories of virgin births & the dying god with a mourning mother & other crying followers who rose from the dead so that crops would grow & babies would be born for another year are FALSE …. because that’s MYTHOLOGICAL & Christianity is REAL.

    Ya know, fuck all that shit. It’s only religion.
