And no, I'm not a Bible-tard. [/quote] [quote:david 16910407:MV8yMDY2NDc2XzM0NzY5MTIzXzdEOEMyMzQy] other than the bible an a few vague references by Josephus not much historical proof. still, i think he existed, i just don't know how much is fact and how much is legend. [/quote] Believe it or not, there are NO historical references from his own lifetime. The Bible and other "obscure" sources came about 70 years later. This isn't to say he didn't exist, but it's incorrect to say there is actual documentation from him during his life time...there isn't. Of course, the Romans burned Jerusalem to the ground at some point after his death. You'll often here people jump up and say, "yes, he was real, THERE ARE SOURCES." They state this as fact, but in reality, there is no actual proof of Christ's existence from the time he walked the earth. And again, that doesn't mean he wasn't there. [/quote] How else do you test a mans faith? Faith is the substance of things NOT seen... Scripture tells us there are multitudes in the valley of decision. Scripture also tells us that if a man had faith the size of a mustard seed he could say unto the mountains, move, and they would be lifted up and cast into the sea... So we see the multitudes in the valley.... without faith so much as a mustard seed. [/quote]
If you do, on what evidence do you base your conviction/belief? When I say evidence, I don't mean miracles and tradition, but scientific/historical/anthropological research.
