I don't know why you take such a hard line against Jesus

For starters it could be that Mr. Wright's claims seem to be both undocumented and completely at odds with the very researched article linked by JDCRex. What, I ask, has Mr. Wright contributed to the debate other than a simple "yes it is!"? Seriously -- that paragraph provides no evidence or data or cites of any kind in support of his claims.

There's certainly a credibility gap here between what you've offered and what JDCRex pointed us to.


Wright's claims are hardly undocumented. I suggest you start with "The Resurrection of the Son of God"

What has he contributed? Here's a list:

The paragraph I provided offered no supporting evidence. You'd have to look that up yourself. It does make the claim that historians accept the existence of a man named Jesus. That you don't puts you at the very fringe of scholarly opinion on the matter.

The fringe may be fine, after all I believe ID is scientific :-)
