    You may want to check out The Jesus Puzzle by Earl Doherty or look for Richard Carrier's On the Historicity of Jesus Christ which should be out this year.

    •  I think what Dawkins says makes most sense (0+ / 0-)
      Leading scientific atheist Richard Dawkins specifically separates the question of the existence of Jesus from the attribution of supernatural powers to him, or the accuracy of the Christian gospels.[248] Dawkins does not deny the existence of Jesus, although he dismisses the reliability of the gospel accounts.[
      I too chose to engage in if he existed. I don't anymore. There is not much point. And historically it appears someone similar was around.

      (Sidenote, when I absolutely had been reading stuff waiting to take the bar about history, a Girl I was seeing invited me to some guy who wrote about the evidence he existed, I went and it was literally- and this guy sold 1 billion books "My life was so shitty and I could forgive my father and he even converted and stopped drinking before he died" It was so hard to hold back.)

      But, Dawkins and G.A. Wells care far more about what he was and wasn't and that can't be proven, as GA Wells has even changed his position, so I just trust them.
